One of our favourite records of summer 2014 was The Bluebells retrospective, Exile On Twee Street, Songs From Glasgow 1980-1982. Pre-dating their hit singles, Exile re-connects the group to a world of Postcard, Bill Forsyth and The Hellfire Club, which like Orange Juice's Ostrich Churchyard, is where most of these recordings were made. Glasgow in 1980 was a city under transformation, still rough around the edges, not quite gentrified. Musically things were starting to move on from punk and The Bluebells were right in the drift, eyes on the chance, songs in pocket, an important and friendly presence. Exile On Twee Street is fantastic proof of everything that was great about The Bluebells, winning amateur pop music from Glasgow featuring Everybody's Somebody's Fool, Some Sweet Day and East Green.
