Was never really in to the band, but remember the song from my time at Uni. Great version.

Only found out a few years ago that they were a Scottish band, from Bellshill. Bellshil is not a glamorous location and yet has produced The Soup Dragons, Teenage Fanclub, some of the members of Mogwai and, sadly, Sheena Easton. To be fair, Sheena was the first from this list to come out of Bellshill so it’s been improvement ever since. I’ll spare Sheena any more criticism and not talk about The Big Day festival in Glasgow, in 1990, when… oops.

Anyway, congratulations to The Cousins, as our chums across the pond are referred to in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, on their big day. Have a groove with the Soup Dragons.
