    Default Scottish Bands part 1

    For a wee country of only 5 million or so, Scotland is pretty well represented at Coachella with 3 bands on the lineup. In honor of this, how about a couple of polls about your favorite Scottish bands. You can vote for multiple bands.

    Yup, Camera Obscura just lost out to the "10 choices per poll" rule.

    Why did I think The Fratellis were Italian?
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Mogwai would have gotten my vote if they were listed, although it appears as though there will be another poll, presumably with bands starting with letters at the end of the alphabet.

    Oh, dear.... you'll have to brush up on your geography darlin, Thin Lizzy are NOT SCOTTISH, Phil Lynott was a Paddy born and bred in Dublin. Plus, Snow Patrol have slightly hybrid heritage (more paddies),

    as for the idiot who thinks that U2 are Scottish..... I weep for mankind.

    You'll have to brush up on your reading, darling.


    Someone posted that we can claim Placebo, AC/DC etc. because of their Scottish members.
    By that rationale, Talking Heads (Byrne born in Dumbarton), The KLF (Bill Drummond) and The Faces (Rod Stewart) all count by having Scots members.

    Thin Lizzy had Scotsman Brian Robertson, Snow Patrol has Tom Simpson and Colin Hay, lead singer from Men At Work was born in Ayrshire.
