The Assassenachs

click here for their MySpace site

Often varying line up of Folk Rockers from Scotland and other bits of Europe - Holland for example - with lots of other influences - Punk for example -  The Assassenachs set list has always included oddities, for example, songs about Scottish football players suffering from broken legs and flatulence and then there's, of course, 'The Grand Old Duke of York'. Other favourites include 'The star of the county down, Ride on, Black is the colour, The drunken sailor, The black velvet band' and not forgetting perennial crowd pleasers, 'The wild rover, Dirty old town and Whiskey in the jar'. Recently, however, the lads have leant towards their roots and have embraced more of the Scottish side of folk with songs like 'Bonnie ship the diamond', He wouldnae want his gruel and 'In kirkentilloch there are nae pubs' not to mention a few other classics. The odd pop song can be heard in there on occasion too....but we'll not go into that. - not to be missed
