Street Party. Glasgow style (1918)

A wee antidote to you know what. Get that cloying sickly taste out of the thrapple.


  1. And the best street party of the year, the Durham Miners' Gala, is yet to come. Keep that red flag flying.

  2. Much though I love Dick Gaughan, I think Big Arthur from the old Glw band, Laggan, did the best version of this one......circa 1970!

  3. Alen. This weekend would have been the Scottish Miner's Gala on Leith Links, but of course the expression Scottish Miner no longer has a physical manifestation. Dick Gaughan would have been there.

    Iain. Aaaah. You've opened the door to a wee musical cubby-hole I haven't visited for too long.Who are these cobweb-encrusted figures - Matt McGinn ? Ray Fisher ? The High Level Ranters ? Louis Killen ? Bob Davenport ?
    Excuse me - I'm off to youchoob.
