Scotland has had its share of recent music stars, from Belle and Sebastian to KT Tunstall and now a band from the east end of Glasgow is making a splash worldwide. Glasvegas is that band, and with the release of their second full-length album in December, they have proven themselves to be more than just a flash in the pan. They might very well be a lasting name in British rock.
Last year, Glasvegas won the NME Philip Hall Radar Award, for the most promising band in the UK. For a rock mecca like Britain, that is no small honor. Rather than run on and on about the band and their influences, and all that regular music review stuff, I thought I’d just let you listen to them.
First, here’s “Geraldine”, which reached #1 in Scotland charts, and #16 in the UK.
and a live version of “Daddy’s Gone”, which hit #2 in Scotland.
