Glasgow music venue BLOC+ celebrates its 20th anniversary with release of a book… BOOC+.

The Bath Street has seen the likes of Frightened Rabbit, Twin Atlantic, Twilight Sad, Admiral Fallow and Young Fathers among many more grace its stage – although some will know it for an online “rammy” with UKIP, now known as ‘Faragegate’.

BOOC+, published on December 19th, is an anthology of pictures, posters and recipes detailing the bar’s two decades with testimonials from bands such as Frightened Rabbit, Rolo Tomassi and Clutch.

Established by one of the 1990s rave scene pioneers, John Burns, BLOC+ grew from a regular pub to award-winning restaurant and music venue over the years, its reputation enhanced by its innovative food choices (such as burgers in day-glo MD2020 blue sauce, and Buckfast ice-cream).

Accompanying the BLOC BOOC is a 10-track album, a free-to-download reminder of the venue’s status as a record label and featuring some of the acts who have played the venue over the years, including Adam Stafford, Cutty’s Gym, Vasa, Verse Metrics, Chris Devotion & The Expectations and Thula Borah.
