BMX Bandits

Bee Stings

The Bandits have been a Scottish jangle-pop institution practically since the dawn of time, with Kurt Cobain famously being in awe of their tunesmithery. Fifteen (15!) albums down the line and they can still write the melodies, but their roguish charm has been replaced with a middle-aged slickness that’s not so much BMX Bandits as Volvo estate. Shame.
