Keep Scotland Clean


Clean George IV are a scottish band that, I must be honest, I don't know a huge amount about.

However, they have so far issued one very good single, entitled 'First Blast Of The Trumpet Against The Monstrous Regiment Of Women.' This is not enocuraging wind instrument related misogyny, but is the title of John Knox's infamous pamphlet about women. As to the b-side, I don't know when the great Highland Crack epidemic was, though Scotland has had its problems with drugs like most countries in the majority and minority worlds.

This is their first single, available on 7" from HMV, and other stores (mine came from Fopp) and when you buy it, you also get to download the tracks for free (if only more bands did this, for those of us who like to have a physical product and like that to be vinyl. As well as owning iPods and not being able to afford USB turntables.)

Only knew the album version of the Delgados song, so thanks a bunch for this.

I'll try and track down the new single you've posted, but I much prefer the b-side. It wasn't that the a-side was rubbish mind you.

Glad you liked Clean George IV, like I say, check HMV.

The Delgados track is from a Chemikal Underground compilation released four years ago called 'Out Of Our Heads On Skelp.' In all seriousness, it is my favourite track of the decade.
