Band Pimping: Glasvegas (Originally published November 23, 2009)


This band is from Scotland.  They’re pretty big in the UK but it hasn’t happened here in the states yet.  They’ve got a groovy ’60s pop style, incorporating Phil Spector (pre-murder) walls of sound, a dash of surf guitar, among many other cool retro things.  This song even uses the line “liar liar, pants on fire.”  How can you go wrong with that?  Plus James Allan, their singer and guitarist, looks like Joe Strummer, which is usually a springboard to success.  So go ahead and check them out.
