SATURDAY'S SCOTTISH SINGLE (Part 33)
As written back in 2006 when this single appeared:-
Clean George IV make a kind of racket they like to call 'pop-rock'.
Originally from Edinburgh they have been together for around a year (in various guises/lineups), have already supported Babyshambles and Clor and count Bloc Party’s singer, Kele Okereke, and drummer, Matt Tong, among their fans, as well as a veritable legion of other indie players...
They comprise of mainman/flagship George McFall and various musicians stolen from other bands. They are equal parts Eno, Devo, Erasure and Country (Big).
It was one of the other bloggers who alerted me to this. Could very well have been Ed over at 17 Seconds. Saw it in a shop soon after and bought it.
Hugely misogynist title. Don't take it literally........
mp3 : Clean George IV - First Blast Of The Trumpet Against The Monstrous Regiment Of Woman
mp3 : Clean George IV - The Great Highland Crack Epidemic
Oh and thanks to said Ed from 17 Seconds for pointing out the files hadn't been loaded. Blame the heat.....
Next up......The Close Lobsters
