OOTB 348 – 23 June 2009

OOTB 23/06/09 Calum and Jimmy Carlyle Orkney’s finest kick us off with a jaunty tale of childhood games and playing soldiers in the street, named eerily ‘Commando’. Their second is a protest song which talks of ‘the promise of better days’. Jimmy has the rhythm on guitar, while Calum embellishes on Mandolin, giving warmth to […]

OOTB 347 – 16 June 2009

It was a quiet night at the Tron compared with the exceptional throngs we have had in recent weeks, but all the best people were there. In fact Liam Gallagher popped in: I didn’t have the gall to ask him if he knew any Oasis covers, but if you are reading this, then there is a good chance you missed it. That’s your fault. Man, you should have been there.

OOTB 345 – 2 June 2009

Review by Darren Thornberry Story time with JOHNNY GUITAR. Did you know he once performed nude in Hair and protested Princess Anne in an episode of Rebus? We learn all this before the first string is plucked. My love is like a feather in the night: melancholy tune written on Arran. Following are a couple […]

OOTB update + other events

Well, I’m beginning to think that the OOTB Reviewers’ Union must have called for industrial action and forgot to tell us! I am sure one of these days i’ll end up with half a dozen reviews for you to read all in one week, but in the meantime, we’re all just going to have to wait expectantly, i’m afraid…. Please, once again, accept our apologies for not having a review along with this email.

Now, the sun’s out, we’ve all had a lovely weekend, and what could be nicer in weather like this than going out to the Tron and sitting in a basement all evening? Actually, in all seriousness, it’ll be a good night, so do pop along.

OOTB 344 – 26 May 2009

Matt Snyder Matt is our first debut of the night. His set is purely instrumental piano which is a refreshing start to what is almost always a guitar-fueled evening. His first tune is a jazzy number. This really demonstrated his passion for playing. I’d love to see him on a real piano, I think he […]

OOTB REVIEW 19/05/09 The Weather Underground. The Weather Underground starts out with a bold guitar riff. His bouncy chords slide nicely into some distinctive harmonics that his voice whispers through. He punches out signature sequences throughout the song, which are particularly effective. Nice bit of edge but not too in your face. His second song […]

“A pocketful of Harmonicas”

or the review of 5/5/09

a multimedia play by Rego Gunloop the 17th

Chapter One – “Musos palace”

(Stage set: An open mic venue in the basement of the Tron, Edinburgh)

(Sound effects: baudy shouting from outside, whilst glasses clink, and a busty male barmaid laughs uproariously – the first character appears at the mic…)

OOTB 338 – 14 April 2009

Mutant Lodge Nyk started off with a set of new material, the only thing you can expect about Nyk’s songs is that you don’t know what to expect. Mr Sleaze was a bright and buzzy satire about a music night host who only opens his mouth in order to change feet. Well that’s my interpretation […]
