The Scottish Enlightenment, Edinburgh College Of Art, 15/11/10


Wee Red seems to be packing the talent these days. Yum! The ECA union this time hosted The Scottish Enlightenments ‘St Thomas’ album launch, with performances by Trapped Mice and Jesus H. Fox. It was also the first time I have ever laid eyes on Tallah Brash, vocalist and xylophone teaser to Jesus H. Fox (one day soon she will accept my friend request on facebook…)

So at this particular event, one was a little inebriated and might have done a few things that night, that were a little out of character, like dance in front of Jesus H. Fox during their set. I might have snuck a bottle of scotch into my bag and passed it round everyone, and I might have chatted up some lassie who I thought was Drew Barrymore, but the one thing I am very proud of, was seeing The Scottish Enlightenment pour their sexy tunes all over the place, pouring them like a big girl spilling a barrel of honey mead into a drinking horn that is so totally overwhelmed by it’s tasty ambrosia.

Oh my. This band is probably the sexiest band in Scotland today. Their music physically arouses me. I hate them for making me so addicted to their sound. ’Necromancer’, is always playing in my house. It’s just so dirty! The bass is just so sumptuous. It’s this lavish 90′s dirt that keeps me going back for more like a 10p hooker, actually no, a £5 hooker. Let’s make it realistic. The Scottish Enlightenment should be signed now. Here endeth the lesson.
