I featured The Roly Mo on track of the day last year when I picked their debut single ‘Fooled by You‘. Back then they were an up and coming member of the Glasgow punk scene and I could only find a live version of the song to share, performed at the legendary King Tuts.
Now they’re a bit more established, but no less raw and energetic. This has all the melodic hallmarks of their contemporaries – bands like Baby Strange, Voodoos, Paris Street Rebels. But it has something of the more classic punk sound to it too. There’s something in the chorus that reminds me of the ’70’s, Buzzcocks is maybe who I’m thinking of.
In any case, great song. Great new(ish) band. Another in a long line of impressive acts coming out of Glasgow and that whole enduring scene up there. Keep your eyes on these boys.
