Evening Express (City Final) - The Guide - - Music Scene - By Eoin Smith

ON SATUR­DAY Aberdeen’s own KCHGH and Gut­terGodz take to the stage in The Moor­ings Bar along­side Scots Iron Maiden tribute act, Maiden Heaven. Formed in 2008, Gut­terGodz have been mak­ing a name for them­selves with their en­er­getic live per­for­mances. Gui­tarist Jon Davie said: “Our sound has a heavy rock back­drop, high­lighted with punk un­der­tones and a def­i­nite rock n’ roll swag­ger. “It’s full of mem­o­rable gui­tar riffs, catchy cho­ruses and has all-round good fun writ­ten all over it. “A lot of blood, sweat and tears go into our shows as we want to give the crowd some­thing to look at as well as lis­ten to. “The mu­sic scene in Aberdeen can be a bit snobby at times, and a lot peo­ple aren’t open to new things. “We have, how­ever, played with a lot of bands who we get on re­ally well with, and en­joy play­ing along­side. We’re al­ways work­ing on new ma­te­rial to keep our set fresh, and are try­ing to

get it recorded. We hope to have a four-track demo ready soon.” NEXT Thurs­day, Glas­gow coun­try­rock­ers Three Blind Wolves ap­pear at Snafu’s Dirty Hearts Club. The band will be sup­ported by coun­try-pop out­fit Matt Nor­ris & The Moon and Aberdeen in­die heroes Weather Barn. With a new sin­gle – The Boat Ride – to be re­leased at the end of the month, Weather Barn plan to step things up a gear in 2011. Bassist Steve Morris said: “We are go­ing to be record­ing a lot over the next six months, so hope­fully we’ll have a cou­ple more re­leases dur­ing the sum­mer. “Our main goals are to tour more ex­ten­sively with some good bands, and to write a full-length record that we are proud of. “Aberdeen can be a tough place to be a band. There are some great venues out there, but they are of­ten pretty quiet. “The peo­ple of Aberdeen need to re­dis­cover their love of live mu­sic.”
