Scottish Polis Inspectors


A bit of a Scottish Polistory. After scraping their knees together, they scraped their fingers on guitars and pianos and banged them on biscuit tins before playing songs in front of people in the upstairs rooms of pubs in Newcastle upon Tyne, including a few with the Anti-pop Organisation (Arthur2Stroke, Noise Toys etc) when those Viz boys were selling Viz 1 in the toilet. Since then, they've played with various line-ups in Sheffield, Newcastle, Leicester and London... Read more on Last.fm
A bit of a Scottish Polistory. After scraping their knees together, they scraped their fingers on guitars and pianos and banged them on biscuit tins before playing songs in front of people in the upstairs rooms of pubs in Newcastle upon Tyne, including a few with the Anti-pop Organisation (Arthur2Stroke, Noise Toys etc) when those Viz boys were selling Viz 1 in the toilet. Since then, they've played with various line-ups in Sheffield, Newcastle, Leicester and London... The philosophy of the Scottish Polis Inspectors has always been serious fun; to make music with feeling and meaning. They are now based and recording in Newcastle upon Tyne but have always been a collective with various Inspectors ploughing semi-detached furrows in the East Midlands and Australia. They decided to finally record some songs properly (instead of through the built-in mics of cassette recorders onto EMI Soundhogs) and came up with the Gina McKee EP in 2005 and the rest of the songs on the Gina McKee album in 2006, all recorded at the fabulous Cluny Studios in Newcastle upon Tyne. A couple of songs were featured in a friendly blog and their music spread to some small pockets of Germany, Spain, Australia, Brazil, Taiwan and the US.

In Berlin, Firestation Records liked them enough to stick Gina McKee (the song) on their ‘The British Invasion Vol 2’ compilation (FST 072). They have been played on BBC 6music (Gideon Coe), Resonance FM, James Clarke's Northern Uproar on Radio Newcastle and German radio. Google "scottish plois inspectors" for the proof!
