Sun 3 Aug - Live at Loch Lomond
60’s inspired indie outfit The Down and Outs opened their set with Runrig’s ‘Loch Lomond’ entertaining a practically full tent. Their vibrant sound brought a real mixture of people to their set from punks to fashionable scenesters, proving they have the real potential for mass appeal, especially when taking into consideration the fact that their slot clashed with indie giants Idlewild.
With their songs packed full of “ooop ooop ooops” and “sha la la laa” they cry out The Small Faces, Frank Wilson and The Ronettes. If they manage to stay true to their pop deluxe roots then there is massive potential for this underdeveloped band.
