About a fortnight ago my mum posted A Very Cellular Song on Facebook and tagged me to ask if I still liked as much as I did when I was 9. I do.
Accusations of hippy tweeness are completely impossible to deny but it’s all tied up with my childhood and daft running jokes between my parents and their friends.
I do believe there’s a weirdness behind it too. Could just be the whole idea of somebody from Broxburn taking acid and trying to play the sitar but they’re a band who seem like they’re always trying to expand the boundaries of what they know and what they can play. Even when they don’t.
