Feminist Rants / Questionable Advice / Too Much Pink


Ambivalently Yours, the artist behind a current residency at Glasgow’s CCA, reflects on her work and her relationship with feminism and art.


I’d like to think I became a feminist at the age of five when I told my parents I wanted to be a boy. I like to imagine that this gender rebellion, which included wearing only boy clothing, spiking my short hair and demanding to be referred to as Spike (a character from an 80’s cartoon staring Mr. T), was a reaction to my youthful awareness that gender roles are fluid, and that being a boy was both more fun and more valued than being a girl. My rebellion ended abruptly however, when a girl in the playground asked me if I was a boy or a girl. Suddenly, the idea of being ambiguous scared me back into girlhood (although my affection for men’s clothing has remained intact).

Interview: Aaron Wright, Dark Behaviour

Interview: Lilac Pin


Halina Rifai interview Glasgow duo Lilac Pin.


When Lilac Pin’s introductory track Easy hit my inbox, I think I sat for at least half an hour with a beamish smile on my face.

Interview: Nikki Cage (True Widow)


TYCI has a quick fire catch up with Nikki Cage of American ‘doomgaze’ outfit True Widow ahead of the Glasgow date of their European tour.


Obligatory questions first: Who are True Widow?
We are a band from Texas…

How would you describe your sound?
Pretty / heavy.

Interview: Emily and the Woods


TYCI chats to Emily of alternative folk outfit Emily and the Woods ahead of their Glasgow gig tonight.


Who are ‘The Woods’?
Dave on drums, Sam on bass, Benedict playing electric guitar and me (Emily) singing and playing electric guitar too.

What is your live set up like?
We are beginning to blend electronic samples in to our live set up, which is already fully electric. It’s an exciting process and one we are all very keen to explore.
