The Light Before We Land

'The Delgados, influential figures in Glasgow's independent music scene for over 10 years, have announced that they are to amicably disband. The reason has been put down to the departure of their bass player Stewart Henderson who informed the band in the New Year that he did not wish to make another album. The Delgados have always been known as uniquely collaborative songwriters and as such, it was decided that the band could not continue without all of its original members.'

The above isn't particularlyt new news, but I thought I'd link to a track by The Delgados as they have probably been one of the most consistent and interesting of the many scottish bands I am into. I went to see them in Derby when they released 'Peleton' and the whole Chemikal Underground label had just started. Even back then they were a force to reckon with live and since then every album has been even better than its predecessor. Thats saying something these days! Anyway I am excited to hear what Emma and Alun come up with on their own projects, but in the meantime this track is just so HUGE !!! Enjoy
