underground // experimental // jazz // worldmusic // electronic

Beard magazine has been covering underground and cult music from Glasgow and beyond since 2003. Now young shavers Stewart and Neil, along with regular guests, bring you a shambolic but enthusiastic hour of beautiful, weird, funky and horrible sounds. Underground rock rubs up against free jazz, noise, world music, hip-hop, dubstep, folk and experimental music. Cult gems from days of yore hi-five the latest cutting edge sounds. We love weird and noisy shit, but we love pop too: there ain't no snobbery in these whiskers.
