Now then, where could I find a place with great bands, iconic venues and

:00:07.:00:15.

brilliant live performances? Oh, yes, I know, Glasgow for the 2017

:00:16.:00:32.

6Music Festival. On tonight's show we will be bringing you highlights

:00:33.:00:38.

of the festival with performances from Sparks, The Jesus And Mary

:00:39.:00:55.

Chain, War paint and gold frappe. The 6Music Festival has been taking

:00:56.:00:58.

place at venues across the city over the weekend and thousands of people

:00:59.:01:03.

have turned out for what is a really brilliant line-up and we will bring

:01:04.:01:07.

you great performances from the O2 Academy and also from Barrowlands.

:01:08.:01:16.

Glasgow has been declared a UNESCO city of music. I did not think you

:01:17.:01:21.

could be such a thing, but Glasgow is one. Before the music, here is a

:01:22.:01:28.

reminder of Glasgow's great music heritage. On average there is a

:01:29.:01:33.

staggering 130 separate gigs on a typical week in Glasgow and whatever

:01:34.:01:38.

you taste, you can take your pick from hip-hop to float, or from

:01:39.:01:43.

classical to Indy. But pop has played a large part in Glasgow's

:01:44.:01:48.

music story. It was the birthplace of Lonnie Donegan who notched a

:01:49.:01:52.

whopping 17 top ten hits in the UK and was the first British male

:01:53.:02:03.

singer with two US top ten records. Lonnie Donegan left Glasgow as a

:02:04.:02:08.

youngster, but in the 60s the city's home-grown talent included Lulu and

:02:09.:02:15.

the raw blues of Alex Harvey who in the 70s went on to be a sensation.

:02:16.:02:22.

The 80s was a boom time for Glasgow music, thanks partly to an indie

:02:23.:02:27.

label set up in one of Glasgow's distinctive tenement flats. Postcard

:02:28.:02:40.

Records. Tagging itself the sound of Young Scotland, it was at the

:02:41.:02:44.

forefront of the British indie music scene and grab the attention of the

:02:45.:02:48.

London based music industry, so it was not lobby for their groups were

:02:49.:02:57.

appearing on Top of the Pops. Bands like Altered Images, that Bluebells

:02:58.:03:06.

and Love And Money to name just a few. Glasgow bands were becoming

:03:07.:03:13.

critically and commercially successful. In 1985 the Jesus And

:03:14.:03:24.

Mary Chain forced UK to the front of the punk scene. By the end of the

:03:25.:03:32.

decade Texas were becoming a household name and Deacon Blue were

:03:33.:03:41.

top of the household charts. When the city became the European capital

:03:42.:03:47.

of culture in 1990 it was not long before Primal Scream were picking up

:03:48.:03:53.

the first ever Mercury music prize. Wet White Wet broke all records in

:03:54.:04:00.

1994 with that song and it was not one, but three Glasgow bands that

:04:01.:04:06.

Kurt Cobain name checked some his favourites. But the city was not

:04:07.:04:16.

just producing great musicians. It had always been an unmissable stop

:04:17.:04:25.

on tour. Way before Oasis, there were a number of venues in Glasgow

:04:26.:04:29.

that attracted the biggest names in music. In the late 60s Pink Floyd

:04:30.:04:37.

and Jimi Hendrix strutted on its stages and when the Apollo opened in

:04:38.:04:41.

1963 it attracted everyone from Aber to the clash. Musicians found the

:04:42.:04:51.

Apollo's atmosphere electrifying. AC/DC recorded their first live

:04:52.:04:54.

album there and David Bowie said it was one of his favourite places. You

:04:55.:05:01.

would agree with most artists who say the Glasgow audience is one of

:05:02.:05:05.

the best you can get. It is exceptional. Why is it? They seem

:05:06.:05:11.

intoxicated with the idea of a theatrical show. And it is one venue

:05:12.:05:17.

that still intoxicated every musician, the Barrowlands. The

:05:18.:05:22.

original building was opened in 1934 by Maggie McKeever and now it has

:05:23.:05:30.

reached iconic music venue status. It evolved with music tastes over

:05:31.:05:33.

the years from a date night dance hall in the 50s to a raucous,

:05:34.:05:38.

unmissable tour dates for the great and the good. It has been name

:05:39.:05:42.

checked as one of the best places in the world to play. It is only unique

:05:43.:05:47.

venue which has become a rite of passage for every bad. For when the

:05:48.:05:55.

likes of Dell and Sebastien and Travis all stepped onto its hallowed

:05:56.:06:04.

stage, they knew they had made it. Where better than to pick of this

A great performance at Barrowlands last night. He was on the BBC Sound

:25:27.:25:32.

of list in 2016. So much amazing stuff going on here at the 6Music

:25:33.:25:38.

