Glasgow: The Telescopes (eng) + The Desert Willows

January 30, 2016 at NICE N SLEAZY in Glasgow.

Shoegaze Noise indie legends return to Glasgow, FINALLY!

“Founded in 1987 by Stephen Lawrie. The Telescopes have been mining a unique anti-myopian seam of highly influential experimental, drone, noise, dream & psych for over 20 years.

Their first record was a split flex-disc with Loop on Cheree Records. After a further two critically acclaimed singles for the label, they moved to What Goes On Records, where they released another two EPs and their debut album “Taste”. All of which found their way to the top of the UK independent charts, gathering ‘single of the week’ / ‘album of the month’ status in all of the British music papers of the time.

Tours followed with Spacemen 3, Primal Scream and The Jesus and Mary Chain. And it wasn’t long before The Telescopes were headliners themselves. Bark Psychosis, Whipping Boy, Slowdive, Bleach, The Cranes and Ride all played some of their earlier shows supporting them. In 1990 the group appeared at one of the UK’s biggest festivals of the time, The Reading Festival. They were one of the few bands that weren’t bottled off the stage at the event. However, the increasing violent interactions with audiences at their shows saw the group step away from their noise origins and head towards a more introspective psychedelic sound. It was around this time that What Goes On folded and Alan McGee stepped in to release the group’s material from the hands of official receivership.

One of the more interesting bands that were signed to Creation Records. The group released their second album and a string of EPs for the label. Working with Douglas Hart (The Jesus and Mary Chain) on their videos, visual artist Paul Cannel on their sleeve work and Laika’s Guy Fixsen in the studio. The final EP for the label registered in the UK mainstream top 80 after being hit listed on BBC Radio 1 by Mark Goodyear. The group were also favoured by John Peel and recorded two BBC Radio 1 sessions for him. Marc Riley and Mark Radcliffe also had them in the studio for a session around the time of their 2nd album and MTV ran features. The Guardian’s Alexis Petridis described The Telescopes as having “an almost fragile sense of elegance and melody”.

Then in 1992 the group underwent an eight year hiatus, resuming output in the year 2000 with a revolving line up. A stream of releases followed on labels such as Double Agent (USA), Trensmat (Ireland), Champion Version (UK), Antenna (UK), Norman Records (UK), Static Charge (UK), Mind Expansion (USA), Fourier Transform (UK), Textile Records (France), Dream Machine Records (UK) and Hungry Audio (UK). Most physical copies selling out in advance.

“The Telescopes have resurfaced and I am amazed and glad they are still practicing their mysterious art” (John Peel) ”


The Desert Willows, a fresh new Glasgow 3 piece have mastered the raw garage 60’s influenced sound, finely mixed in a cocktail of catchy riffs with resonating vocals which can and will reach screaming explosive heights.

Glasgow: Sensu // Mind Against // Junior // 29.01.16

January 29, 2016 at Sub Club in Glasgow.

After what feels lke a never ending festive period, January is traditonally the time to take a well deserved break for the mind, body and soul as well as the bank balance… but where’s the fun in that?

On January 29th we return to the Sub Club with an act on the cusp of something special. Since we had Mind Against play at our Life and Death showcase just over a year ago as part of our 10th birthday celebrations, they have gone from strength to stregnth, just recently entering the Resident Advisor Top 100 Dj Poll at number 18. Not bad for a couple of brothers who have only been playing togther for little over 3 years.

Joining them will be none other than Sensu’s very own Junior. The man needs no introduction as he has been doing his thing for quite some time now, showing us how it’s done since day one.

So take some time to reflect on 2015 and recharge those batteries as well as look forward to what 2016 will bring, we here at Sensu have a lot of the answers

March 03, 2016 at The Glad Cafe in Glasgow.

It is our complete pleasure to announce Daisuke Tanabe’s performance at The Glad Cafe on 3rd March 2016. We’re MASSIVE fans.


