  1. They have dis-banded now, but they were from Scotland...........kinda celtic rock. Anyone else heard of them?

    Yep. They used to be a regular feature of New Years Eve TV here, along with Capercaillie and Runrig. I tried to avoid them like the plague.
     
  3. WHY?!?! Runrig are possibly the best band in Britain. Capercaille are good too, and Wolfstone were awesome. I grew up listening to music like that. Why don't you like it? :confused:

    Do I get bonus points for being the first American to have heard of them?

    Doesn't really float my boat, but my roommate loves 'em.

    Sure. Played a couple of festivals with them when I was in a Celtic rock band myself (more on the Irish side than Scottish). They were good, and nice guys too.

    We could just leave it at "I just don't really like it" although that wouldn't come anywhere near describing how loathsome I find music of that type. It's not so much the music as everything that goes with it... the Braveheart inspired nationalism etc. Horrible.
     
  7. :confused: I know Runrig wrote Alba, but that's the only thing I've ever heard from them that's been nationalistic. Plus Malcolm Jones owns on guitar. :cool:

    No, I'm talking about a certain subsection of their fanbase. Some scottish people are very anti-english, and I really, really hate that. It's not Runrig's fault, but they inevitably attract these scum.
     
  9. Well, the truth is Runrig own. They beat mediocre bands like U2 out of sight.
     
  10. A few million U2 fans would beg to differ.
     
  11. Runrig own U2 in EVERY way. Malcolm Jones pwns the Edge out of sight.
