Time taken to let the soul breathe

Local band The Lonely Souls perform at Nice ‘N’ Sleazy in Glasgow on Saturday, June 1, and look forward to having time to showcase songs old and new.

Still riding high on the success of second album Vital Signs, the band’s creativity shows no sign of abating.

Singer Paul Clinton said: “I have been to Nice ‘N’ Sleazy for gigs, and while the other guys have all performed there with other bands I never have, so I’m really looking forward to it.

“King Tut’s is iconic and it’s nice to be asked to play there but the restrictions on time were becoming a bit of a pain, as with half hour sets you are just warming up when it is time to say goodnight.

“We have hired out Nice ‘N’ Sleazy and have asked another Motherwell band Faces of the Moon to support us which will enable them to do 45 minutes and then we can do an hour and a half.

“We have so many songs that have yet to be recorded so it will nice to be able to perform some of them as well as going through our back catalogue, without having to limit ourselves to just a couple of songs.”

Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets cost £5, available through The Lonely Souls Facebook page.
