SATURDAY’S SCOTTISH SINGLE (Parts 16-20)

Back on 8 October 2011, I started a series called ‘Saturday’s Scottish Single’.  The aim was to feature one 45 or CD single by a Scottish singer or band with the proviso that the 45 or CD single was in the collection. I had got to Part 60-something and as far as Kid Canaveral when the rug was pulled out from under TVV.

I’ll catch up soon enough by featuring 5 at a time from the archives..

  1. Cool! “From The Mission Bell” was one of only two Big Dish songs I didn’t have in my collection. Now I do! Thanks, TVV! 😀

  2. I remember seeing Bis shortly after ‘Kandy Pop’ was a hit. I went with some mates who were punks and who heckled the band all night following the guitarist’s claim after the second song that: “Yeah, this is PUNK ROCK!”

    Asking for trouble, if you ask me. They were as punk rock as Hello Kitty…

  3. I had one of the Big Country -fields of fire picture discs, shaped like, what I presume was, a map of scotland. It was a bugger to play on the turntable.
