Listing in alphabetical order

Bdy_PRTS
Originally a duo of Jenny Reeves of Strike the Colours and Jill O'Sullivan of Sparrow & the Workshop, they have now added drummer and electronics programmer Jonny Scott, who has played with a wide range of Scottish acts including Emma Pollock, Olympic Swimmers and The Unwinding Hours, and manager/guitarist Scott Paterson (formerly of Sons & Daughters) to their LIVE set-up. The results, as you can tell, are remarkable... As you would expect with such a heritage of world-class groups behind them. But Bdy_Prts are a very different, and rather more shiny, beast! Taking synths, electronica, 90's R'n'B, indie and even some folk touches, their sound miraculously transports you to future-pop dimension where hooks, melodies, beats and bleeps collide; and synchronized dance-moves, day-glo outfits are glittery ponchos are definitely the order of the day - they even dressed me in a 'space taco' for our customary group shot. I wasn't complaining though! Some of our on-air chat was a fairly surreal too...One of the stars of the recent Running UP That Hill the songs of Kate Bush show at True North Festival, their band show here will be an absolute party treat.

KATHRYN JOSEPH (SOLO)
Scottish Album of The Year (SAY) Winner 2015
Prior to her debut release, Kathryn Joseph was regarded one of Scotland's best-kept secrets; prodigiously talented and criminally underrated her voice possesses the other-worldly quality comparable to Ms Newsom and Björk; but she is by no means of an ilk. Better compared with Anhoni; she is an artist in every way; unique and soulful, and at the core a beautiful unnerving truth. The Album was captured predominantly live in just a week by Scottish music industry veteran Marcus Mackay at the diving bell lounge (Frightened Rabbit, Snow Patrol, Trembling Bells, Alasdair Roberts, Sparrow and the Workshop). Kathryn's on record, and sometime-live collaboration with Marcus on percussion and synth and Kathryn on her signature upright ships piano offers an unmissable, heart heavy and gut wrenching but understated performance. Those lucky enough to catch her at one of her rare performances are sure to be captivated, moved and perhaps a little disturbed.

"bruised yet beautiful" Nicola Meighan, THE HERALD

"he more you Listen, the better it gets. One of my favourites of this year, for sure Very, very special indeed" LAUREN LAVERNE BBC 6Music

"Genuine uniqueness" THE METRO

"Ten tracks of emotionally raw, meticulously crafted songs rep lete with naturalistic, gothic and intensely personal imagery" Bill Cummings, GODISINTHETVZINE

"10 tracks make for one of the most emotionally raw records written by a Scottish songwriter" Jonathon Rimmer, THE NATIONAL

Sacred Paws
After the successful sell out of their debut EP to Rock Action last year, the label announce the release of Sacred Paws’ full album early 2017. This double A side single features the first two tracks to be taken from that album. The band’s infectious high energy rhythms have gained fans such as Marc Riley on BBC6 Music. Sacred Paws are almost immediately infectious, a whirr of energy which blends high-life rhythms to skittish guitar lines, dervish drumming and sighing, over-lapping vocals. The Glasgow two piece - Rachel Aggs (also of Trash Kit and Shopping) on guitar, Eilidh Rodgers on drums – formed while members of much loved noise pop group Golden Grrrls. Quickly finding their own, quite distinct, identity, Sacred Paws have become cult fixtures in Glasgow. There's a charming, not-quite-finished feel to their music which only seems to enhance its personality, while the post-punk, poly-rhythmic approach to percussion leads the duo into effortlessly funky realms. New EP 'Six Songs' was out on March 16th via Rock Action, and it's a superb introduction. Each track is part-song/part-chant, with the delicately arranged, multi-layered vocals forming a nest of love, loss and intrigue.Recalling The Raincoats, The Slits' oft-overlooked second album or even the Dunedin set on Flying Nun, Sacred Paws have hit upon something very special indeed.This should appeal to anybody who likes their songs short and sweet with an uplifting feel of summery punk pop.

