Glasgow is a special place, and the bands it produces are often very special.  The Yummy Fur are no exception, if you haven’t listened to them before then do.  There’s lots of great 90’s indie on display here and Piggy Wings is an excellent greatest hits compilation.  Besides, if it’s good enough for John Peel, then it’s good enough for us.

Singer / guitarist, John McKeown, fronted the band from their 1992 inception (scores of cartoon melodies under a minute long delivered at high velocity) until their demise in 1999. Along the way they recorded three albums: Night Club (1996), Male Shadow at Three O’Clock (1998) and Sexy World (1999). Firm favourites of John Peel, they recorded two sessions for the much revered DJ and regularly featured on his show.

The Yummy Fur were a Glasgow based art-rock group who existed between 1992-99. Throughout their existence they were led by vocalist/guitarist John McKeown, with a host of collaborators and co-conspirators over the years.
