SATURDAY’S SCOTTISH SINGLE (Parts 66-68)

In which I finally catch up with all the entries in this long-running series……

R-461007-1335398434

(66) Josef K – Chance Meeting b/w Pictures : Postcard Records 7″ (1981)

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you David Weddell, Malcolm Ross, Paul Haig and Ronnie Torrance.  Collectively known as Josef K.  All you need to know can be found in here. It’s a fantastic website.

R-41134-1301460792

(67) The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu – Whitney Joins The J.A.Ms : KLF Communications 12″ (1987)

OK. The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu are not completely Scottish. But one half of them is and as far as I’m concerned that’s good enough for this 1987 one sided single to be included in this long-running alphabetical series. Plenty more to come before we reach Zoey Van Goey ………..  Happy to accept that this track has not dated all that well but also willing to argue that it was ground-breaking in its day.

(68) Kid Canaveral – Couldn’t Dance b/w Teenage Fanclub Song : Straight To Video Records (2008)

Kid Canaveral are an alternative pop group based in Edinburgh, and the indiepop poster children of the Fence Records roster. The band – David MacGregor (Guitars & Voice), Kate Lazda (Guitars & Voice), Rose McConnachie (Bass Guitar & Voice) and Scott McMaster (Drumkit) – formed in St Andrews, and after releasing their debut 7″ single ‘Smash Hits’ on their own label Straight to Video Records in 2007, they self-released a further 4 singles, an EP and their debut album Shouting at Wildlife, before signing to Fence Records in 2011.

Tune in next week for Part 69.

  1. holy cow! first time I have heard this since 1987 – no doubt due to the legal kerfuffle. As a not very good dj in the mid 80’s I used to love this along with Madonna’s holiday and set me on fire by willie colon. Thanks
