OK, if you happen to be a perv who’s stumbled on here hoping for either a little titillation or even something downright naughty, sorry but this post is actually all about two of the very best singles to come out of Scotland this year so you know where YouPorn is.*

Firstly, an irresistible new track by The Sexual Objects, the latest band to feature the former Fire Engines, Win and Nectarine No. 9 frontman Davy Henderson. Last night the SOBs backed the legendary Vic Godard at Edinburgh’s Liquid Rooms, performing Vic’s What’s the Matter Boy? album in full. They’re appearing again tonight with Vic at Glasgow’s CCA. Was hoping to be there myself but, due to unforeseen circumstances, sadly it wasn’t to be.

Here’s Feels With Me, which according to their Facebook page, was filmed in Girona, Osaka and Dunbar by Soland Goose. Enjoy.


You may well have been hearing a lot recently about Casual Sex, the band that is.They seem to be Vic Godard fans and their debut single Stroh 80, was released earlier this year on limited edtion 7″ vinyl and download on the Moshi Moshi Singles Club and very good it was too, especially the glammy guitar that sounded midway between Mick Ronson and Robert Fripp. They’ve just been supporting Franz Ferdinand on tour and have just brought out an EP from which this comes – Nothing on Earth, the video of which was filmed not in Girona, Osaka or Dunbar but in good ol’ Glasgow by Partikular Films.


The Bastard Beat EP is available through We Can Still Picnic on limited edition 12” vinyl and digitally through all reputable outlets. And I can’t put it any better than one fan did on YouTube: ‘fantastische fantastische fantastische’.
