Current and past Edinburgh punk/ reggae/ ska bands with Hearts fans as members

Recommended Posts

VikingHeart

Starting a thread on this topic as it would nice to get some recommandations on currents bands that also follow the famous. I've understood from hanging around the forum that Wattie from the Exploited is a PHM. Moreover I was wondering if Brassknuckle happens to be Jambos as well? Bakers Dozen might be a strong candidate too or am I wrong? Any other punk/oi or ska/ reggae bands?

I guess my brother's band were semi-Punk back in the day

 

Two current regulars at Tynecastle and posters on here in the band, can be seen in the photos used in this video (never miss a chance to post a video)

That's cool to know that two members of Brassknuckle are Hearts fans as their last record was quite catchy. Do you know if they have any new material coming out soon? I knew Bakers Dozen had that song which made me think that they followed Edinburgh's finest.

I think most bands have some members that are not that interested in football as music is the main focus.

Cracking selection you mentioned there. I think the best song title was "where are all  the old man bars?" Haha😄  Please add more suggestions if any comes to mind.

They're really good so that's super. I think of them as the Scottish equivalent of the New Yorkers the Slackers.

I think at least vocalist Colin is a big Villa man so it could be that he follows them as well.

You may well be right on that one. Never had him down as a big football fan in general tbh.

Unfortunatly I don't remember where I got this from. Nevertheless GBH is still a great band both live and on record. Jock has been with GBH since 1979 which is incredible. Do you know if he's orginally from Edinburgh? What is his connection to Hearts?

Indeed - Mike's a season ticket holder though

 

Kenny Dalgleish was a hibby but his brother Steven,  is a regular (might be season ticket holder, not sure)

Don't think so unfortunatly as he's (according to google) a prog rocker and not a punk rocker (although many punk bands seem to be more progressive than many prog bands) . However the more Jambos the better so thanks anyways PTP. 😀

That's brilliant info tedarmy. Have to mention that if I ever to talk to him pre/post a show sometime.

I remember reading somewhere (could've been dutch RR) that they were in the making of some new material but then all of a sudden I heard nothing. It's therefore good to hear that they're up and running although I understand they have to take precautions because of the current Covid 19 situation. 

 

I didn't know that Bakers Dozen just released some new material, thanks for the tip tedarmy.

That was some really quirky stuff. I just listened to some samples from the "The Only Fun in Town" Album from 1981 which with it's so called terrible "budget" (to me almost always brilliant) production made it quite interesting despite not exactly qualifing as boot boy anthems. I have to admit I don't like most new wave and frown when I hear the name post punk (as punk's not deid yet right?)" but sometimes they get it right enough as in this case.  Thanks benny😀

My Auntie was Jock's sister. Not my auntie by blood though, she sort of married into my family but continued to be a part of it after my Uncle's passing. My Auntie was originally from down Prestonpans, but from what I recall of their childhoods, they had a hard life and I think were seperated through most of life. My Auntie herself passed away when I was only 17, so my knowledge of all this sadly isn't better.

 

She lost all contact with Jock though for many years in adult life and only re-united maybe 2-3 years before she passed. By that point, me and my Dad had turned my Auntie into a proper wee Jambo and got her to a lot of games as a reason to get her out the house and keep her active when she was ill. Jock brought his daughter Bridget (sp) up to meet my Auntie too round this time. She lived in America and sadly even passed away herself barely a month or 2 before my Auntie did, so 2011 was definitely a tough year for Jock. I didn't get the pleasure of meeting Bridget, but there's a photo of Bridget and my Auntie stood in the living room watching a derby in Hearts tops.

 

I think Jock is more of a Jambo now as a way of sort of keeping my Auntie's memory alive. I've only met him a handful of times though, and like I said he's not blood family so I don't really know much more than this. Apologies for the long history lesson. If you're both into the Edinburgh punk scene, you may well be familiar with the Punk For Pam benefit gigs that have become an annual thing?

That is indeed the one mate. Not om Facebook as much these days but I knew it was on his page somewhere.

 

I've been to a couple of the punk for Pam's myself, so we may have crossed paths. I'm not really a punk at all to be honest, but my Dad is quite well known in the Edinburgh punk scene. An old Drylaw Jambo too.

I heard about those shows but never gotten the chance to go. From clips on youtube it looks like Edinburgh has a pretty healthy Punk/alternative scene.

Here in Norway most punks/skins and (black)metalheads get along just fine.

Does anyone here know if any of the members of Cuttin' Edge are Jambos? According to the Rebellion Records in Holland they're based in Edinburgh (but not from Edinburgh? and are described as a mix between Exploited and Motorhead. What do you think about them?

There is a new Norwegian black metal documentary series out now that's actually pretty good for being a mainstream take on a musical subculture. The original Mayhem vocalist Messiah (now Billy) is in a punk band called Cockroach Clan which made their record debut in 1995. In the first episode of this documentary he's interviewed wearing an The Opressed hoodie.

 

Looks like I better buy the Cuttin' Edge record if they're decent live and I also think it wouldn't hurt to support the Edinburgh punk/ska scene. I guess Roddy is the vocalist as I found his accent to be way different to that of Exploited/ Brassknuckle and what I heard in Edinburgh. in that case he's a hun I hope that the famous are his bigger team😉 Luigi sounds Italian to me, I can't stand the southern european style of football but I have an impression that most people are crazy about football down there.

 

What are some good bar suggestions if I want to go out and see a punk/ ska show, met some local punks/skins and have some good beers?  I've been to Bannerman's but would also appreciate other recommendations for my next visit to the auld reekie.

 

Please keep on mentioning bands (preferrably jambo bands) too😀

bannermans is the best place for gigs. la belle angele and the liquid rooms are great for the bigger bands. the banshee is also great for smaller bands.

That's interesting that radio Forth promoted local bands in a John peel manner. It's a big difference to the pap that they pump out now. 

Couple of good tunes too. I don't remember the andriods so a belated 👍👏👏 from me
