Description

This is a selection of our back catalogue from our formative years, recorded between 2000 and 2004.  The first six songs were recorded between September 2000 and January 2001 at Chamber Studio in Edinburgh by Jamie Watson, mainly over two weekends.  They feature Big Andy Laidlaw on lead vocals, Andy Pennycuick on harmonica and backing vocals, Cammy Sinclair on drums, Colin, Mike and Jay Sloan on horns, Papa Joe on bass, Barry Pinkerton on keys, Bill Sinclair and Scott McCafferty on guitars. 

The next six songs were recorded between 2002 and 2004 in a proto version of the Bomblab by Scott, over various weekends and rehearsals.  ‘Paranoid’, ‘You’re The Girl’ feature Big Andy Laidlaw on lead vocals, Andy P on backing vocals and harmonica, Murray Graham on backing vocals and guitar, Mark Bray on drums, Barry Pinkerton on keys, Papa Joe on bass, Colin, Mike and Jay Sloan on horns, and Scott on guitars.  ‘I’m So Happy’, ‘Yellow Pages’, ‘World Turned Upside Down’ and Beatriz featured a more recognizable line-up; Andy P and Murray on vocals, Matt Bartlett on keys, Colin, Mike and Jay on horns, Papa Joe on bass, Mark Bray on drums and Scott on guitar.

The live version of ‘Beatriz’ is recorded in July 2003 in Lochinver although this has been disputed by some ‘experts’, who believe it may have been recorded in Ullapool.
