I’ll begin by repeating the opening of a post from September 2017:-

I’ve been very fortunate in the near eleven years that this and the predecessor blog have been functioning to have been on the receiving end of a number of wonderful pieces of correspondence, most often by email but occasionally by post.

An example of the latter was when reader Phil Hogarth sent me over 3 x CDs, containing a total of 55 songs, that he thought I’d find entertaining. The songs were, for the most part, from Scottish singers and bands, some of whom I’d heard of but the majority of which were new to me. Those CDs arrived in 2009 or 2010 and I recall thinking to myself at the time that I must get round to posting a bundle of the better songs. But for one reason or another, I never got round to it….so what I’m going to do is fish out individual songs for inclusion in this series as and when the singer or band’s turn comes up.

It’s time again:-

mp3 : Hollow Horse – Forget The Girl

I’ve been able to establish that it’s the opening track of an album called Beggarstown, released in 2005,  Hollow Horse are a Glasgow quartet, comprising Kenny Little, David Wotherspoon, Ian Stevenson and Kevin Devlin, which formed in 2001 One reviewer has said of them “Sort of Crowded House meets Paul Weller with a twist of Roy Orbison and a subtle hint of Elvis Costello.”

There’s been three albums and more can be gleamed from here.



  1. Hello, I am Kenny Little from Hollow Horse. I just wanted to thank you so much for featuring our track, ‘Forget The Girl’, that is really so very kind of you and we deeply appreciate you support for our music. We are still currently working on our fourth release – to be called, ‘ The World Is Full Of Idiots’ – progress is slow but we are making headway with the work and are planning a double ‘B’ side single from it to be released soon. The two songs featured are ‘O After L, V Before E’ and ‘ I’m Building A Scarecrow’. I also personally want to thank Phil here for his continued sterling support of the band – and Rachel ( above) for going to the trouble to seek out our albums and for buying them. How kind is that ? Thank you both so very much !
    I wish you all the very best.
    Greetings to you from sunny Scotland – I lied, it rains here mostly.
    Hoots mon the noo
