As their excellent Bugged Out mix (released last year) shows, they're just as adept at causing a stir using decks as opposed to drums.
If you can still stand after their Barrowlands gig, make your way to underground dance den Chambre 69 for an exclusive aftershow, where St Albans' finest will treat you to a bounty of electro and disco, with just a smattering of techno to keep things interesting.
Support comes from bearded techno chap PMcQ and Glasgow's own Alaska.
l Friendly Fires DJ Set, Chambre 69, tomorrow, 11pm – 3am, £5.
IF, like me, you enjoy tea and biscuits as much as techno and basslines, then Mr. Scruff's eclectic live shows are a must.
Taking to the decks for four full hours, he fuses together just about every disparate genre you can imagine, and the results are delightfully schizophrenic and highly danceable.
From disco to jazz to soul to reggae to tribal rhythms to minimal house, the scruffy one leaves no musical stone unturned on his journey.
And as always, he'll be accompanied by his humorous drawings of potatoes along the way. Added bonus: his range of tea and tea accessories, Make Us A Brew, will be available to sample and buy. I recommend the invigorating, pepperminty Look Lively
l Mr. Scruff: Keep It Unreal, The Arches, tomorrow, 10pm – 3am, £12.50.
Have a Fling
OLDER generations will remember ceilidhs and bask in the warm memories of courting, drinking and dancing the night away. They are the lucky ones.
For me, school ceilidhs were characterised by the pain of having to dance with the tubbiest and most sweaty-palmed of my male classmates, having been passed over for selection by every single girl.
It's something I'm still working on getting over, so thank goodness for Glasgow DJ and promoter Billy Milligan and his ceilidh-in-the-club concept.
The Fling features DJs marrying contemporary music to the traditional ceilidh music being played by the live band.
Previous Flings have been held in the Tall Ship, at Oran Mor and it also had a five- night run at the Edinburgh Fringe, all resulting in much breathless panting and, more importantly, good press.
Hopefully, with a little encouragement I can find the nerve to strip my willow once and for all.
If not Death Disco is on next door at the same time, so everyone's a winner.
l The Fling, The Arches (Midland Street), Saturday, 10pm – 3am, £12.
