Long Fin Killie: unfairly overlooked Scottish band from the mid to late 90's. If you like these two tracks then just buy everything you can get a hold on! These two tracks are the only thing of theirs not available on CD - part of a 3X7" promo set to promote their first LP "Houdini" in the states. If anyone has any live/demo/outtakes from this band I'd love to hear it.

I think everything they put out is a revelation! Be sure to check out the Bows b-sides I've got on this blog as well, it's the closest thing Luke ever got to sounding like Long Fin again.

Richard, if there's any chance at all of you putting these up again, I'd be very grateful - all the links seem to be dead. Have been getting right back into LFK and Bows recently, having bought everything on release. Never got to hear these two, though. I'm hoping at least one of them will be in the vein of 'Boy Racer' from the Buttergut EP: perhaps the only time LFK *really* let rip on a studio recording. Did you ever track down any live bootlegs? I only ever saw them play once, I think, and my main memory is of Luke Sutherland's tiny violin, which I think may have been a three-quarter size one. Saw him playing with Mogwai last year, and he still gives Warren Ellis a run for his money. His novels are well worth tracking down, too, if you haven't already.

no i never tracked down any live recordings. these two tracks are great, can't fault anything they put out.

Thanks so much - got my wish, these are a couple of belters. I suppose I can see why they wouldn't have fitted on the album, but it always feels good to unearth buried treasure. Presumably they're from a vinyl rip, in which case you've done a tremendous job - they sound stunning.
