FIMBULVETR - March 25th [22 Mar 2011|12:26pm]
Fimbulvetr is unique in Scotland, and possibly the rest of the UK, in that we play the very best music from the wide spectrum of ambient, drone, electronica, noise, doom, folk, post-rock and anything that's dark & down-tempo. We're always looking for new music to play so let us know if you've heard anything exciting or you're making this kind of music yourself.



You can get a taste of our playlist by downloading this MP3 of a set performed by Fimbulvetr DJs on Fresh Air FM, Edinburgh's University radio station.

Tracklist:

01 - Coil - Are You Shivering?
02 - Northaunt - Shadows Over The Barren Land
03 - Deutsch Nepal - Of Parasites And Disguises
04 - Swans - How They Suffer
05 - Beth Gibbons & Rustin Man - Show
06 - Current 93 - The Bloodbells Chime
07 - Sigur Ros - Di Do

We are now based in The Hide, the basement bar of The Argyle Bar on Argyle Place. Here is a map to the venue. Fimbulvetr is still FREE to enter. All we ask is that you consider making a donation to help with our expenses. We're also now open from 8pm so you can come along for a few drinks before heading on into the night...

We also have a Facebook page where you crazy kids and your social networking can keep up to date with our activities.

FIMBULVETR - November 26th [24 Nov 2010|08:22pm]
We're heading rapidly to Novembulvetr so why not head a long and celebrate the slow, wind-blown death of the year with some dark, down-tempo sounds in our dingy basement!

Don't forget that the next Fimbulvetr is this weekend and it's on a SATURDAY for a change. We'll also be starting from 6pm so head along for the best dark, downtempo sounds there are...


We have a Facebook event page and group for those who may prefer certain other social media providers.

Hope to see you there!

A white cottage, by a stream [09 Feb 2010|07:51pm]
I was stood in the river, fishing for plates with my trousers rolled up to the knee, when my friend said that a storm was coming and we had to go back to the house. I could hear the lightning in the distance so we walked up the path to the old cottage. We went in the back door so we didn't let out the people who locked were in the upstairs room but we could hear them screaming and banging on the floor so my friend opened it a crack to see what was wrong. As he did, Frankenstein's monster pushed an arm through, grabbed him by the neck and pulled him in. I stood there, frozen, but managed to float through to the kitchen.

When I got there, I could see through the window that the storm had passed and the sun was shining. I knew everything would be OK.

FIMBULVETR - 17th December [17 Dec 2009|09:59pm]
CHRIMBLEVETR COMES! Yep, the last Fimbulvetr of 2009 is heralded by ICY WINDS and DRIVING SNOWS so make your well-insulated way to the cosy basement of the Hide Bar for the usual mix of dark, down-tempo goodness!


For those of you who can't make it, we will be back on the 29th January!

FIMBULVETR - November, 2009 [27 Nov 2009|03:30pm]

A last-minute reminder that Fimbulvetr, what we think is the best clubnight in the UK for all that's dark & downtempo, is on tonight. The more eagle-eyed of you may notice that OMG we're back to having dates booked in advance, which is pretty amazing. Hopefully this means we can be a bit more organised in 2010.

RADIO PESTILENTIA - A podcast of metal & experimental noises [24 Nov 2009|09:08pm]
I've not spammed this on LJ, I think, so here we are. I spend a small amount of time making continuous mixes for myself to listen to on the way into work - various collections of things I happen to be listening to at the time - and have decided to try and make this a more official thing that other folks can enjoy if they like.

The playlist will tend towards the more underground BM/noise/doom/ambient/drone arena so people who enjoy that kind of thing might get more out of it.

The previous podcasts and more details can be found on the podcast's page.

You can, apparently, subscribe to the podcast through iTunes via the following link: itpc://radiopestilentia.podOmatic.com/rss2.xml

Stuffs [16 Nov 2009|06:14pm]
A recent clear-out has led to some items being marked as 'no longer required' so they're on offer to interested parties.

First is a blue coffee/lounge table, 78cm (l) X 33cm (w) x 39cm (h), shown in the photo below. It's in decent nick - there's a handful of small scuffs but they just add to the natural wood texture (the flash shot doesn't really do it justice) - and has a really useful lower shelf.


After that is a Marshall Valvestate 8010 10 watt guitar amplifier, perfect from practicing or a learner.


It's not been used for a while but still works apart from a slight crackle on the Master Volume knob that's only really noticeable at lower volumes. Here are some reviews of the equipment.

Both items are free to good homes, pick-up from central Edinburgh. Give me a shout or get in touch through whitenoise AT inbox.com.

Guitar for sale [22 Oct 2009|09:35pm]
Wotcher.

I'm looking to get rid of a Hohner 6-string acoustic guitar. It's in decent nick but could do with a dust and tuning. It's been sat here in the corner for years now and could do with a more loving home. It'd be superb for someone looking to learn the guitar or just for noodling about at home.

£10 to you, squire.

Comment if you're interested.

FIMBULVETR - 4th September [02 Sep 2009|07:18pm]
Yes! Fimbulvetr is back on the 4th September in our new venue.


We'll have the usual mix of the best in dark, down-tempo sounds so drop in and chill out.

The Argyle Bar is on Argyle Place, just off the Meadows. Here is a link to the venue: http://www.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&client=firefox-a&q=the+argyle+bar&near=Edinburgh&dtab=5

We will NOT be on Argyle Street, as noted in error on some previous advertisements.

As this is the first date in a new venue, it would be really great if people can come out to show support. Don't forget that we are STILL not charging an entry fee (although donations are welcome) so do pop by if you can.

And, yes, I am just copying this from my last entry...*ahem*

Hard-Fi Dancefloor Upsetters! [25 Aug 2009|07:50pm]
Good times a-coming over the next few weeks!

Not only is Friday the final night of Kabarett's Kleine Komedie, which you should've been going to if you haven't, but it's also when Transmit:Volt hits town!


Yep, Fimbulvetr's slightly more with-it sister club takes a hefty dose of Red Bull and gets her dancing clogs on to take advantage of a late Festival licence and a gaggle of variably competent DJs, making shapes around her handbag as analogies are stretched to breaking point!

We'll be open from 23:00 in the evening with a definite licence until 03:00, 05:00 if the audience is 'avin it large enough. There'll no doubt be a fairly random mix of everything that comes under the underground dance umbrella (techno, ragga, glitch, elektro, dubstep, DnB, whatevs) but there'll also be a late bar on a Friday night at the end of the Festival, possibly more of a draw for some...
