The Endless Note

Minstrels, Poets and Vagabonds – Glasgow

Of all the bands in the Glasgow rock scene in the 80’s it is the band “Glasgow” that I remember the best seeing them often playing at the Cutty Sark in Dumbarton with their “tour bus” parked at the rear.

“Glasgow”, the name being based on the theory that if there is Boston, Chicago etc then why not “Glasgow”, started like most bands by basing their set on a series of traditional classic rock cover versions gradually adding some originals of a similar style which lead to a record deal in 1983 with Neat Records and following a 12″ single release (“Under The Lights) they released the 7” “Stranded” which featured this track as the B-Side

“In The Heat Of The Night” – Glasgow

High profile support slots followed with the likes of Roberto’s fave The Heep and Nazareth and by 1987 they were given the opportunnity to release the album “Zero Four One” (041 the Glasgow dial code of the time) from which this track is taken.

“We Will Rock” – Glasgow

The name “Glasgow” has now been adopted by a band from New Orleans see HERE
