About CUZ -
Mike Watt and Sam Dook take their creative partnership on the road for the first time since they met, in Australia in 2006, when both The Stooges and The Go! Team were playing at The Big Day Out festival. What started as a tour diary style exchange turned into the sharing of home-recorded demos, resulting in their debut album ‘Tamatebako’.
The Mike Watt / Sam Dook collaboration elicits a double take from most people. Their contrasting styles have resulted in a well crafted and unusual mix of experimental rock, psyche folk and beat poetry.
Weaving eclectic influence- from Japanese folklore (the ‘tamatebako’ is a Pandora-style box featured in the ‘Urashima Tarō’ legend), through ancient British landmarks, to personal loss- into a heady mix of whisky-gnarl, motoric riff, thrift-store percussion and toy synth, the effect is a tight, groovy, ever-elusive, outsider pop. Vocals come from both Watt and Dook, often within the same song, representing an unlikely pairing of throaty drawl and choir-boy purity that works magnificently.
A ltd edition 7” vinyl will be available to buy on the tour: The Lighthouse Keeper b/w Bad Veronica, which is a poem performed by beat writer Charley Plymell.

Stereo is DELIGHTED to be bringing John Moran to Glasgow, to perform his latest solo music/theater work – Etudes: Amsterdam. This solo work was commissioned (2011) by Amsterdam Fringe and Mayfest, Bristol. It won the title BEST OF FRINGE at Spoleto Fringe (Italy) and Amsterdam Fringe (Netherlands), and has since been performed across Germany, Poland, Netherlands, Italy and UK.
Originally this Scottish debut of *Amsterdam* was going to be a co-production between The Arches and Stereo. In fact it was in The Arches that we first saw John Moran’s incredible composition/choreography/
Don’t miss this rare chance to see John do his thing.
And big love from Stereo to all at The Arches past present and future xox#savethearches
Thur 30th July
Or on the door…
More on John Moran:
American composer / performer John Moran, has been called the ‘protege of Philip Glass’, having been discovered by Glass at a young age. In 2003, Glass was quoted as saying, “I am convinced that there is no more important composer working today, than John Moran.” His works of musictheater have featured performers such as Allen Ginsberg, Iggy Pop, Uma Thurman and Julia Stiles, receiving numerous awards internationally. The Boston Globe has written, “Moran is a modern-day Mozart.” Having been known as a leading figure in New York theater in the 1990′s, Moran then developed a new, and very simplified style of presenting theater, and began touring internationally under the name ‘John Moran…and his neighbor, Saori’ – with Japanese dancer, Saori Tsukada. Before the artist relocated to Europe and Asia, in 2008, The New York Times called these performances, “One of the most important and innovative artistic collaborations of New York City.”, and TimeOut Magazine wrote, “With a one-hour show, Moran has reaffirmed his reputation as one of the most important (and underrated) figures in the avant-garde.”
This solo work was commissioned (2011) by Amsterdam Fringe and Mayfest, Bristol. It won the title BEST OF FRINGE at Spoleto Fringe (Italy) and Amsterdam Fringe (Netherlands), and has since been performed across Germany, Poland, Netherlands, Italy and UK.
INTER- is a new event series for the performance of multi-channel and surround sound work, and other work made specifically for loudspeakers.
We’ll be presenting work and practices across aesthetic, conceptual and technical boundaries. We are excited to see what develops through these events.
Perhaps a broad range of
utopian/dystopian soundscapes – fragments – phone clips – club diffusions – field-recordings – youtube rips
Join us for the first night on Wed 8th July from 7.30pm

So after our month off we’ve come back fresh with ideas for how we can innovate the way we document just how great it is to #HOM.
We Should Hang Out More is about people. People are sexy. Like, really sexy. Like, so sexy that we thought we’d bring in one of the best young talents in the world of photography to document just how sexy everyone is.
From the pages of Vogue, Fashion week in NYC to drag queens in LA or dinner with Adam Lambert – the career of BIGBADLLAMA (Tony Webster), has taken off at rocket pace.
He spent 7 years as a humanitarian aid worker, travelling the globe and developing a passion for photography which has seen him featured on Vogue.it over ten times, shot with Boy London, Elle UK, shoot music videos with Rupauls Drag Race winner Raja Gemini, shoot at New York Fashion week and when he’s not doing that he’s cuddling his two little dogs or photographing scantily clad men for his side project ‘filthybadllama’ – which has been dubbed ‘homotography’ or ‘hipster porn’.
Probably worth mentioning his last club shoot in Glasgow… Mixmag’s feature on Subculture’s 20th birthday…
Stereo is a great space for its urban feel with all its nooks and crannies; we thought we might as well go and set up a booth in one of them where Tony can do his thing.
Now getting your photo taken by someone who has snapped for the most famous fashion publications (F*****G VOGUE!!) in the world can be intimidating so just to take the edge off we thought we’d throw in a few surprises on our runway…. Expect the unexpected.
AS ALWAYS El Horno, Shahaa Tops and The Phatman Bhatman will be providing aural and visual delight from start to finish – the dance floor will be its own domain; there’s no obligation to make it into Tony’s next Vogue spread but…y’know, you’re gorgeous; it would be a shame not to.
Vogue-quality photos for all and salacious disco vibes for £6?
Don’t say we’re not good to you ☺
Lights, camera… #HOM… Action.
