A mainstay of numerous bands within the Glasgow DIY scene of the 1990ʼs – including El Hombre Trajeado. RM Hubbert has more recently been concentrating on a series of solo guitar compositions, which are based around flamenco rhythms and structures, but which are simultaneously melodically traceable to both his previous work and more contemporary styles.

Initially moving to Glasgow six years ago to study viola, Michael Marshall has since become involved with a variety of projects as stylistically diverse as chamber music, noise experamentalism and saccharin pop. A musical polyglot, Michael is an accomplished drummer, guitarist, programmer and violist and has established himself across Scotland as an exciting young musician and collaborator. He currently lives in Fife.
Howie plays bass (and occasional augmentative skworks) in Tattie Toes. One day they will have an album out on Pickled Egg, once they’ve decided the names of the songs, track running order, artwork. The band is to him a rarely seen alluring third cousin who he wants to throw mud pies at and snog simultaneously.
Howie is also a theatre practitioner. Most recently he was assistant director and workshop facilitator on The Monster in the Hall by David Greig, a farcical romp through the life of a teenage girl who cares for her disabled father and lives in fear of the social services splitting them up.
Earlier this year, Howie spent three weeks in Kenya on a working practice exchange and he collaborated with a local company to help produce street theatre. He absolutely loved this experience.
Howie first heard Dawson on John Peel in the early 90s, probably 1992. He invited Jer and Co to come and play Liverpool with his then band Sedgwick, and Howie and Jer have been friends and on/off collaborators ever since. They have cross pollinated on many an improvisation, and in From Home (4 guitars and a dancer), F’cund, Cod, Shlebie (a proper band, like) and, most notably, underground legends A Bum at the Front, whose only release ‘Front Bummage’ has been seen going for ridiculous sums of money on ebay.
During their part of Winter Cycle, Sausage Shaped Lobster will be on the cusp of Optimum Egg Profile, with Beefy Cheeks in the ascendant, so they expect to achieve undercrunk.
