The Vigo Thieves Stealing Again

There’s more to Glasgow than sectarianism and heart attacks, you know. One of the best aspects is its slew of great bands, led by the splendid Vigo Thieves. Frontman Stevie Jukes gave us a listen to the band’s new EP Steal Your Heart, claiming that they’d ‘ditched The Strokes in favour of Big Country’.

There’s definitely a bit of truth in that statement, with the superb ‘Blood Red’ recalling Adamson and co at their often-forgotten tartan post-punk best. The band recall Glasvegas without the irritating affectations, with Jukes’ urbane detachment failing to mask the perennial working-class struggle between artistic freedom and football hooliganism, and bloody good thing too. Add to that a musical education far beyond that of most peers and you have the base metals for something quite golden.

Steal Your Heart is released on April 26th and the band will be on tour to support it. More info at their myspace http://www.myspace.com/vigothieves and we’ll have a full interview with them next month.
