Upcoming MTAT Shows

by writeyeranezine

There are a whole bunch of Make-That-A-Take shows coming up between now and the end of the year, a couple of which we can’t announced yet but are very excited about. Full details will be available very soon but pencil “attending the punk rock show” into your diary for both Friday 4th and Saturday 26th October. Both shows will be rocking, I promise.

Also, we’ve introduced a MTAT “Season Ticket” for the first time. Fifty pounds will gain you access to all MTAT show in 2013, including a full weekend pass for Book Yer Ane Fest VII and entry to Mini-Fest on Saturday 28th September, along with an immediate download of Make Yer Ane Comp IV, a personalised MTAT comp, a bunch of cool shit from our merch/distro, a personalised and hand-numbered Season Ticket and more. If you think about all the quality bands you’ll see at our shows this year, it works out at less than a pound a band; £50 for over 50 bands from all across the world is a bargain, I’m sure you’ll agree.

You can buy your Season Ticket at the MTAT Bandcamp page. All gig posters and art by Jamie Wright.

steaks lemonaids show

The first show in the newly refurbished Kage with;

THE KIMBERLY STEAKS
Full-blast short sharp bursts of 90s Gilman Street gobby melodic punk worship with characteristic Scottish cynicism delivered at 200mph like Osker/J Church with the underlying tenderness of Jawbreaker, etc. On tour with The Lemonaids, the Steaks will be tighter than John Q Public and will be in and out then drinking your beer within 20 minutes. Get the “Terminal Boredeom” EP, one of the best releases of 2012. Split 7″ with Cleavers incoming.

THE LEMONAIDS
Super-melodic harmony-laden bubblegum surf pop-punk rock’n’roll goodness influenced by the likes of The Beach Boys/The Queers/Teen Idles from Glasgow. One of the tightest bands in the country, these guys tore with house down when they played with Masked Intruder recently. This will be their first MTAT show despite our previous efforts to get them up here. On tour with the Steaks, this will be like a sugary sweet dessert.

SPAT
Raging slabs of politically-fuelled d-beat/crust/hxc madness from Edinburgh via London and Poland, Spat spit out uncompromising hardcore punk ragers like Discharge, Oi Polloi and Dead Kennedys falling out at an anarchist all-dayer. Their “Consumers Suck” LP is an unforgiving banger and the upcoming “Nihilistic Views” EP is a suitably pissed off progression. Check them out at Kage for the first time.

PANICBYFLARE
Upbeat melodic driving pop-punk/post-hardcore from young Dundee three-piece fresh from supporting Irish punks Axis Of bring their super-hooky Alkaline Trio/Rise Against-esque bangers to a MTAT for the first time. Mixing fat riffs and pop-punk hooks, we’re very much looking forward to hosting these guys at Kage. Get down early!

ghost mice dundee 2013

GHOST MICE (USA)
Acoustic folk-punk pioneers and founders of the legendary Plan-It-X Records from Bloomington, Indiana return to Dundee for the first time since 2007. With an extensive discography including four full-lengths and innumerable split EPs with the likes of Andrew Jackson Jihad, Paul Baribeau and ONSIND, the two-piece released the “All We Got Is Each Other” LP last year. Frontman Chris Clavin also recently published “Free Pizza For Life; The Early Years of Plan-It-X” which is a must read for all involved in the DIY punk scene. Having toured all over the world with their positive personal and political sing-a-long anthems, it’s our pleasure to welcome Ghost Mice back to Dundee.

BILLY LIAR
Scotland’s finest angry young man turned romantic acoustic punk rock poet returns to his second home in Dundee armed with tales of love, loss, life and everything in between. The “Ghosts Of Punk Rock” EP released through MTAT and Forest Records is further evidence of Billy’s evolution from snarling punk rocker to thoughtful and engaging storyteller. Having toured all round Europe and played the likes of Rebellion, Strummercamp and The Golden Hours festivals, Billy is one of our most treasured acts. His new single is going to blow minds.

TURTLE LAMONE
Piano-led haunting yet hopeful romantic punk rock balladry from the former voice of The Stay Gones, mastermind behind Walk The Plank Promotions and all round super-nice guy Raph, from Cambridge via Edinburgh. Raph has stepped out on his own after the demise of his former band and comes armed with a fistful of heart-breakers and tales of a life lived on the road.

BROKEN STORIES
Acoustic punk two-piece from the wilds of rural Perthshire return to Cerberus after supporting Jeff Rowe last year with their sparkling debut EP under their belt. Upbeat yet reflective, these guys play fiddle-fuelled acoustic punk bangers along the lines of Chuck Ragan, Austin Lucas and Ghost Mice themselves. Good times await.

cut ups edinburgh

THE CUT UPS (ENG)
We are very excited to bring Exeter’s finest soulful melodic punk rockers back to Dundee for the first time since Book Yer Ane Fest IV. Their third full-length “Building Bridges. Starting Here” was released last year on Household Name Records and was one of the finest albums of 2012, as well as being their most cohesive and anthemic record to date. The Cut Ups are one of our collective favourite bands and are the nicest bunch in UK punk rock. This will be their first Scottish show in 3 years so dig into their back catalogue and get ready for the sing-a-longs. Get stoked!

THE KIMBERLY STEAKS
One of the most under-rated bands in the country, The Kimberly Steaks bring pure early 90s Gilman Street worship together with characteristic Scottish cynicism and spit out short, fast, gobby melodic pop-punk bangers at 200mph. Like Jawbreaker having hangover breakfast with Osker, the Steaks will be in, out and drinking your beer before you know it. Split 7″ with Cleavers incoming.

THE WALKING TARGETS
Wise beyond their years Edinburgh young team punks bring their ridiculously catchy yet grizzled pop-punk back to the Banshee.

The shape of cowpunk to come!

casually dressed poster

CASUALLY DRESSED (GER)
Passionate full-throated and anthemic melodic post-hardcore merchants from Freiburg, Germany paying their very first visit to Scotland. Last year’s “Trial and Execution” EP is an absolute belter and is a work of strength, continuity and purpose. Casually Dressed have been touring all over the mainland and have shared stages with the likes of The Flatliners, Set Your Goals and Apologies, I Have None, which gives a good representation of the hard-edged emo/post-hxc landscape these guys inhabit. If Thrice/AoF/FFAF with a heavy dose of conviction is your bag, you’ll find much to love here.

MIDDAY COMMITTEE (ENG)
Saccharine-sweet youthful modern melodic pop-punk/emo four-piece from Portsmouth on tour with Casually Dressed are also visiting the east coast of Scotland for the first time.

TERRAFRAID
Top quality 90s emo/punk meets epic 80s pop-balladry by way of a distinctly Scottish indie sensibility, this Dundee four-piece are one of the most exciting and undefinable acts to come from the east coast in quite some time. Featuring members of Bonehouse and From The Tracks, Terrafraid deal in massive sing-a-long anthems that tug on your heartstrings whilst cheekily stealing your beer with a smile on their faces and hearts on their sleeves.

FIRST STEP TO FAILURE
Super-fast gobby melodic skate punk rock’n’roll like your granny used to make from Glasgow old Cold War Legacy Records. This will be the first time that they’ve played Dundee in a very long time and their brand of Epitaph/Fat Wreck technical and hooky skate-punk goodness will be like pulling on your favourite old hoodie. If you don’t have a soft spot for NOFX/Bad Religion/Pennywise-esque good times, what the hell is wrong with you???

PMX (Reunion Show!)
The Perth skate/tech/pop punk legends reunite for their first show in over 5 years and play BYAF for the very first time.
