The Play Button

How come this band has not been hyped as the next big thing from Britain ? Are Arctic Monkeys still the flavour of the week ? Well, it's probably a good thing because Scanners are more than just the new hip band on the block - their debut album Violence is Golden released this month has that spunk of Elastica but their sound is more complete and well-rounded.

Eist is gaelic for listen (correct me if I'm wrong) and I couldn't think of a more appropriate song to post to kick of this blog. CLANN ZÚ are a now defunct band that put out 2 brilliant albums Rua and Black Coats & Bandages - combining folk, rock, punk, noise with gut-wrenching vocals sung in english & gaelic. The lyrics are equal parts political and personal that provide just the right punch.
Eist is from an unofficial album Red Emitting Light Organ that is extremely hard to find even online and since the band is cool about sharing and trading of their music...I'm posting it for your listening pleasure.
