A bar in north-east Fife is hosting a night of live music next month. Legends in Anstruther welcomes Birmingham band Sunshine Frisbee Laserbeam with support from Kirkcaldy’s Toy Hospital, and Dundee/Fife indie rockers Got Get Need.

The gig on Monday, August 28 was moved to the East Neuk venue after the closure of Rad Apples in Dundee - and it’s a rare chance to see a touring band in the area.

Formed in 2013, Sunshine Frisbee Laserbeam - everyone’s favourite weird-on-purpose rock band - are gigging across the UK to promote their new album 'Mortuary Pantomime'. Their line-up includes Junior Laidley who is also in cult indie-rock band, Johnny Foreigner.

Toy Hospital are a rock/shoegaze/emo band based in Kirkcaldy. The band started out in the bedroom of frontman Martyn Rollo Rose, where he recorded debut album Changed Priorities Ahead on his own during lockdown. For their debut gig in 2021, Martyn called upon drummer Stephen McKie (Our Smallest Adventures) and bassist Ed Ritchie (Dog On A Swing).

Got Get Need formed in early 2020, and made their live debut at the 2022 Promfest at Silverburn. Released this year, their debut EP Filtered Smiles features three melodic, hook driven anthems.
