Fuck – I Forgot the Fucking Fives!

Er sorry everyone, I wrote out my post for Friday, got totally carried away with myself, and forgot to add a Friday Five, so here it is.

The post I wrote was all about Channel 4’s recent Sounds From the Cities: Edinburgh show, so I reckon the five songs should maybe be ones I would personally have chosen to illustrate the musical history of the city (and Scotland in general) had I been the one making the choices (and yes, I promise, no Song, by Toad Records bands).

In terms of the five silly questions, well have a stab at these:

1. Name your number one all time favourite Scottish band.
2. Which is the worst band people seem to strongly associate with wherever it is you come from?
3. Where will Sounds From the Cities never go, which might make for some funny viewing?
4. Which band closely associated with where you’re from do you love the most?
5. Name a massively famous, massively influential band you’ve never really sat down and listened to at all.

Idlewild – When the Ship Comes In (alright, I shouldn’t have chosen this song, but I don’t actually know that much about Idlewild, but still think they and Roddy Woomble in particular deserved some sort of mention.)
