    I hope you slapped him round the head and played Lubricate Your Living Room.
    No but that's not a bad shout

    It's only right that B+S got a good mention, they've repeatedly given us things of beauty.

    As far as other bands go, I'm surprised, maybe it's an age thing, but no mention of Lloyd Cole and The Commotions.

    Some exquisite songs and the excuse to indulge in referencing all the French poetry you never actually read and all the classic 50s Hollywood films you'd never seen

    Growing up in the 80s they were a lifebelt

    Dont see Del Amitri mentioned and think they were a pretty good band. There are a fair few good ones though.

    Missed that, cheers.

    If we are stretching the rules to the utmost, then Talking Heads skoosh it for me, but in the spirit of things they can't really be considered Scottish.

    While I wouldn't put them up as contenders, Hipsway, Goodbye Mr Mackenzie and Love and Money were favourites in my younger days. Teenage Fanclub another.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned Deacon Blue, I thought they were incredibly popular, in a sort of 'you wouldn't admit it' way.

    GG, if ever there was a time to post "the video" it's now.


    Some of us are only lucky enough to play one instrument.

    To straddle strings and percussion is a gift.

    And you had a Hibs top on

    Ach...seeing as it's you guys, and just this once. There's others (lots of them) but this is acceptable, I think:

    Great stuff

    But we want the clapping - we know fine well you can play the violin

    FWIW I was an orchestral timpanist and de facto lead percussionist so I've spent many a piece waiting for that solitary moment when I struck the bloody triangle or clashed the cymbals

    Takes talent to provide the accompaniment

    Seen billy McKenzie on totp last week. What a genius, and party fears two may well be the best Scottish single of all time. I particularly liked beyond the sun released just before his untimely death nearly 20 years ago.

    I don't know about best band though - for sheer volume of brilliant music simple minds 77-84 is hard to beat.

    Primal Scream or the Cinematics, the OK Social Club were a cracking band till they split last year.

    Biffy Clyro. Puzzle and Only revolutions are unbelievably nine and seven years old respectively which is scary.

    The latter has some songs on it that will be remembered for decades to come.

    Simple minds, just because of their concert adverts and t-shirts when they played at Ibrox.

    Ah....Hamish...I see

    Saw them a few times back in the late 70s/early 80s, always very good.

    The Soup Dragons! You've made me dig out my vinyls from the attic and a rather fetching picture disc of Majestic Head in particular. Magic!
