Stretchheads -- Five Fingers, Four Thingers, a Thumb, a Facelift and a New Identity
Scottish punk band from the late '80s and early '90s that fit it around here rather well, although they're fairly new to me. Falls somewhere between Deep Turtle and Arab on Radar -- abrasive, fast, a tad whiny at times, but mostly top notch. I bet they were amazing live. Perhaps they're even good enough to let the rest of the world forgive Scotland for that I would walk 500 miles song by The Proclaimers.
Some of these guys are currently in a band called Desalvo, whose debut album will probably be up here before long, so stay tuned.