Festival across the weekend, so your best bet is to check it out at the

:25:39.:25:44.

website. But we have still got loads of great music here tonight,

:25:45.:25:52.

including performances from Sparks, Feature Islands, and gold frappe.

:25:53.:26:02.

But first, headlining here from Albuquerque, the shins.

:26:03.:26:25.

I think I'll go home and mull this over

:26:26.:26:28.

Before I cram it down my throat At long last it's

:26:29.:26:30.

crashed, the colossal mass Has broken up into bits in my moat.

:26:31.:26:33.

Lift the mattress off the floor Walk the cramps off

:26:34.:26:38.

Go meander in the cold Hail to your dark skin

:26:39.:26:46.

Underneath the power lines seeking shade.

:26:47.:27:00.

Far above our heads are the icy heights

:27:01.:27:06.

that contain all reason It's a luscious mix of words and tricks

:27:07.:27:37.

All these squawking birds won't quit.

:27:38.:27:41.

Hold your glass up, hold it in Never betray the way

:27:42.:28:19.

One day I'll be wondering how I got so old just wondering how

:28:20.:28:26.

I never got cold wearing nothing in the snow.

:28:27.:28:32.

This is way beyond my remote concern Of being condescending

:28:33.:28:37.

All these squawking birds won't quit.

:28:38.:28:45.

Gold teeth and a curse for this town Were all in my mouth

:28:46.:30:15.

Only, I don't know how they got out, dear

:30:16.:30:20.

Turn me back into the pet I was when we met

:30:21.:30:27.

And if you'd took to me like a gull takes to the wind

:30:28.:30:42.

And I'd a-danced like the king of the eyesores

:30:43.:30:51.

And the rest of our lives would have fared well

:30:52.:30:56.

New slang when you notice the stripes

:30:57.:30:59.

Hope it's right when you die, old and bony

:31:00.:31:09.

Dawn breaks like a bull through the hall

:31:10.:31:13.

But my head's to the wall and I'm lonely

:31:14.:31:22.

And if you'd took to me like a gull takes to the wind

:31:23.:31:29.

And I'd a-danced like the kind of the eyesores

:31:30.:31:38.

And the rest of our lives would have fared well.

:31:39.:32:02.

And bleed into their buns till they melt away

:32:03.:32:16.

I'm looking in on the good life I might be doomed never to find

:32:17.:32:25.

Without a trust or flaming fields, am I too dumb to refine?

:32:26.:32:34.

I'da danced like the queen of the eyesores

:32:35.:32:42.

And the rest of our lives would'a fared well.

:32:43.:33:27.

Thirsty for your smile I watch you for a while

:33:28.:34:14.

You are a vapour trail In a deep blue sky

:34:15.:34:36.

Tremble with a sigh Glitter in your eye

:34:37.:34:45.

You seem to come and go, I never seem to know

:34:46.:34:55.

And all my time is yours as much as mine

:34:56.:35:04.

We never have enough time to show our love.

:35:05.:35:29.

Care to be clean Purge to be free You spilled my blood

:35:30.:39:17.

There's poison in them Drunken pretense

:39:18.:39:24.

I knew all along You would go to be wrong

:39:25.:39:32.

Thought I'd go up in flames, is that alright?

:39:33.:39:37.

Strike the match and set me alight You can watch my fire burn bright

:39:38.:39:41.

'Cause babes never die, babes never die

:39:42.:39:45.

Keep it for another who died I'm not going to be cut this time

:39:46.:39:49.

When I go I'll be the one who decides

:39:50.:39:52.

'Cause babes never die, babes never die

:39:53.:39:57.

Watch if I float, damned if I don't Watch if I float, damned if I don't

:39:58.:40:19.

Thought I'd go up in flames, is that alright?

:40:20.:40:23.

Strike the match and set me alight You can watch my fire burn bright

:40:24.:40:27.

'Cause babes never die, babes never die

:40:28.:40:33.

Keep it for another who died I'm not going to be cut this time

:40:34.:40:37.

When I go I'll be the one who decides

:40:38.:40:39.

'Cause babes never die, babes never die

:40:40.:41:01.

All this time I was waiting for you to go and tell me

:41:02.:41:09.

Go and tell me all the things that I've done wrong

:41:10.:41:40.

Babes never die! Babes never die!

:41:41.:42:40.

# Nobody move, there's blood on the floor

:42:41.:42:43.

