California-based trio Neutrals release their debut album, ‘Kebab Disco’, on Emotional Response.
The band, fronted by expat Scot Allan McNaughton, formed from the ashes of Giant Haystacks, who most recently released a compilation, ‘This Is All There Is’, last year.
Although not a concept album as such, the new 12-track long-player has a theme which sees its first side set in early 1990s Glasgow, with the action on the flip moving to San Francisco.
When based in Glasgow, McNaughton was a member of Glue, which featured Stef Sinclair – who would later join El Hombre Trajeado – Angus McPhee, Iglomat’s Sandy Carson, and RM Hubbert, who joined the band when the guitarist moved to the USA.
As well as being available online, Monorail in Glasgow is stocking a limited edition signed print of the back cover photo by Neil Davidson.
Jockrock says: “Aptly, a dozen tracks which perfectly marry up Scots post-punk and US indie jangle”
