Best Scottish Band Poll
01/18/05 at 02:44:08
 
Who won that poll for the best Scottish band that those of us on the UK forum voted on? I saw something about Belle and Sebastian winning a poll. Was it the same one, and where did the Dels come? Does anyone know? What happened to the other forum anyway? Did it blow a gasket at one of Joe's occasional porn posts?! Shocked

I think that was the same poll.  Don't know where DA came.  Someone ran out of 50pences for the meter and the site collapsed - Joe doesn't seem to be responsible for it but I'm prepared to be proven wrong.

Dels came 23rd, just behind the Trashcan Sinatras.  Better news was the Bay City Rollers at no. 7.

Sensational Alex Harvey band was the best of the top 10.  Belle and Sebastien at no1.  No wonder the footie team is shit if kidds rate that pish that highly!!!

It has been suggested that it might be more to do with Belle & Sebastian's obsessive (and organised) fanbase - we're too jaded I guess.

That'll be it. Their fans got them the Brits award a few years ago which Steps had a hissy fit about (a great moment in music!). A lesson to us all. I think B&S are ok, although I wouldn't describe them as the "best" of anything, let alone the output of a whole nation! Where would we find the full list then?
