Viva Glasvegas!

I love bands out of Scotland, especially one's who can't, or won't, hide their deliciously undecipherable Scottish accents (think The Proclaimers, Paolo Nutini, The Fratelis).

Another one who are set to release their self-titled debut, are Glaswegians, Glasvegas.

The three guys and a girl sound like what would happen if The Waterboys and Jesus and Mary Chain met Ronnie Spector- a pretty cool hybrid.

And Glasvegas take on ripped-from-the headlines subjects (Khriss Donald on "Flowers and Football Tops") and self-assessing themes, all in loud, feedback-drenched anthems.

Check out my good friend Jools (wishing here) and the band from a recent episode.
