NOMINATED - SCOTTISH ALBUM OF THE YEAR -

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-17702509

Currently being championed by the BBC, this is the sparkling debut album from a young rock band with distinct Afro-Scottish influences – unsurprising given that they come from Edinburgh and their lead-guitarist was taught to play by his counterpart in the legendary Bhundu Boys.

On the day of release the album reached an amazing Number 24 in the itunes ‘Alternative’ charts and the controversial video for ‘Two Bridges’ is now racking up thousands of plays on Youtube.

Using a grant from ‘Creative Scotland’, the album was recorded at Chem 19 with award-winning producer Paul Savage at the controls, then mastered by Noel Summerville – previously known for his work with The Clash, The White Stripes and the Bhundu Boys.

The band’s curious moniker was derived from the title of a 1956 feature film set in an Indian railway town – whilst the label name is the result of a deranged axeman attacking one of their gigs.

Ever generous, the lads give away ‘train tickets’ at every show – each one featuring quirky artwork by band members or their hardcore fans (now known as ‘The Queensferry Contingent’).

“The resulting mix was utterly endearing and flawlessly executed by a young band so obviously happy just be playing together. Not only refreshing to hear but a joy to watch.” The Herald

“Afro-beat somersaults, duelling guitar solos and swaggering, tumbling drums… these guys have tunes and they aren’t afraid to use them. Be afraid!” Artrocker

“Dazzlingly good… this country will surely produce few better in 2011.” The List