Daisuke Tanabe is a music producer from Chiba, Japan. The former art student who also lived and worked in London for some years is currently based in Tokyo, where he assembles his exceptional pieces of music. Originally coming from a techno/breakbeat background, Daisuke has developed his own style of production to create a distinctive sound between hiphop, electronica, folk and jazz.

During his time in the UK, he published for Gilles Peterson’s famous Brownswood label and performed together with Zero DB, some of the leading lights in the UK breakbeat scene. On a recent Japan tour with French hiphop instrumentalist ONRA, he once again knew to impress the audience with his unique melange of jazz, electronica and hiphop. When performing live, Daisuke succeeds in combining his instrumental tracks with hiphop acappellas and creates an extraordinary atmosphere.



Joining the Jays of the hip hop world (J Dilla/Jay Electronica/Jay Z) we have the beautiful sounds of Save As Collective’s Jay Rolex (formerly Martin Rolex).
Rolex follows J Dilla’s lead in carefully selecting samples and grooves and cutting them to create laid back tracks invariably featuring lush Rhodes, strings, old school soul vocals, vinyl crackle and good vibes. On occasion, Rolex is joined live by Save As cohort MC Almond Milk.

Address: The Glad Cafe, 1006a Pollokshaws Road, Shawlands, Glasgow

Glasgow: Double Struggle Pt. 2 | TBC | Old Prides & Slowlight at Old Hairdressers

February 05, 2016 at The Old Hairdressers in Glasgow.

We’re still seeking the perfect local headliner for this as we’ve been on the trail of a few of Glasgow‘s more elusive and rare breeds of indie/punk band with a little bad luck getting in the way of cementing an appearance.

Old Prides are from Newcastle and play melancholy indie/punk with those fuzzy dreamy guitars we all love. Frontman Steve Chell was in Worry Party who were also dead good.

Slowlight is a local emo/punk band who love old dischord era bands and other such guitar based music from the 90s. Colin O’Hara played in No Kilter & Trapped In Kansas too. www.slowlightglasgow.bancamp.com

If you’re amazing local indie/emo/punk band is interested in having fun with us on a Friday night at the old hairdressers please let us know.

Friday 5th February
The Old Hairdressers
£5 OTD
Go to both our Double Struggle shows for £8

Glasgow: FOTOC Annual Ceilidh 2016

FOTOC Annual Ceilidh

GUU Debates Chamber

Doors @ 7.30

Adult – £10
Student / Low wage / Discretion Concession – £5
Family – £25

On the 31st of January FOTOC will be hosting their 8th Annual Ceilidh. Each year builds on the last and is set to be a great night once more – we would love to see you there!

And its all for a good cause.

FOTOC is small Scottish charity which was founded in 2008 to support Tithandizane Orphan Care Centre in Bangwe, Southern Malawi. FOTOC is 100% run by volunteers to ensure every penny of your donation goes to our charitable activities.
This year, FOTOC is expanding its remit and reforming our charity a bit. These changes will open up the FOTOC fund to a wider range of different Community Based Organisations in the community of Bangwe. This could be funding food supplements at an orphanage for a year, it could be providing funds to fix damaged homes, it could be funding a training programme at a youth centre, anything for a good cause really!
Our Annual Ceilidh is the biggest event of our year and the beating heart of our bank balance – please come along and show your support for a very worthy cause!

Since 2008 our annual ceilidh’s have grown and grown and, to be honest, I think we’re getting quite good at it. We’ll have the usual huge raffle, brilliant band and the annual ever politicised Whisky Challenge (sponsor to be announced!)

Tickets are £10 standard, £5 for a discretion concession (whether you are student, unemployed, or just skint on the night you are entitled!) and £25 for families. Tickets available on the door, or can be booked in advance through contacts at the bottom.

Want to know more? Want to donate a raffle prize!? What to help promote the event? (mon!)
