The Return Of Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 156


I said last week I was trying to think of some Scottish rockabilly to cheer up our Scottish friends following the referendum but couldn't. Then Mr Charity Chic suggested The Shakin' Pyramids, Glasgow's own rockabilly band. I'd never heard of them but this song, from 1981, is a cracker. They learnt their skills busking on the streets of Glasgow in the late 70s and put out two albums and several singles and eps between 1980 and 83.



Me and Mrs Swiss are out at a 40th birthday bash tonight. The invite reads 'dress to impress with a dash of red'. Any ideas?

You could have my 1992 cup final Airdrie top if you were up here, handsome! as Jimmy would say.

Sounds ideal.

Oh Jesus, I used to have an album of theirs. Forgot all about them.

I suspect it may well have been Skin 'Em Up Lee which I think may have been their only album. Happy to be proved wrong

charity chic said...

I may indeed by wrong as I've just read Adam's post again which states they had two albums!

Red underwear. Nothing else. Both. And tell us after how that went.

It was Skin 'Em Up. Very good album as I remember.
