"Blind Pew Live"

"Blind Pew know how to take their already great songs and kick them up the arse with a good dose of rock star stylings for the live setting. As live bands go, these guys have style and class in bucketloads. Nothing else needs to be said... go see this band!"
- Glasswerk


"Blind Pew @ King Tuts Wah Wah Hut, Glasgow - 18/June/2005"

Blind Pew are ‘Geek Rock’. They incorporate every stereotypical geek persona into their appearance and music. Lead singer Andy McGregor is a cross between eccentric, geek music director Spike Jonze and your drunken dad dancing, the rest of the band is made up of longhaired bully targets and a fat bloke with glasses.

The music, however, is garage rock with hints of The White Stripes and Rolling Stones. On ‘Experiment’, Blind Pew’s Stones influence’s are clearly evident – apart from the fact singer Andy reaches notes higher than a midget kicked in the balls. Stand out tracks of the night were the brilliantly named 'The Day I Ran Over My Girlfriend' and 'Pig-faced Whore' – the latter of the two being a song about one of Glasgow’s finest lady of the night.

'Blind Pew' incorporate their tongue-in-cheek humour into their dirty garage rock music, which quite frankly works well for them. - Jockrock


"You're Claimed! EP Review"

Scotland has its own Razorlight. The jaunty rock/ska blend Johnny Borrell has taken to the top of the charts isn't just a London thing. Four piece Blind Pew have the same sound, from the singer's voice, to the keyboard, the rhythm and the knowing lyrics. First song The Devil In I could easily be mistaken for a Razorlight tune (Golden Touch and Somewhere Else for starters.) Uh-Huh is a pub blues band being clever. Some Happy Mondays underline Experiment and it's only the final song Memories For Show with it's indie rock guitars and handclaps that promises something special. Singer and keyboard player Andy McGregor produces Dogs Die In Hot Cars so it's all well-polished. - Daily Record


"Artist of the Week Profile - Blind Pew"

With seemingly boundless reserves of energy, Blind Pew have stormed the border and take residence in the Artist of the Week stronghold. There's a hint of the glam, and generous helping of rock & roll, and more hooks than an angling supply shop having a special surplus sale. - Karma Download

Bio

Mixing satirical lyrics with music that’s oft-described as down and dirty rock n roll, Scottish four-piece Blind Pew have established themselves as one of the most promising bands on the Scottish music scene.

Formed in Largs in 2003, Blind Pew typically rocked their way free of small town life. The four met at school and have been playing together ever since. For the most part now based in Glasgow, the bands prosaic beginnings have led to a musical career that’s anything but generic.

Their own, irreverent brand of rock stylings that have drawn comparisons to the likes of The Rolling Stones and The White Stripes has been readily met with the enthusiasm of critics and crowds alike.

Support slots with long-time friends Dogs Die In Hot Cars, Kid Symphony and Three Unstrung, as well as airplay on BBC Radio Scotland and XFM Scotland raised the bands profile and paved the way for the well-received EP You’re Claimed.

Following the EP's release, Blind Pew were featured as Artist of the Week on Karma Download, played at the PRS New Music Tent at Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival, supported The Subways at Gig (Edinburgh) and Littlan’s at the Glasgow Barfly.The latter half of 2006 saw Blind Pew sign to A List Records and support Idlewild at Strathclyde Students’ Union

In the words of one critic, Blind Pew know how to take their already great songs and kick them up the arse with a good dose of rock star stylings for the live setting.

Indisputable garage rock prowess is often interspersed with energetic theatrics reminiscent of some of the genres most-loved acts and supported by the bands obvious on-stage chemistry.

Look out for debut single 'Hungry Young Fighter' - released on July 16th 2007, to be followed in August by debut album 'Blueprints For World Domination'
