Anyone living in the West of Scotland will be familiar with Buckfast Tonic Wine aka Buckie originally brewed by the monks from the palatial Abbey in Buckfastleigh in Devon but now brewed, I believe, in an industrial estate in France.
About 95% of consumption takes place in Weegie land. It is extremely high in caffeine and has the desired result of getting tipplers off their faces and fairly violent very quickly.
A blight on society
Regular commentator George and I visited the Abbey a few years back and on inquiring about purchasing a bottle of Buckie witnessed the Monk chappie produce a bottle from underneath the counter.I can't remember if we got it in a plain brown bag but you get the picture.
This background information is merely to emphasis the strangeness of a band from Washington DC waxing lyrical about consuming Buckie in Govanhill!
Purchased in St Andrews - the CD Living with the Living - not the Buckie!
