The Proclaimers

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Has anyone lisened to the weird, scottish rock band called The Proclaimers, I have their first three cd's from the late 80's, early 90's weird, sorta like beatles gone bad, with scottish accents, slight gaelic influences. I think everyone has heard the famouse song, "I'm gonna be" or "500 miles". Are their newer albums worth buying?

They had a new album out recently but it all sounds the same <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

Scottish folk sing songs by The Proclaimers when they are drunk, which is quite a lot of the time actually.

J :cool:

They opened for barenaked ladies last year, played their one hit way to early in the show, after which the crowd lost interest. As far as I can tell they've remade the same type of song over and over.

Hahahaha. God, when I was younger, I loved the 500 miles song. I would listen to it over and over and over again. God was I stupid.

Hah! The Proclaimers, ye say...

Withoot a word o' exagerration these twa galactic meteorites of poptabulous plant-splintering grooviness hae done mare for popular music than the accumulated might o' all the assembled hosts o' Rock's Rampant Greatest Gargantuans wi' the sole exception o' Their Royal Highnesses o' wall-tae-wall excellence John, Paul, George and Ringo.

Wi' naught but six strings o' concentrated, twangy coolness they are beating back the dark forces o' antigroove and hitting the upturned acne-scarred face o' CynicalNihilisticNastyRock like a celestial comet o' pure anti-bacterial Retinol.

Burn your auld LP's and CD's - mak' room on your shelves for The Michty Proclaimer Brithers, Now!
