Saying that Ballboy are a four-piece indie-band from Edinburgh just doesn’t do them justice.

They’ve been with us for more than 16 years now during which time they have recorded and released five albums and eight EPs/singles as well as recording a number of Peel Sessions back in the days as the famous DJ was a huge fan of their music.

I feel like being lazy today so I would simply ask you to have a look at their webpage if you want or need more info.  Just click here.

They are one of Scotland’s best kept secrets.  They haven’t released a proper studio album since 2008’s I Worked On The Ships but there have been some suggestions that new material is in the pipeline. I certainly hope so.

So many great songs to choose from today.  Given it is Independence Day over the pond, this seems appropriate.

It’s not a cover………..



  1. I’ve got a couple of albums and EPs, those song titles are just superb and the song slive up to the promise of the titles.
