Some Devotional Music
I'm getting in quick before that surfer of the zeitgeist and the man with his finger on the pulse Scott gets in.
Over the holiday period the Sunday Herald produced an article on the top 50 Scottish albums of 2014.
At number 40 or thereabouts is Break Out by Chris Devotion and the Expectations.
I no longer have the article but from memory there was comparison to an imaginary Top of the Pops from the late 70s featuring Squeeze, Costello and Springsteen and also a reference to The Replacements.
So well worth checking out I'm sure you'll agree and given that it can be picked up ridiculously cheaply it became the first CD in 2015 to pop through my letterbox.
No bells, no whistles and no nods to any passing fads. Just good old fashion rock 'n'roll.
Buy this record.
I think I can get away with posting this track given that it on the sampler available to download for free on the website of Glasgow's very own Armellodie Records
