Matador showcase, Glasgow Cathouse late 1996

Full reviews to follow...

         
Silkworm - great noise, good tunes. And LOOK at that guitar!
                     
                             
                                   
                   
Spoon - Pixies copyists, seeming, on record, but live an almighty racket which comes across as pretty original  
                             
                                 
       
                 
Guided by Voices - Jan out of Spare Snare claimed he was almost moved to tears by this band, which maybe says more about them than I can...
