The Phantom Band Report Abuse
Checkmate Savage is hands-down the best Scottish album of all time, and The Wants is as good. For this band not to be HUGE is absolutely criminal.

Idlewild Report Abuse
I have no idea why this band isn't in the Top 10 of all Scottish bands. Warnings & Promises is a fantastic album, as is The Remote Part.

Seriously underrated, 100 Broken Windows and The Remote Part are phenomenal. Its shameful some of the bands that are above these.

Lone Pigeon Report Abuse
AKA Gordon Anderson. Hugely underrated song writer. He writes with his heart, as it should be. Each song is like a glimpse into his soul. Reminiscent of Lennon or Bowie. Ignore this man at your pearl
