Two bands. Both Scottish (ish). Full house. Chalk Farm. Caledonian invasion. Here goes:

The Xcerts *****
Three piece. Grunge pop. Huge sound. Ebola catchy. Brilliant album. Stadium bound. Big tunes. Sing along. Mann  Equin. Woo woo. Ooh ooh. Song craft. Energy brio. Top blokes. Tom Petty. Blue collar. Sardonic wit. Open hearts. Laid bare. Honest integrity. Lyrically smart. Edgy charm. Warm reception. True class. Big future. Bloody fantastic.

Twin Atlantic ***1/2**
Bohemian Rhapsody. Brave intro. Huge anorak. Packed house. Full on. Stadium friendly. Adoring throng. Old songs. New songs. Big songs. Fizzy knickers. Sing backs. Community karaoke. Beast myself. Heart soul. Growing up. Inexorable rise. Rosy future. Show men. Power pop. Future headliners. Festival favourites. Flowery wellies. Radio friendly. Nothing unlikeable. All good.
