The Filthy Tongues

FRIDAY 20TH SEPTEMBER 2019

Doors

£12.50

The Filthy Tongues have occupied a unique place at the heart of Scottish alternative rock, in various manifestations, since the mid 80s.
Goodbye Mr Mackenzie, a stunning live band with Martin Metcalfe resembling the MC of a debauched, vaguely gothic cabaret,morphed into Angelfish who established a hardcore following (which remains strong today) as the band appeared in both the UK national and US college charts.
From Goodbye Mr Mackenzie, to The Filthy Tongues and everything in between, the lyrical and musical talents of Metcalfe, Fin Wilson and Derek Kelly have constantly evolved which has led to perhaps the most fascinating musical footprint of any Scottish band yet.
This period was followed by 2 albums as Isa & the Filthy Tongues which garnered various 5 star reviews and saw them played regularly on BBC6 Music. The band also featured on the soundtrack to Richard Jobson’s New Town Killers film and caught the ear of Hollywood in David Mackenzie’s film Spread.
In a colourful career the band have worked and toured with Blondie, The Ramones, Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth from the Talking Heads, Vic Chesnutt, New York Dolls, Big Audio Dynamite, Aztec Camera and many more.
When listening to The Filthy Tongues, musical critics recognise Pixies, Bunnymen, Joy Division, Nick Cave and Scott Walker influences, but the style of this ever evolving band is strikingly and individually their own.
