Dae Yer Ane Podcast; Episode 2 is now available for streaming and download from the MTAT Bandcamp page. I’m going to aim to get a podcast done at least once a month. As this is only the second podcast that I’ve done, it’s not perfect but I’m learning as I go along. I’ve tried to keep the inane chat to a minimum but hopefully those who listen to it can understand what I’m banging on about.
Please take a minute to check out the bands and if you like what you hear, seek them out for and discover more. Bonus points if y’all can tell me what movies the samples come from. If you think you’ve got it licked, feel free to email me with your answers and I’ll furnish ye with some kind of reward.

Whilst I was recording the podcast, I was making a stencil for spray painting CDs at the same time and I’ve spent my morning using said stencil to paint CDs for exchange in the TINS FOR TUNES campaign. The campaign will be kicking off one week from today on Friday 31st January at our first show of 2014 which will feature four of the finest flavours of Scottish hardcore ripping Kage Nightclub apart. Please bring non-perishable food items and exchange them for CDs (while stocks last) and download codes!
The campaign will be running until the end of April so please support if you can. After next week’s show, the bangers started coming in thick and fast. We’ll be hosting the first ever SPILL YER GUTS acoustic show featuring myself playing THT style alongside Little Anchors and Broken Stories at Ceberus Bar on Tuesday 11th February.
We will then be back at Kage on Saturday 15th February to bring you Robot Doctors / The Shithawks / Captains / The Rag’N’Bone Man before The Murderburgers kick off their European Tour on Thursday 13th March. Ye can keep up to date with all the shows as they are announced here.
On the UNIFORMS front, we have a shit-ton of stuff coming up over the next few months. Even though BYAF VII seems like ages ago, we haven’t been idle these last couple of months. We play our first show of the year next Saturday with our pals Get It Together in the basement of Barnton Street Music in Stirling. It’s an early show, kicking off at 7pm and it’ll be wrapped by 9.30pm at the very latest. As it’s a music shop, capacity is super-limited so get down early to make sure you can get in as doors will close come 7.30pm. I shall also be playing a solo acoustic show at Europa Music on Friar Street, Stirling from 4pm the same afternoon, so do come along and grab some MTAT releases in the coolest record shop in the central belt.
The night after the Stirling shows, I’ll be playing Tragical History Tour style at this absolute peach at Plan B Books in Glasgow alongside Marc Ruvolo of The Fur Coats, Phil Taylor from Paws and The Kimberly Steaks playing a super-rare acoustic set. Should be good fun for sure!
Our next little run of shows are all with our pals Sink Alaska and we’ll be hitting Glasgow, Leeds and Bolton on February 21/22/23rd respectively before we head off to Ireland for the first time for a long weekend of shows with Vamos and Sheepy across St. Patrick’s Day weekend. That will be something special for sure and I cannot wait to cross the Irish Sea for the first time, as it’s something that I’ve always wanted to do. We shall then be doing a bunch of Scottish dates with our pals in Bangers in April, including an incredible half-dayer at Audio in Glasgow alongside Elway, Joe McMahon of Smoke Or Fire, Roscoe Vacant and The Walking Targets on Sunday 27th April. Full details and poster, etc will all be sorted very shortly but in the meantime you can keep your eye on all our dates as they are announced here.
Right, that’s enough from me for now. We are still hosting our JANUARY SALE over at the MTAT bandcamp page and even though we’ve sold out of a fair few items, there are still some deece bargains to be had. 2014 Season Tickets are also still available for the bargain basement price of £100 and that includes entry to every MTAT show of the year (including a three-day weekend pass for Book Yer Ane Fest VIII) as well as advanced copies of every physical MTAT release of the year. Definitely worth checking out!
