SATURDAY'S SCOTTISH SINGLE (Part 36)
A four-piece outfit originally from the town of Stonehaven which is just a couple of train stops south of Aberdeen in the north-east of Scotland.
I saw Copy Haho as a support act at King Tut's a few years ago and was impressed enough to buy a bit of vinyl on the night. Turns out it was their debut 7" limited run of 500 which came out in 2006. Since then I've picked up a further two singles that were released in 2008 and 2009. In the end, I thought it best to feature the debut as it is probably the most difficult to track down:-
mp3 : Copy Haho - Bookshelf
mp3 : Copy Haho - Desert Belle
Desert Belle is the track which I thinks will hold most appeal. Very reminiscent musically of The Wild Swans early material it bounds along quite splendidly and makes for a fine three minutes of music.
The band are still active and released their well-received self-titled debut LP in 2011.
Next up....Danny Wilson.
