The Hellfire Club originally formed in the 1990s and includes members from a number
of Glasgow’s seminal indie groups such as Big Burd, Kite Monster and The Wow Kafe.

also hosted their own Americana themed night at the Griffin bar in Glasgow. Guest
performers at this event have included Monica Queen, Roy Møller, Warren McIntyre and
Stevie Jackson.

comprising Bob Anderson on drums, Rab Armour on guitars and vocals, Helen Brown on
