Bettie Page in the LA Times
(Thanks to Lisa F. for the link)

THE GREASE MONKEYS are supporting UNCLE JOHN & WHITELOCK this Wednesday at Oran Mor (on the corner of Byres Road & Great Western Road) in Glasgow

WEDNESDAY 15TH MARCH at ORAN MOR, Great Western Road, doors: 7.30, first band: possibly as early as 8, tickets: £7

...yeah, I know £7 is pretty steep - there's a big buzz around UJ&W at the mo' - they sold out King Tuts early January, but they're actually pretty damn good!"
A Fleshtones tribute?
Although it'll probably be Slush Central in a few hours, there's a veritable Billie Jo Spears situation out of doors. A blanket on the ground (for those not familiar with the country chanteuse). I made the antarctic trek for the Sunday paper and got splattered by a show plough for my trouble. Anyway I is back, dried off and not planning to leave the ol' "midden heid" again today. Compared to some places this 6 or 8 inch fall is nothing but it's causing chaos throughout Central Scotland today and certainly the most snow I can remember since maybe 1992 or thereabouts.