# So please give it back, cos it's not yours to take!

:42:44.:42:59.

# It must've fell when I lost my mind

:43:00.:43:04.

# Deep in the cut, drowning it in pain

:43:05.:43:10.

# Somebody help, cos I can't find my way

:43:11.:43:16.

# Somebody tell me how I'm supposed to feel

:43:17.:43:48.

# When I'm sitting here knowing this ain't real

:43:49.:43:54.

# Why in the world would I give my heart to you?

:43:55.:43:58.

# Just to watch you throw it in the trash?

:43:59.:44:04.

# I've been traveling so long, I don't think I can hold on

:44:05.:44:09.

# Where were you when I needed you the most?

:44:10.:44:15.

# Now I'm sitting here with a black hole in my chest

:44:16.:44:21.

# So please give it back, cos it's not yours to take!

:44:22.:45:49.

# It must've fell when I lost my mind

:45:50.:45:54.

# Deep in the cut, drowning it in pain

:45:55.:46:00.

# Somebody help, cos I can't find my way

:46:01.:46:05.

This next song is for you young ones out there.

:46:06.:46:49.

It is going to be OK. And you can clean around

:46:50.:47:10.

the wound if you want to It just takes time and

:47:11.:47:15.

you can go to the moon But if you want something to change,

:47:16.:47:25.

you gotta change your life And take your time,

:47:26.:47:31.

it just takes time It just takes time

:47:32.:47:42.

It just takes time And leave you to the night,

:47:43.:47:57.

and that's alright Because before the moonbeam comes,

:47:58.:48:10.

there's a certain calm And then there's light,

:48:11.:48:20.

it just takes time It just takes time,

:48:21.:48:27.

a little trust and your time You can change your life,

:48:28.:48:33.

it just takes time And I can sit and talk,

:48:34.:48:42.

because I was just like you So arrogant and brave,

:48:43.:48:53.

impetuous and blue But trust me as a friend,

:48:54.:48:59.

and I'll do all that I can do And I'd do anything for you,

:49:00.:49:05.

because I want to see you through It just takes time,

:49:06.:49:15.

hard work and your time You can change your life,

:49:16.:49:24.

it just takes time It just takes time,

:49:25.:49:35.

hard work and your time Peter Islands kicking off the

:49:36.:50:24.

festival at the O2 Academy on Friday night, featuring interesting dance

:50:25.:50:29.

moves. We have still got great sets to come, but first a band I have

:50:30.:50:33.

been a fan since I was a teenager, the maestros, Sparks.

:50:34.:51:36.

His is the number one song in heaven.

:51:37.:52:03.

If you should die before you wake If you should die

:52:04.:52:05.

while crossing the street The song that you'll hear, I guarantee

:52:06.:52:08.

It's number one, all over heaven It's number one, all over heaven

:52:09.:52:13.

The one that's the rage up here in the clouds

:52:14.:52:27.

Lyrically weak, but the music's the thing

:52:28.:52:35.

Gabriel plays it, God how he plays it.

:52:36.:52:45.

Gabriel plays it, let's hear him play it

:52:46.:53:39.

It's number one, all over heaven It's number one, all over heaven

:53:40.:53:44.

The song filters down, down through the clouds

:53:45.:54:00.

It reaches the earth and winds all around

:54:01.:54:05.

And then it breaks up in millions of ways

:54:06.:54:10.

In your homes it becomes advertisements

:54:11.:54:37.

And in the streets it becomes the children singing.

:54:38.:54:56.

This town ain't big enough for the both of us

:54:57.:57:13.

Increasing heart beat You are a khaki-coloured bombadier

:57:14.:57:34.

This town ain't big enough for the both of us

:57:35.:57:43.

Daily except for Sunday, you dawdle into the cafe

:57:44.:57:46.

They need their protein just like you do.

This town ain't big enough for the both of us

:57:58.:58:43.

This town ain't big enough for the both of us

:58:44.:58:48.

There'll be more girls who live in town

:58:49.:59:24.

This town ain't big enough for the both of us

:59:25.:59:32.

# It's at night when they come When I'm alone, and not with anyone.

:59:33.:00:20.

# Through the shouts and music of the crowd down the road boozing.

:00:21.:00:28.

# The bins and the alleyway of the Chinese restaurant.

:00:29.:00:34.

# Number 3 for 2, and number 4 for 1.

:00:35.:00:39.

# While the abled bodied vultures monitor and pick at us.

:01:02.:01:23.

# When the light in my phone starts to lose power.

:01:24.:01:30.

# Through the karaoke it screams it's name

:01:31.:01:35.
