All going to plan, I’m heading to my first Martin Metcalfe and the Fornicators show in Kirkcaldy this Friday (13th).
The Fornicators have run alongside the Filthy Tongues over the last few years and mix up songs from all of Martin’s bands (including Goodbye Mr Mackenzie and Angelfish) with a range of choice covers. Have a look at YouTube and you’ll get an idea of the type of material you might hear. There’s also a live Fornicators album in the works, recorded in Glasgow a few weeks ago.
The Kirkcaldy show is being promoted by Filthy at 50 and takes place in the Windsor Hotel. Doors at 8 p.m., tickets are £10 in advance stbf. More info here.
To be honest, I’m looking forward to the feeling of not knowing quite what to expect but, amongst the Mackenzies tracks, you may well hear this particular tune:
