    A fair amount of guff above, I think we've underperformed as a nation, compare us to London or Liverpool or Manchester and its a massacre. Sensational Alex Harvey were great tbf and obvious class like procs primal scream but nothing earth shattering. Our intentions and literature make it not matter though
    When you consider what a backwater Scotland was in the post-war years it's hardly surprising that London, Liverpool, Manchester and even Birmingham had huge musical movements in the 50s and 60s while we had Kenneth McKellar and Lulu. Anybody who wanted to do anything had to move south and their Scottishness was diluted or even ignored. Guys like Jack Bruce and John Martyn were huge names in London in the early 60s but they weren't lauded as great Scottish musicians, just great musicians. Even now people like Jesse Rae are more appreciated around the world than in their own country. The Fire Engines are still influencing musicians 40 years after their last album. I think we've produced a lot of great musicians and great music. It's just that most people haven't heard it all.

    Jesus and Mary Chain

    Think they may have all been mentioned before but they would be my personal favourites. Also The Proclaimers are massively underrated by a lot of people. They seem to have been dismissed as almost a novelty act by some but they are anything but.

    First three albums were tremendous, only a shedload of the wally dugs stopped them from being more productive. Sung in Scottish also which should ban half of the above from the list.

    Tranquillizer is a classic.

    I used to know Andrew the singer through work when he was temping to get some extra cash after Geneva had split. Nicest guy you could meet but put him on a 5s pitch and he was a crazed lunatic, don't think there was a single game where ne never got into a scrap!

    Don't think The Scars have been mentioned, I was never a big fan but knew Paul and John at at school. Very influential band.

    The View not make the cut?

    Dogs Die In Hot Cars...not thought about them for a long time. Good album they had, dunno if they had more than one though. Iím going to listen to them today 👍

    Men at Work - Who can it be now? is a great song. Play it all the time.

    The View was mentioned earlier in the thread, I was just trying to think of ones not been mentioned yet, there's so many more too like the Rising Souls, singer has a brilliant voice, he's from Penicuik but I think they've split now, seen them in LA Belle Angele a couple of years ago.

    A couple of bands from the 90s that made cracking first albums and pretty dreadful follow-ups - The Big Dish and The River Detectives.

    A few tenuous connections there. Couldnt claim Ultavox were Scottish just because Mijure joined, as well claiming Thin Lizzy. Slik, however, no mention. If the Waterboys are in then Another Pretty Face are missing, Scott's Edinburgh Band. The Fire Engines missing off the Postcard set. Mowgli and the Doughnuts, Bilbo Baggins had no hits but were around for ages. M&TD had a get together on the death of a member a couple of years back. The Poets had hits in the 60s. Lonnie Donnegan kicked it all off. Not sure I saw (Meet) Danny Wilson in the list or Gary Clark as himself or King L.. Apart from a few solo, almost novelty hits, Brian (BA) Robertson has eked out a huge career as a songwriter.

    Was it the Shop Assistants who did the original, or was theirs the cover? Quality Edinburgh band.

    Not forgetting The Nature Boys - "they look like the Clash, but sound bloody terrible" I think the lyrics were.

    This thread just seems like an exercise in naming the most obscure band you can think off.

    United we stand here....
