We were in Stornoway this week doing the HebCelt Festival which was a lot of fun despite the ferocious wind, the relentless rain and the freezing temperatures. Troy and I were dressed for summer. Mistake. At least the miserable weather kept the midges at bay. We were asked to go on the local gaelic radio station to play a small set. They’d made a temporary studio in the community centre where a small audience of locals had gathered (to get out of the rain, most likely). I think it was the first time they’d ever had music by Wreckless Eric and The Stranglers, which was bad enough, but when I introduced ‘Anarchy in the UK’ by The Sex Pistols there was an audible presbyterian intake of breath from the crowd. We ploughed on. One man removed his small children from the room, the elderly fixed their worried gazes on the floor, and when we got back into the bus our driver said that they cut us off halfway through and went to the news!
