The Gyres were a Scottish indie rock band formed in 1994 in Blantyre near Glasgow, consisting of Andy McLinden (vocals), Paul McLinden (guitar), Peter Lyons (guitar), Mark McGill (bass) and Paddy Flaherty (drums).
The Gyres played numerous gigs in the United Kingdom, Europe and Japan, supporting and touring with Cast, Oasis, Reef, Echobelly, Bon Jovi, and David Bowie. The band enjoyed limited success, and eventually disbanded after walking away from their independent record label, Sugar Records, whose funding had dried up. The remaining members renamed themselves Point Blank, and released an album called 50/50 at the start of the 2000s, then disbanded not long after the release of the album.
This was their third single. It reached #71 in the UK charts in 1997. My copy is from an Indie compilation from back in the day. It’s OK….better than Cast and Reef anyways.
