The Common Redstarts

The Common Redstarts


The Common Redstarts are four dizzyingly ambitious lads from Edinburgh, harbouring their intentions with instant and infectious rock n roll. Their sole intention is to play great punk/rock and roll songs and TAKE OVER THE WORLD....


Think of the weekend, think of being in the pub with your mates, think of riding the hangover from the pricey pints and the cheap drugs. Think of feeling shit all day Sunday with your bird. Think of being a dick but being funny about it, think confidence not arrogance. Think of Joe Strummer. Think of Pete Docherty and Carl Barat off the hard stuff and doing what made us all happy. Think of a party that isn't ended by the police and a noise pollution order. Think of a gig for five folk, think of a gig for five hundred folk. Think of the art house music scene, now think of something else. Think Gallagher, think Liam, Noel and Rory. Think about waking up in a pool of sick and not remembering anything from the night before. Think of how many times it was never going to happen again. Think Hearts and Hibs and sing alongs in the kitchen. Think the Stone Roses or Johnny Cash or who ever comes to hand first. Think waking up in a wet bed and preying the dog did it. Think of paying fifteen quid to dance all night, think of getting paid nothing to busk all morning. Think of anything you want.
