I have a new favourite band.
The credit for this goes to Brian or the blame if my bank manager is on the phone.
On his albums of the year list he described The Scenic Route by Dropkick thus :They're a little bit country (early Jayhawks) and a little bit rock 'n' roll (Teenage Fanclub around 'Songs From Northern Britain') and have somehow improved upon 2018 album 'Longwave...' and that's saying a lot.
That was enough for me to head to their bandcamp page to order a copy which very impressively reached me around 48 hours later. Brian's description is absolutely spot on.
Dropkick are a band from Edinburgh with Andrew Taylor as the singer and songwriter. Yet again Brian has drawn a Scottish act that I was totally oblivious of to my attention.
Brian kindly shared a link to the previously reference Longwave and I'm happy to report that it is of a similar quality.
The bandcamp link is above. You know what to do
