About this item

"If I could be in any other band, it would be BMX Bandits." Kurt Cobain

Much loved in ultra-hip circles across the globe for 35 years, BMX Bandits are the extended musical family of Duglas T. Stewart. Many notable Glasgow-based musicians have passed through the group, among them Stewart’s childhood friends Norman Blake, who later founded Teenage Fanclub, and Sean Dickson and Jim McCulloch of the Soup Dragons, who also came out of Bellshill in Scotland.Both appear on this session from 1987 recorded for long-term supporter Janice Long for the BBC.

Jowe Head, of Swell Maps and Television Personalities, is among those to appear on this second session, which includes a version of the jazz standard ‘Take Five’ – with words.
