Chemikal Underground Comes to Aberdeen


In association with Aberdeen's Interesting Music Promotions, Glasgow's number one independent label Chemikal Underground comes to Aberdeen's Lemon Tree this Friday with some of the label's best known acts coming together for an unbeatable bill.  Recent favourites The Phantom Band, listed as one of the ten best bands of this year's T in the Park by the NME, will share some of their favourites from this year's brilliant 'Checkmate Savage' LP.  The bill also includes former Delgado Emma Pollock, a rare solo gig from former Arab Strap frontman Aidan Moffat (although the billed Best-Ofs may still turn up) and former De Rosa man Martin John Henry.  Tickets are still available at £15 each plus £1.50 booking fee.

The imp collective have yet more shows in the pipeline with Fence Records' Francois & The Atlas Mountains performing tonight along with The Balky Mule and Rozi Plain & Jakalope, while Japanese psychedelic punk act Bo Ningen with Amber Pilot and Sarah J Tingle will play a week from now on Wednesday 25th November.

On 1st December Scottish singer songwriter Findlay Napier brings his Bar Room Mountaineers back to Aberdeen for a show topped off with Davy Cattanch with Steve Crawford and, get this, Northumbrian sword dance Gaorsach Rapper and Step.

Fast forward to 15th December and there's a headline performance from Sub Pop act Fruit Bats (featuring Eric D Johnson and Ron Lewis of The Shins) along with Puzzle Muteson and local hero Steven Milne.  Finally, imp are advertising a pre-Hogmanay show on 30th December with no further clue than a tantalising "very special guests - tba".  All performances will take place in Aberdeen's Tunnels venue.
