"Live review - Box 08"

"There are a lot of them on small stage and despite the lack of a sound check (you don’t even have to be a football fan to have your day ruined by the Scotland team) they show more than a bit of class. Kathryn Orr is petite and sweet and knows a melody when she meets one. There are quite a few of those here tonight. This is a band with a happy sound and a quirky edge to their well crafted tunes. "Little Yellow String" jumped about joyously in that vaguely camp way that French pop music used to do way back in the sixties. More up-tempo pleasures followed with "Mother’s Pride" and the little minx really gets into the swing of things turning into an undercover knife wielding desperate housewife. Dammit, I think I’m in love!" - Bluesbunny


"Glasgow 07 - Best of Unsigned Review"

"Compilations are curious things. They often try to keep everybody happy by including everything and anything. Featuring tracks by the some of the finest Glasgow's unsigned bands, this 11 track collection brings something fresh to our ears. Not that we are biased, of course but Glasgow musicians are making some of the finest music in the world these days. There are tracks from the Odeon Beat Club, the State Broadcasters, Shoegazers, the Ten to Five Project, Dresden, the Spirals, Journey Box, Are You Ever Happy?, Katie Sutherland, the Black Alley Screens and Beaches of the Proud. Let's take a run through the tracks on offer.

The Odeon Beat Club give us a tasteful piece of indie rock in "Trouble Ticket" to start things off powered by some impassioned vocals. Following on next is "South Pole Stag Night", a sharply observed song on macho sensibilities from the State Broadcasters. "Sail Out" from the Shoegazers is dreamy and atmospheric. The highlight of the album came with Ten to Five Projects' "Sun in my Eyes" – quirky and quintessentially British pop music that sounds like a summer song should sound. Altogether quite magical. Dresden up the tempo and shake the walls with "Ultimatum". Taking us further into the loud guitars and grunge territory are the Spirals with "So Dark". Returning us to a more peaceful existence are the classy Journey Box with the hypnotic "Words and Sounds". Are You Ever Happy presents us with the melancholic "This Morning". Exuding the kind of sweetness and charm that will take her far, Katie Sutherland manages to capture the Bluesbunny heart with "Anymore". In contrast, the Black Alley Screens launch a full power assault on the senses with "The Camera Never Lies" featuring some storming guitar work. Beaches of the Proud round off this compilation with the instrumental "Long Shadows in the Mirror".

The winner? That would be the Ten to Five Project with "Sun in my Eyes". Quite simply charming in its execution and intelligent in its content, this proved to be the track that the Bluesbunny returned to time and time again." - Independent review

Bio

The Ten to Five Project began its existence as a musical collaboration: an opportunity for musicians from all backgrounds and tastes to come together and make music.

It consisted of jazz pianists, saxophonists, opera singers, a cello player from the South African Youth Orchestra, a Greek guitarist with a passion for death metal and screaming

We thought ourselves oh so clever and arty.

Innovators perhaps.

But the dream died.

It quickly became apparent that putting metal heads and connoisseurs of the classics in a room with jazz stars and indie boys resulted in only one thing: noise. It wasnt arty. It wasnt innovative. It was just painful. So we packed up our array of eclectic instruments and our dreams of an Art Council grant and headed off into the sunset.

A few of us stuck together. New people came; old people left. We went through a phase of buying strange instruments from Ebay.

Two years and multiple personnel changes later the current six fell, unwittingly into each others laps. And that's where they'll stay until one of them punches or impregnates one of the others.