The Lovely Eggs
Following the release of their critically acclaimed album This is Our Nowhere last year and their sold-out tour in April, champions of the UK underground scene The Lovely Eggs hit the road again this Autumn for another round of sensational punk rock gigging. This time they alight in Newcastle, Halifax, Hull, Northampton, Oxford, London, Southampton, Bristol, Derby, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Manchester's Gorilla, to play their biggest headline gig to date.This Is Our Nowhere garnered an 8/10 review in NME and much support from BBC 6 Music, including two sessions for Marc Riley in 2015 alone, who made their most recent single 'Goofin Around (in Lancashire)' one of his top tracks for 2015. The 7" was released on limited edition and mega-collectible “fried-egg vinyl” on their own label Egg Records. The Lovely Eggs continue to cement their reputation as one of the most exciting, innovative and genuine bands of the Great British Underground scene and have been selling out venues across the country without the help of management, booking agent or record label support. With songs firmly set in the hum drum of everyday life, The Lovely Eggs turn normality on its head, squeezing it through their peculiar surreal mincing machine and blending it with fuzzed out guitar and crashing drums. For Holly and David being in a band is a way of life. And they approach it in a unique way laughing in the face of life's absurdities. They are a rallying point for anyone that sees life for what it is. A mess. A wonderful, car crash of experiences, greeting each new chance with a cheeky grin, a sneer and a big fuck you to the pricks.

"One of the country's most beloved underground bands. 8/10"- NME
“You won't hear another band like this anywhere between now and the the end of the millenium. The Lovely Eggs are just brilliant!”- Huw Stephens, Radio One

Massive 5* thanks to Bdy_PRTS, Katie Ailes, Kathryn Joseph, The Lovely Eggs & Sacred Paws for making our International Women's Day event in Aberdeen something rather special. Also thanks to everyone who came out and enjoyed the evening. Special shout out for Polly with the wonderful poster design, the The Tunnels & Don the engineer who was superb once again. This event would not have been possible without the support of Aberdeen City Council, to whom we are greatful. We believe this was a fantastic celebration of women in music and poetry and we will continue, as we have in the past to support genuinely talented and original female artists in the future. Lastly thanks to all the IMP crew. #BeBoldForChange

Pitchfork love Sacred Paws, this sums it up " Without ever hitting you over the head with saccharinity, “Everyday” evokes sunshine thanks to Aggs’ bright Afrobeat guitars and Rodgers’ bouncy drums. “Everyday” is so upbeat that its melancholy narrative might not be immediately evident: “I will always love you/I, I, I’ll be thinking of you” sings Rodgers with an air that is equal parts yearning and assured. It’s that combination, the acknowledgement that joy can still exist within troubling times, that allows “Everyday” to voice a deeper truth." we say positive and joyous music for troubled times....we need this http://pitchfork.com/reviews/tracks/18841-sacred-paws-everyday/

Massive thanks to Sean Wallace for the preview of this event in todays Evening Express, will try to put up the whole preview but thought this quote from Holly from The Lovely Eggs was SPOT ON "This event for International Women's Day is very important. Even more so in 2017 it is vital to stand up and be counted and celebrate the contribution that so many amazing women make to our world. DIY culture is empowering and gives everyone a chance to get up and have a go. Anyone can start their own band regardless of how well they can play, everyone can start their own label or record themselves. Its great to be able to think anything is possible and you don't need to wait around for stuff to happen. You can be proactive and do it yourself" We say "here here" just what IMP has been doing since 2003....DIY. Come along and enjoy this wonderful live band, there is no other band like them around.

If you havn't seen her lately, Kathryn Joseph has been playing a few new songs in her set, which will likely or very likely feature in LP No2 when it comes out. These new songs sound utterly fantastic and certainly as good as anything she has released to date (and possibly better). Come down early to see her. This show is two weeks tonight and we are mighty excited...Got your tickets yet? Follow the links and remember we have concessions available for this event. :) :)
