Tijuana Bible to preach dirty blues-rock gospel in the Highlands

Written byWhat's On Inverness

Tijuana Bibles
Tijuana Bibles - this isn't a picture of the band; we highly doubt that they're actually cartoon skulls.

Do you like sludgy blues rock? Of course you do – who doesn't? And, in the first of 2015's Netsounds/2010 Management collaborations, you'll be able to enjoy it in Inverness as the Tijuana Bibles come to town.

The Kyuss-esque (Kyuss-ian? Kyuss-a-like? Look, they sound like Kyuss which is definitely a good thing) four piece will be bringing their unique brand of grungy riffage to Mad Hatters on Thursday 26th February, before hopping on the bus/train/horse-led coach up to Caithness to rock out the Blackstairs Lounge in Wick on Friday 27th February and the Y-Not Bar and Grill in Thurso on Saturday 28th February.

The early notice should give us all plenty of time to come up with excuses to our bosses about how we've all come down with flu. [Nice bloody try - Ed]

Born and bred in Glasgow, but with more in common with the swampy blues of Louisiana, Tijuana Bibles are a mix of grungy sludge-based riffs and groove-laden rhythms.

In the last year, the group have already played the likes of T In The Park, Wickerman Festival and Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival.

Tijuana Bibles released new single "Crucifixion" off the back of their recent free download "Toledo", which saw them win support from the likes of NME and Q Magazine.

Tickets are £6 and available online from and will shortly be available in person from Eden Court’s Box Office.

Here's "Crucifixion" for you to have a blast on. Let us know what you think!
