FRETS is beyond excited to announce The Scars featuring Tam Dean Burn and Port Sulphur will both be in concert at the Voodoo Rooms on Saturday 17th June - tickets are available from FRETS www.fretsconcerts.com
The Scars were born in the first wave of Scotland’s punk explosion and made their mark with the cult classic debut single ‘Adult/ery’ & ‘Horrorshow’on the legendary Fast Product label. Over hundreds of live shows they developed their sound and vision, becoming a favourite of the rock press with the album ‘Author! Author!’ which is still highly regarded.
Today’s lineup features three founding members, now fronted by the spectacular Tam Dean Burn, and together they accelerate from 70s glam pop to dystopian cyberfunk storytelling without a single glance in the rear view mirror.
The Scars’ live show has always been a volatile, theatrical affair, and the audience at 2022’s ‘Hungry Beat’ book launch will testify that the band’s fire is undiminished!
Port Sulphur performed a sold-out concert at the CCA at the end of last year in celebration of the release of their number 1 album ‘Speed Of Life’, which was released on Creeping Bent via Last Night From Glasgow. The group performed live to a screening of Grant McPhee’s ‘Beyond The Speed Of Life’ film as part of the maxi-media event.
Port Sulphur collaborated on their first album (‘Paranoic Critical’) with post-punk heroes Alan Vega (Suicide), Vic Godard (Subway Sect), Gareth Sager (The Pop Group), Davy Henderson (Fire Engines), James Kirk (Orange Juice), however the modus operandi changed with ‘Speed Of Life’, which was an instrumental album that owed more to German experimental rock music of the 1970s.
