  • Good band, album "Good Deeds and Dirty Rags" recommended. Quality 80s pop rock. Yeah this got Shirley Manson as a band member but this music isn't at all like Garbage. Think more like Simple Minds, Waterboys,...
  • The remarkable Martin Metcalfe and friends, your country salutes you, my favourite band from Caledonia, immense and astonishing live, remember one gig in my home town, a very exclusive venue and I turned to one of my mates as we were being blown away and said, " the wee girl at the back on keyboards is a real star, yes Shirley you are a mega star, fantastic

  • What I love about growing older myself and getting to know people who were old enough to be going to gigs in the late 80s/early 90s, is that there is a lot of love for Goodbye Mr. Mackenzie still around... they are like a mythical band everyone of that era in Scotland liked and miss.
  • I find that Shirley sounds... sounded really better in GMMK
