Forever a sucker for discordant, volatile alt-punk, it comes as a welcome surprise that Glasgow’s Cutty’s Gym have finally revealed the first taster from their anticipated EP, Zante.
Original 2-piece, Craig Mcintyre and Iain Stewart have now augmented into a foursome with the addition of Philip Differ and Marco Panagopoulos. Every member is well known in the DIY heart of Glasgow’s music scene and have all contributed massively in a long-running and dedicated tribute to its alternative history.
New release, ‘Dance Stance’ is noise fuckery at its best. Thanks to the pristine yet barbarous drumming of Stewart, this drives them to a place of staggering self-assuredness. Differ’s caustic vocal delivery elevates the acrimony leaving you exhausted. This is a vital addition to new Scottish music.
Cutty’s Gum launch their forthcoming EP at Glasgow’s Hug & Pint, 25th May with support from Objectified and Podcart favourites, Shredd.
