Lonnie Ball Bandits

Criminally overlooked in the top 50 list below was one of the best selling Scottish artists ever - Lonnie Donegan. Here's a brilliant version of Rock Island Line, starting off all slow bluesy, then building up to the sheer skiffle fest it started life as. Class. Ballboy, I stumbled over by accident at the new artists tent at T in the Park years ago and they completely won me over. It was also a real thrill to share a stage with Gordon ballboy at the Peel tribute last year. Olympic Cyclist is a beautifully wrought tune which really grows on you. The BMX Bandit song is simply pop magic.

Share a stage? I shared a girlfriend... (though not at the same time, you'll be pleased to note...)

I should start ma ain blog- Renton's Rock N Roll N Chips (de Shoulder).
 
Renton - you tart. I think you should start your own blog, so's you can regale us with stories of the infamous West Lothian tour, chucking the telly oot the Linlithgow B&B and peeing in the loch. Rock n Roll. Phew.
