Tartan Texans -The Hazey Janes

A series on Scottish acts who have (in my opinion) been influenced, however tenuously, by Americana/Alt Country/call it what you will.

After some Edinburgh bands (The Felsons, The Sunshine Delay) and some Glasgow bands (Cosmic Rough Riders, Freeloader) now it is the turn of Dundee with The Hazey Janes.
From their 2006 album Hotel Radio on Measured Records  here are two fine tracks

The Hazey Janes are Andrew Mitchell (guitar and vocals), Liam Brennan (drums),Alice Marra (vocals and keyboards) and Matthew Marra (bass)
Alice and Matthew's dad was the late, great Michael Marra and the Hazey Janes collaborated with him in 2012 to produce the 2012 EP Houseroom.


  1. not enough Dundee bands on certain blogs

  2. I would put an Aberdeen band on if I could find one!
