"Chris Helme Nice n Sleazy"

Blue Nova
Nice And Sleazy
Chris Helme with Blue Nova

As guitars pierce the eardrums,drums batter the chest and the bass rattles the cranium,lead singer, Calum Stewart swings his guitar in the air, his
body convulsing as if wired to the mains. Then, just as the set reaches feverish levels, he slams his guitar to the ground
leaving his band to splice ear splitting feedback with Oasis-esque guitar signatures to the death.It's an amazing end to the set. Rewid Half an hour
and as the band walk on stage nodding politely, it's clear the glasgow crowd are unaware of the noise-pop this glasgow foursome will unleash tonight.
" If I Knew You Were Coming.." is a bass-y tub thumber with a throaty howl, " Night Of Lust" is pure unabashed guitar pop and "Johnny Rebel" is
punk had it been invented by Mogwai. But it's on set closer "My Eyes Are Squinty" where Blue Nova shine brightest. It's an epic 10minute behemoth
and is undoubtedly their finest track. Check it out! - Jamie Crossan

Blue Nova started in February 2009 when Rab Fulton alongside his cousin Johnny McIver decided to go into the local Studio for a jam with local drummer, Fraggie

It was originally looked at as a mess about. They were talking about enlisting a singer from a number of local bands - however after a heavy night, a relatively inexperienced Calum was brought in to cover vocal duties. Although at first, the tunes took a bit of time to get organised the band started gigging within 2 months. In the studio there was a incredibly natural atmosphere.

Following support slots with Texan band The Strange Boys, Ex Seahorses singer Chris Helme and Local band Jacob Yates, the band have played a couple of sell out shows amongst a host of other packed gigs and have received nothing but positive reviews from live audiences throughout the last year.

We have so far recorded two 3 track demos and will be recording our third in the next few weeks.

Blue Nova are a passionate band who have been noted for their electric live gigs, we are trying to create an alternative rock sound that is big on dynamics and melody. We are creative and alongside Rab's prolific writing skills, the band have no where to go but up. We live for music and we love what we do.

It sounds far too close to a cliché, but we are all about the music and we are not capable of doing anything else.
