Dundee band Stoor

Dundee quartet Stoor are taking part in the 20th anniversary Jockrock which takes place in Glasgow on October 20.

Scottish’s longest-running indie music website Jockrock.org celebrates two decades since it crept onto the web (and into print) with a show.

Ballboy, Mitchell Museum, Stoor and David MacGregor (of Kid Canaveral) will perform at Stereo.

It’s an early gig, doors at 7pm, with the throng able to retire across the road for DJs including Jim Gellatly spinning the finest moments in Scottish indie rock from the past 20 years until the wee sma’ hours.

The Jockrock indie music website appeared on the web sometime around late 1996 – the exact date unknown – initially as a collection of reviews shared through the nascent internet, compiled into a short-lived paper fanzine and followed by a radio show  before adding on its notorious but vital forum and finally coming to rest at its domain jockrock.org.

As for Stoor, they formed from the fumes of the original West Port bar in Dundee and distilled from earlier Dundee punk/New Wave bands, have been a presence on the Scottish music scene since the 1990s.

The nuclear core of the band (Scott Mckinlay, drums; Stef Murray, bass and vocals; Ross Matheson, guitar) fused over their love of punk, film and TV themes and the Kinks to name but three influences.

Over the years other members have come and gone with the present fourth member being Davie Youngblood on guitar.
