Introducing... The Levings

The Levings

Based in Livingston, West Lothian, The Levings were formed when Colin ‘Sid’ Baxter and Mark ‘Stranger’ Strange got together to write songs after previously being in bands together, and this slowly progressed into acoustic sessions. After refining the songs they progressed into forming a full band, adding Craig Millar (bass), Alan Strange (keys) and Craig Purves (drums).

The Levings only started out on the gig circuit in early 2008, performing mainly in central Scotland . But in this time they have already had successful gigs at Jool’s Holland Jam House in Edinburgh and the famous Barrowlands in Glasgow.

Introducing... Audiodeluxe


Audiodeluxe are Dez Bone and Sammy McHugh, a couple of part-time musical geniuses (their words!) from a small but ever expanding village called Moodiesburn near Glasgow.

They started writing songs together some time in the '90s and no one has forced them to stop yet.

They have many influences from Depeche Mode, Radiohead and Rage Against the Machine to Monty Python and crazy hippie parents and in-laws, insane friends, and Sammy’s dubious love for 70s/80s soft rock (this last influence is not in any way condoned or encouraged by the rest of the band).
