Description

Catchy, indie-pop tunes, dubby disco funk from Glasgow - in the vein of ESG and William Onyeabor. Tip!

Formed in Glasgow in 1981 when Charlie and Dot lived above a pub and discovered their downstairs neighbor, Carol, was a sensational singer. They quickly recruited Stewart on bass and Derek on drums and started gigging. Scotland in the early 80s had a live music scene where unsigned bands could gather a serious following and the band played every major city, helped by catchy, indie-pop tunes and Carol's explosive performances. The recorded their debut album 'Fighting To The Finish' all in a week in March 1982 and released it on cassette. 'Courage' was their first vinyl outing in the independent, cottage-industry spirit of the times, originally released on Sticky Music in late 1982.
For this first time vinyl reissue, there's a bonus track “Lost in the 20th Century” from 1982, previously available only on their debut cassette album.
