Citing influences such as Orange Juice, The Birthday Party and The Pop Group Glasgow-based BITE create a spikey rock sound which has resulted in plays on 6 Music and support slots with UTR favourites, Catholic Action and Honeyblood.

The four piece, which comprises an archivist, a postman, a printmaker and erstwhile crofter, formed in 2013 following a discussion about Glam Rock. And on 21 February they release their debut EP, Parasite, with a launch gig at Glasgow’s Hug And Pint venue. Recorded at the Green Door Studios, it features a generous six tracks, which are available via digital services [BandCamp below] and 50 hand-made limited edition CDs.

We recommend checking out the chaps at http://bitenoise.bandcamp.com and for those in the vicinity, getting along to their gig.

Olaf Furniss and Derick Mackinnon run music business night Born To Be Wide which celebrates its twelfth birthday this week. Their next event takes place in Edinburgh’s Electric Circus and features a self-help seminar for artists, labels and managers, focusing on promotion. Visit www.borntobewide.co.uk
