They acheived noteriety not so much through their singles (The Honeythief, Ask the Lord, The Broken years) but through the song Tinder which featured on a McEwans Lager advert (a series of visually stunning adverts which ran during the mid 80's).
They acheived a cult following and it's no wonder with so many great tracks on the abumn.
Sound :- The band have a bluesy light rock sound reminisent of early Texas songs (no surprise there) which feature stunning vocals. The best songs on the Album are Ask the Lord, The Honey thief, The Broken Years, Tinder, Long White car.
Ask the Lord has to be one of the best written pop songs of the 80's dealing with exploitation of minorities without being an overly pungent political song (unlike Simple Minds' Mandelah day). The rest of the Album has a few remixes (which don't really add anything but flesh out the albumn a bit more which it doesn't need) and some reasonably good tracks.
It's worth buying the album just for the tracks i've mentioned. Their follow-up albumn sadly is not as good.
You could also check out another great Scottish band lost in the same way Hipsway were called Love and Money (a more pop sound) whose albumn Sugarland Express is almost as good.
Wow - I first played this in the mid80's and for a long period it took pride of place in my collection alongside other favs of the time - Orange Juice and the Smiths.
It is a treasure that I love to dig up now and then and I am always pleasantly surprized how well it sounds.
Reading the reveiws here had me memory lipsyncing the lyrics, grinning like a fool, full of joy and well being.
This carried me through the 80's and for me today to listen to it is an uplifting experience.
It is a truly wonderful set of songs.
A desert island disc.
A treasure island disc.
No beating about here - just buy it OK.
Another reviewer has quite rightly pointed out that it has aged well, and they're not wrong it hasn't aged much at all, With the amount of turgid drivel about these days I doubt very much that you can revisit an album of 2014 28 years later and it sound as good as this one does.
Highlights for me are "Tinder", "Upon a thread" and my favourite "Set this day apart."
Massively under-rated group and album, this is sheer magic from the 1980's, buy it!
Even 25 years on I listen to this album on my iPod regularly. Its an album where I listen to all the songs because they are all classics.
Its a must fro every music lovers collection

A Classic. The fact that this band and album did not make it big makes me wonder who they upset within the media.Published 28 days ago by Mrnstg
So - you can pay just over £5 for a hard copy CD of this classic album (which includes download) but £7.99 for a download. Sort it out Amazon!!Published 19 months ago by Ellie
