FOMO is a night which aims to bring together works of moving image and music form artists and DJs respectively. It make it’s debut in the basement this weekend. Stereo spoke to one of the organisers , Erika Silverman to get a get a feel for the vibe of the night.
A mixture of film and music from artists throughout the city. A chance to dance, see films, get inspiration, and collaborate.
Why did you start the night?
We are inspired by the various art events throughout Glasgow like the film or art events at the city’s various festivals! Also, the DIY culture of America where friends gather in basements to have gigs, show off songs and films, sell t-shirts, and (of course) party.
What do you plan for the future?
We hope to get bigger and better! All proceeds from the night go toward future nights and supporting the artists with the aim to eventually creating a permanent space within the city. We aim to have these nights every 3 months and try to offer something new at each one.

Stereo Cafe Bar presents Batteries (a.k.a Sci-Fi Steven from Glaswegian disco/punk legends Bis – backed by all three Michael’s from We Are The Physics) – ‘The Finishing Line’ – Album Launch – with guests Rapid Tan +The Pooches
Steven Clark returns with his one-man-band project Batteries what seems like seconds after last year’s self-titled snappy New-Wave debut. The debut’s dystopian potential future themes remain, but this time both the musical and lyrical safety nets have been removed.
With the “Devo plays Queens Of The Stone Age or vice versa” mantra still a loose guide, ‘The Finishing Line’ opens with the vague reassurance of lost Punk 45 ‘The Fall-In-Love Club’ before the safety is removed for the unhinged journey ahead. Remnants of Bill Nelson’s Red Noise and Cardiacs abound in ‘Mutual Enemies’ and ‘Hidden Tracks’ while there’s edgy American metallic synth punk in ‘Pigs’, ‘Pankhurst’ and ‘Children Be Normal’ which recalls Jesus Lizard and Brainiac.
It’s a restless itchy record, fleeting pop melodies are crushed by industrial strength guitars, but one that is a cohesive reward and illustrates Steven’s unique musical vision.

Sunday 1st May at Stereo… Night School presents MAYDAY: The Number Ones + Breakfast Muff + Anxiety + Mordwaffe
THE NUMBER ONES
There can be none other. The Number Ones hail from Dublin but their permanent home is your heart. With a background in psychedelic folk and hardcore, The Number Ones thankfully sound nothing like either: theirs is a pure power pop, like The Undertones or any of the Good Vibrations groups or The Beatles with distortion pedals, or the Buzzcocks on a Yellow Pills compilation. Following stone cold classic singles, The #1s’s debut album on Static Shock is like 10 Jaegerbombs slammed straight to your brain, with all the sweet sadness and sugar-rush melody that suggests. The 4 lads’ last show at the note was a riot, let’s make this a night to remember. Sean Goucher, Cian Nugent, Eddie Kenrick, Conor Lumsen what’s the crack? Wait that’s not right..
Glasgow’s wonderkids Breakfast Muff are riotous, a beautiful day-glo punk crash making it up as they go along. Or maybe there’s a grand plan, unveiling itself so fast and with such a sharp, popped punk loving dagger if you blink you’re already enthralled. With their 2nd album Rainbow Yawn on Fuzzkill Records, BF are the best friends everyone wished they have, a distorted colourful ooze that welds melody, anger, joy, guitars and joie de vivre.
Formed in the later half of 2015, the Glasgow-stewed quadraped malignants have already faced being banned from venues, thrown off bills, chained to railings, been subject to passing diseases and doused in drinks. Members of Pennycress, The Lowest Form, Apostille, Herbert Powell, Helena Celle stick a skewer in a crusty mainline of protest peace punk a-la Rudimentary Peni / Crass, lick the tip of fast-paced falling-down-the-stairs HXC with Crudos in mind and war dispoetical about darkness, wetness and ripped crotches. Chaos with a capital URK.
Bubbling over from an unnameable group of Glasgow based reprobates, Mordwaffe are another alignment of troubled humans David Roeder, Musho Fernandez, Matt Walkerdine, Ruari MacLean, Jess Higgins. For their second show, Mordwaffe’s jams will be kicked out, a Velvets klang spearheaded into the night coalescing around Roeder’s guiding light. Off kilter with plenty underneath the distorts-fuzz.
