Glasgow-based legends and national treasures The Plimptons are to release a free download EP, The Plimptons Are Dead.
As the title suggests, it’s their swansong, their final testament, their shaking off of the musical coil that has formed the living, beating heart of Scottish music for the past 13 years.
The four tunes include a cover of MJ Hibbett’s ‘We Did It Anyway’ from the Moon Horse musical.
The band say their farewells on March 30th at Stereo in Glasgow at an all-day extravaganza / living wake, where the faithful can pay their last respects. Also on the bill – Esperanza, Girobabies, Eddie & The T-bolts and Colonel Dijon and the Mustards.
