SATURDAY’S SCOTTISH SONG : #65 : DANANANANDAYKROYD

Sometimes a band has such an annoying and stupid name that I just switch off immediately. As I did throughout the career of this lot. From wiki:-

Dananananaykroyd was a six-piece, self-dubbed ‘Fight Pop’ band formed in 2006 in Glasgow, Scotland. Their name is a play on the name of Canadian actor Dan Aykroyd. They announced via Facebook and Twitter on 29 September 2011 that they would be disbanding after one farewell tour.

Wiki also informs there were two albums – Hey Everyone! (2009) and There Is A Way (2011) along with seven singles and an EP. I’ve one track of theirs, a single from the debut LP:-

mp3 : Dananananaykroyd – Black Wax

It’s fast, loud and shout-along catchy. The sort of thing that every late-aged teeenager at the time thinks will change the world although the rest of us will recognise it’s something we’ve all heard before. The late-aged teenager will inevitably find his/her tastes expand in years to come and while they will nowadays recall the band with some fondness they quickly accept there was a lot more and a lot better out there at the time.
