Glasswerk : New in 2007

Feat: Switches, The Bluetones, Keith and many more.

This New Year at Glasswerk is going to be the best so far, as we have an amazing line up of gigs with some top bands, old and new, especially for you. Some of the amazing artists we have include The Bluetones, Quit Your Day Job, OPM, Switches and Keith amongst many, many more.


The Bluetones are the classic pop group, which many people will surely be excited to see again. From extensive solo touring, Mark Morris returns to form the original Bluetones line-up that rocked the 90’s with hits like Cut Some Rug and Slight Return. They will be playing Koko, London on 27th April as part of the Outbreak festival hosted by Glasswerk and XFM. link

Quit Your Day Job are a hot Swedish band, who will be playing The Fly, London on 30th January, Night and Day Café, Manchester on 31st January, Korova, Liverpool on 1st February and Underground, Southport on 2nd February. Formed after punk rock finally hit Scandanavia, QYDJ Join up with Sweden’s finest and become one of the Freaks. link

OPM, creators of THAT legendary skater hit single, Heaven is a Half Pipe, will be playing part of a Glasswerk showcase at the Islington Bar Academy, London on 28th February. OPM support for this gig will be the teen-rockers KOOPA who landed the first top 40 hit for an unsigned band…ever.

Switches are a Southend band who play indie rock, glam and pop. They will be playing Black Sheep Bar, Croydon on 5th February. link

Keith are a new Manchester based band, whose debut album, Red Thread, came out last year. They are playing Jabez Clegg, Manchester on 15th February and Underground, Southport 17th February. Expect an excellent rendition of their epic single Mona Lisa’s Child. link

The Sleeping open their UK tour with a show in Liverpool, Barfly on 4th February. Having been featured on various computer games and movies their songs may be familiar to you. Their edgy style of alt-metal means they slot right in with tour mates Senses Fail and the band are also labels mates of Hatebreed and Moros Eros. link

Flood of Red are Glasgow’s answer to Enter Shikari and form a hefty bill for the Liverpool show on Febraury 4th supporting The Sleeping. Their blend of Screamo and 2-step is fusio- filled energy from the first beat to the last.

From the Carnival of Horrors – headline Liverpool the Barfly on 21st February. The death metal – horrorcore band are possibly the most terrifying band ever and definitely the heaviest thing ever to come out of Swindon. Their 2006 5 track EP ‘Massacre of the undead’ has been a revelation and built their following to its current vast state. link

Ripchord are currently touring with Mumm Ra and Pigeon Detectives, and are heading out again with Kaiser Chiefs later in the year, 2007 is going be a great year for Ripchord. Performing at the opening Club Glasswerk in Liverpool Barfly on Febraury 28th. link

Slaves to Gravity London’s meaty rock quartet land three Northwest shows with Glasswerk and can be caught at Liverpool Barfly 15th February, The Underground in Southport on 16th or Dry Bar Manchester on the 17th. Catch the first one and follow the ex GA-Gas and Ariel-X members around their UK tour. link

Hafdis Huld had one of 2006’s top tracks in Tomoko. The Icelandic beauty has worked with FC Kahuna and iconic Icelandic band Gus Gus. After a short UK tour and a special show in Korova, Liverpool on the 8th Feb it’s off to Europe for Hafdis. link

Ten Reasons to Live are causing a big stir in the North. Liverpool born and bred, their live shows are becoming something of folklore legend. Catchy rock music was never done so good. It’s down to London in February before returning for a show on March 3rd at Liverpool Academy. link

Linchpin sound like your new favourite band. So, “Your favourite band is playing Liverpool Barfly 13th March!” This show comes amid extensive touring for the start of 2007. If praise from Dave Grohl and Kerrang! isn’t enough to win you over, go see the exciting sixteen year olds for yourself and get your head blown off. link

This year includes the rather exciting arrival of Club Glasswerk. These nights will be taking place every last Friday of the month in London, every last Wednesday in Liverpool and every Friday in Southport. Launching in London’s Purple Turtle on January 26th plenty of sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll clichés.
