United Fruit // 8th Nov // £5
FALLOW IN ASSOCIATION WITH ATC LIVE PRESENTS
From the hot-bed of artists emerging from North of the border comes Glasgow’s latest export – United Fruit. A 4-piece that deconstructs everything you thought you knew about Scottish Alt-Rock, and in its place paints an image of soaring post–punk symphony, epic meandering melody and an unstoppable energy tantamount to a Glaswegian bar brawl.
Iskandar Stewart (vox, guitar), Stuart Galbraith (guitar, vox), Marco Panagopoulos (bass) and Dean Inglis (drums) formed in 2009 after meeting at a house party gig and have since released an EP and album to rave reviews including a cover feature in Scotland’s biggest arts magazine The Skinny.
Having performed live sessions for BBC Introducing, BBC Radio Scotland, alongside airtime on the Huw Stephens Show, BBC Radio 1 Review Show with Edith Bowman, the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, XFM and Capitol FM, United Fruit certainly aren’t without their notches on the music accolade bedpost. When you add to that their multitude of UK and European tours, festival billings, SXSW and support shows with the likes of Dananananaykroyd, Twin Atlantic and Twilight Sad, it becomes strikingly apparent that United Fruit truly are rapidly becoming a force to be reckoned with.
8pm til late.
