SATURDAY’S SCOTTISH SONG : #100 : FIZZBOMBS

As featured in the CD86 series back in June 2015:-

The Fizzbombs were a short-lived four piece from Edinburgh consisting of Katy McCullars (lead vocal), Margarita Vasquez-Ponte (guitar/vocals), Angus McPake (drums) and Ann Donald (bass). This fabulous little number was released as a single on Nardonik Records in 1987:-

mp3 : The Fizzbombs – Sign On The Line

It was the band’s only release with that line-up. They would release an EP in 1988 by which time Katy had moved on and Margarita was on lead vocal duties after which Fizzbombs were no more.

However, Margarita was a mainstay in other Edinburgh-based indie bands of the time, most notably Rote Kapelle and Jesse Garon & The Desperadoes (of which Angus was also a member), the latter having a career that saw eight singles/EPs and two LPs between 1986 and 1990 without ever coming close to any commercial success. Katy, as mentioned a few weeks back, would be part of The Secret Goldfish and Fake Eyelashes among many other great contributions to the indie scene in Scotland.
