SATURDAY’S SCOTTISH SONG : #55 : CLEAN GEORGE IV

As with last week’s song, I only have one single by the next act to come up in the alphabetical run-through of the singers and bands from Scotland on the songs held on my laptop, so apologies for the repeat posting.

This is a single dating from 2006; there was a follow-up the follwoing year after which things went quiet, but as a magazine article revealed back in 2011 when the debut LP appeared, there was a good reason, namely that ‘enigmatic Edinburgh citizen Clean George has busied himself with a classical music degree, a lawsuit from Kraftwerk and myriad projects since we last heard from him way back in 2007.’

Clean George IV is the name adopted by George McFall and since the debut album he’s released material as CGIV. He’s quirky but don’t let that put you off. Here’s the b-side of his debut single which reminds us that drug addiction is not confined to urban areas:-
