1st CLASS SINGLES FROM SCOTLAND
I know that most of the stuff I rave on about tends to be from years and indeed decades ago. But how about recalling some cracking singles by Scottish singers or bands from more recent times. In no particular order of preference
mp3 : Paul Haig - Trip Out The Rider (Radio Mix)
The original version can be found on the 2009 LP Relive but a series of mixes, including one by Fred Deakin of Lemon Jelly were put out as a limited edition 7" single or download in November 2010. Long-awaited new material from Paul Haig is expected sometime soom.
mp3 : Meursault - A Few Kind Words
Back in 2009, Meursault released 2 x 7" singles. One was William Henry Miller Pt1/The Dirt & The Roots and the other was William Henry Miller Pt2/A Few Kind Words. The track featured is an excellent example of what has been described as folktronica.....i.e. beardy music you can dance to in clubs. Again, much anticipated new material should be with us in 2012.
mp3 : The Vaselines - Sex With An X
From 2010. The first 45 from Eugene and Frances in 19 years. The wait was well worth it.
