I normally put the front cover of any single on display but have gone with the back of Beathag by The Blood Uncles just to show how unconventional a trio they were. Scottish Goth-Rock….with an emphasis on Rock.

Consisting of Big John Duncan (ex-Exploited), John Carmichael and Colin McGuire, their debut EP on a local indie label attracted the interest of Virgin Records. Their career consisted of three singles, including a frantic cover of a song by Prince, and one LP, none of which got near the charts. Big John would later be part of the live act that was Nirvana…..

The second of the Virgin singles. Here’s the b-side:-

Enjoy. But I’m not sure many of you will.
