I feel I may be encroaching into Vinyl Villian territory with this post about 80's Scottish indie band Hipsway.
I'm sure JC could give you their history chapter and verse in his usual elegant style.
A certain on- line encyclopedia tells me they consisted of Grahame Skinner who I know has featured on the VV's pages in various guises, Johnny McElhone who went on to form Texas, Pim Jones and Harry Travers.
What I do know is that The Honeythief is a tremendous song.
Those of you of a Caledonian persuasion and a certain vintage (i.e. George, Drew, Scott and indeed JC) may also recognise Tinder from a McEwan's lager advert - the music being considerably better than the beer!
