18 Feb 2009 20:00 King Tuts *SOLD OUT* Glasgow -- all right this one isn't March and it's sold out anyway. Did any of you punks get tickets? How did I not even know about this until Kat's Twitter this evening? ANYWAY:

Man, this community needs some action (which is not the same as saying it needs to get laid, and yet--).

August 5th, secret location.

Who's going? Or, well, who wants to go, I guess. Results day for most of you -- perfect celebration, huh?

Secret gigs make me wet myself a little out of excitement. I HOPE TO SEE YOU ALL THERE.

So I was really bored and decided to have a look on Google for any Dykeenies stuff I hadn't seen yet as it normally turns up some good stuff/at least one thing I haven't read before.. I found three I hadn't read but I saw this one and thought I'd share, it made me go AWWWWWWW so badly.

They were sparring partners as boys, but brothers Brian and Andy Henderson found a new closeness writing songs in their band The DykeeniesCollapse )

From here :)

(The Jam House just called me back to tell me. I was so very confused for a second. Heeee.)

ETA: The site suggests it's over 18s; I didn't think to ask the woman when she called me (I was still half asleep). You should probably call and check before buying tickets, if you're under eighteen. :\

edinburgh date
Hey gang~

So I just called the Jam House about the gig on February 24th, and apparently nothing is actually confirmed on their end. I don't know what that's about.

The woman knew what I was talking about, though -- I'm guessing other people have asked about it already -- and she took my name and number, so hopefully someone will call me back when actual information is available.

Failing that, I plan to turn up on the door anyway and be like "heyyy so where's my good friend Brian~"

Or something.

Just thought I'd let y'all know.

new shows!
From Myspace.

Feb 14 2008 Club Radar Belfast
Feb 15 2008 Cyprus Ave Cork
Feb 16 2008 Roisin Dubh Galway
Feb 17 2008 Crawdaddy Dublin
Feb 24 2008 Jam House Edinburgh
Feb 27 2008 Tunnels Aberdeen
Feb 28 2008 Fat Sams Dundee
Feb 29 2008 ABC Glasgow

I'm gutted about the Glasgow one -- I've already got a ticket for Tegan and Sara that night. But I plan to hit up Edinburgh and Aberdeen, and I'll definitely be at the Dundee show -- Fat Sam's is basically my local club, two minutes walk from my flat in Dundee.

Ace. :D

Go buy Stitches dickwads!!!!!!!

Also, Nothing Means Everything is on the NME website/has leaked so...

The fact it's on there kind of annoys me considering what was in there today.
'K I'll do this quickly, calmly and with minimal fuss.

Jamie Fullerton on Nothing Means Everything:

"When, after you stick an album on the NME stereo, two staffers ask why in the name of Brandon Flowers' 'tache you've just put Boy Kill Boy on, you know you haven't found the new Killers. And so it was with The Dykeenies' debut, which was ejected faster than that Gary Glitter compilation the workie put on last week (after 'Rock & Roll Part 2' ended, naturally). In fairness, the opening tracks are passable synth-indie fare, hinting at why we got them on an NME tour a while back, but if they're the Wile E Coyote moments, briefly floating over the cliff edge, from there it's the plummet to the canyon floor. The fatal crash is 'Pick You Up', on which Killers-lite schmindie mashes with a super-club beat more akin to the Crazy Frog than anything that could headline a festival. Still, we'd rather listen to to 'Axel F' than Flea RHCP's Reading trumpet solo..."

1. Stop it with the Killers comparisons. No wonder they gave it a shite review if they're looking for the new Killers, considering they're fuck all like them to be perfectly honest. And Boy Kill Boy? Don't be stupid. Oh, and aren't they yet another band the NME bummed the fuck out of before quickly turning on them? Fucks sake btw.
2. Stop being so fucking fickle.
3. Unlike the very vast majority of all this indie pish they're bumming at present, every single song of theirs is strong, and they genuinely DON'T ALL SOUND THE SAME. I like how they bang on about The Twang being so good and then slagging this off, just... get taste.
4. Most of the shit written there.. was completely actually irrelevant to the album. This is another of many things I hate about the 'New Musical Express', their reviews generally make fuck all sense/are irrelevant. And how can you actually judge an album on whether a song would be good headlining a festival? There is so much amazing music out there that you'd never see at the top of the bill on the Carling Weekend or whatever else. Besides, if they've ever actually been to a Dykeenies gig they'd realise that Pick You Up is fucking ANTHEMIC, particularly live.
5. They slagged off Stitches last week as well saying they're too mature before their time?! And how it's not a patch on the demo that got them on that tour with the Maccabees and whatnot? Basically what they're saying is they like music that doesn't have all that much depth over something with a bit of substance, if you recall one of those articles I posted recently... oh ffs man I don't know, all I know is that the NME are incompetent wankers that don't know what they're on about. I wish I'd just bumped the vinyl now and not bothered buying this shit today

Anyways... thoughts?

Next single Stitches is to be released on September 3rd
The album(!!!) Nothing Means Everything is to be released on September 17th

Clean Up Your Eyes // Icons
Clean Up Your Eyes got to number 53 in the Official Charts...

yet made it to number 1 in Scotland

I think there's something far wrong there aye? However, I'm proud of them. They'll get the recognition they deserve someday.

Oh yeah and, I was bored so I made icons of Brian. Next time I'll do the whole band x____X

I'll pick you up, pick you up, pick you up...Collapse )

Hello. I bring you a freshly scanned newspaper article from last week (took my time, I know) about our beloved Dykes playing an acoustic set at their old school, Greenfaulds High... well jealous. Lanark Grammar can get to fuck

T'is a good article, worth a read aye.


LOLZ. ALSO for any Glasvegas types there's an INSTORE AT HMV ON ARGYLE STREET, LIVE PERFORMANCE AND SIGNING. At 6pm and I don't think it's wristbands! But if it is, on my head be it. I'm going, you should abandon all plans wherever in the world you are and come along to it and come up for the gigs next week at King Tuts as well.

And to conclude a lol-arious picspam:

Lmao. Okay that's a modified version of one of the pics under the cut
