Staff Pick Of The Week: Fickle Public - Bucko

"Awesome. Brilliant." Mike Diver, Drowned in Sound

Scotland's answer to Burning Airlines. I first heard this band when I was given their tour EP back in 2004. I was blessed to see them play at the Forum in London that later year supporting JPL. They are the band that everyone asks ‘Who’s that? Sounds lethal!’ every time I play them.

Unfortunately short-lived Fickle Public are the best type of rock and punk band - one with a heavy dose of quirk.  I was ecstatic to find out recently that they released a ‘Greatest Hits’ (five previously unreleased tracks that were going to be on their second album) and recently came across their video for "Just Like I Got Used To Saying Courtney Cox Arquette- it was like discovering your favourite band for the first time.
Five/Four always gets me on the floor.
