Records - The Plimptons (4 stars)

The Plimptons

Pomp (Ivan Lendl)


Lanarkshire, so much to answer for - so it’s only right that one-time Mogwai and Teenage Fanclub man Brendan O’Hare is on hand to polish the, shall we say, raw materials presented to him by the Motherwell quartet, who keep the ‘shambling’ traditions of bands like The Pastels or BMX Bandits alive. However, it’s not for nothing the band christened themselves ‘Franz Ferdinand 2’, as their wry lyrics are matched by their way with a tune, the band even raising their game to that of a Scottish Pulp on closer ‘Impulse Records’, in another nod to their very fertile local music scene.
