Motorettes Gear Up for Tramps Gig; the BIG Razz Interview
Byline: By Rick Fulton
IT will almost be a home coming for hot new band The Motorettes when they play Glasgow's best indie night Tramps With Amps.
The Geordie lead singer and guitarist Robin Howe's mum comes from Greenock and he admits the town is becoming more important to him.
He said: "Me mam, Barbara, grew up in Greenock and my grandparents lived there.
"I used to go up there three or four times a year and drive up for Christmas. It's canny, I love going back up there.
"I feel quite tied to the place because I've spent so much time in Greenock."
Robin and brothers, Jack and Jed Laidlaw, from Tynemouth, headline Tramps With Amps at The Classic Grand, Glasgow, on Saturday, November 25.
They are supported by some top unsigned Scots bands including Brady Cole, who have supported Foo Fighters, Target 32, Montra and The Flykicks.
DJ on the night will be yours truly and I will be playing a mix of indie, electro, rock and unsigned Scots bands.
Robin admits he's attracted to a club that plays that kind of mix. …
