Biography

What started as a sneaky lunchtime pint and a game of pool in King Tuts, turned into a sacking and a new band was formed. Mayhem followed. The band were met with a healthy dose of joy and excitement, Sometimes confusion and occasionally disgust.

The Giros have since been played on BBC Radio by Paul Heaton (Beautiful South) and supported the likes of Proud Mary, Chris Helme (The Seahorses), Adam Fikec (Babyshambles), Jinx Lennon, Hugh Reed and the Velvet Underpants and much much more.

There has been countless memorable gigs (some great, some not so great) under their belt from sell out nights in Glasgow at venues such as Nice n Sleazys, 13th Note, Pivo Pivo, Buff Club, Ivory Blacks to taking a coachloads on the infamous `Girobus` to Twa Tams (Perth) , Henrys (Edinburgh) and selling out the H.A.C (Irvine)

The debut `album` was called `Social Not Working` and is available on a pay-what-you-like basis from http://thegirobabies.bandcamp.com

That was toured around the country with various festival appearances last year including Rock the Boat (Loch Lomond), Live at Troon, Rockfest (Ayr), Equinox (Dumfries) and various secret locations and warehouse parties
