King Tut’s is where Alan McGhee saw Oasis for the first time, signing them there and then. This is only part of the rich history of the iconic Glasgow venue though, and if you are to ask around King Tut’s is found to be a favourite of both fans and bands alike.

The bar, when you walk in past the famous sign, is a cosy affair that gives off that great rock venue vibe, you can nearly feel the dirt getting under your fingernails and it's one of those places where you wish the smoking ban wasn’t around so you could destroy your lungs enjoying the gloomy atmosphere as the smoke hangs round the saloon lights like it used to when I first came here some four years ago. The bar staff are always friendly and with the “Drop your CDs” letterbox in the corner you really feel you’re in the beating heart of this city’s music scene.

Upstairs the venue is small and sweaty, and always enthralling no matter how crap the band playing may be. This really is the place to be if you like to see the band’s face up close and personal and probably one of the finest venues in the British Isles.
