What are peoples opinion on these guys.

Got a few of their songs on iTunes before they got taken down and have to say I'm quite liking them.

Does anyone know where I can get more of their stuff. I don't think they've released an album or anything yet though.

Yeah, I really like their style and have been listening to them a lot lately.

Another good new Glasgow band are 'We Are The Physics', definitely worth a listen.

I absolutely love them.
Just missed out on getting tickets for their two Glasgow dates in June but will definitely go and see them at T.
As with you, I've only got the iTunes stuff. Daddy's Gone and Go Sqaure Go being my favourites. Pretty good cover of The Ronettes as well.

Just started listening to them recently but I think they're brilliant. Disappointed that I miss all of their scottish gigs wen I'm on holiday though.

Have to say, the lyrics to 'Flowers and Football Tops' give me the shivers.

Does anyone know if it's about anyone in particular?

great band :agree:

'geraldine' is a great song but that new version is poor compared to the original if you can track that down on 'soulseek' etc i'd recommend it

flowers and fitba tops is about kriss donald

Not true. They have been touring with them for some of their gigs but aren't doing the Edinburgh one AFAIK.

The Blakes and The Teenagers are supporting The Wombats on Tuesday. :boo hoo:

I didn't Stuart. I'm not a huge big fan of the baby faced crack head.

Mon The Glasvegas.. If you like them you should listen to Jesus and Mary Chain too Stuart.. A great Scots band..

i've seen them afew times, a while back. Though they seemed more colourful/bouncy, and now from what i've heard, they're a bit darker. Less bouncy.
Still that song there's quite good.

At least that makes 2 of us. Having a very weak drummer doesn't help them at all

All good bands are founded on a tight drummer and good bass player. Everything else falls in around that.

Knickers... From the top of my head - Oasis - best stuff was done with a poor bassist and a shockingly bad drummer..
