SATURDAY’S SCOTTISH SONG : #70 : DEAD HOPE

Dead Hope are a three-piece group from Glasgow.

They were initially brought to my attention by Basil Pieroni of Butcher Boy as he is good mates with one of the guys in the band who, many years ago, was also part of The Big Gun as featured previously in this series.

Back in August 2015, I was given a copy of a single by Dead Hope. I described it then as bringing back memories of that warm noisy fuzzbox sound that was very fashionable for a period back in the 80s while there’s a hint of the much missed Urusei Yatsura about them too.

I didn’t manage to ge along and see the band when they played some live shows to promote the single. I’m hoping they have some shows planned this year so that I can rectify things.
