Renowned for playing dynamic sets of stripped, grooving, techno and house, they have had a slew of releases on their own Soma and Paragraph labels,The legendary UK techno duo of Stuart McMillan and Orde Meikle will be returning to the Ironworks in September. They have played all over the world including residencies at Pressure, Sub Club and Fabric and of course organising and playing at the Slam Tent at T in the Park since 1997.

Their longevity is a result of a traditional punk ethic where Manager, Dave Clarke, is the invisible third member of the band. The three of them share a passion for music and a debauched past which started with soul weekenders, punk and reggae through to The Clash and early acid-house at the Sub Club.

“If the sound of France is filtered disco and London is dominated by sub-urban acid house inflections with more breakdowns than Frank Butcher; Glasgow is dark, funky, bass heavy, sweaty, writhing, sleazy techno, punctuated with house grooves. It’s a sound that reflects the environment – long nights enveloped by a warm friendly vibrant crowd who identify more with the US than the UK’s capital. It’s Slam’s sound, and Slam’s sound is the soundtrack to every Scot’s best night out.”

Tickets are available on Friday the 6th of April via www.IronworksVenue.com.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at chris@igi.gs
