|The Amber Smith and Greenpeppers / Down At The Hop review / A new selection of Desert Island Discs for Duglas
A new release for the BMX Bandits on my very own record label. A very limited edition 7" single containing two previously unreleased gems from the vaults. A superior reworking of Whirlpool and a brilliant cover of Abba's Honey Honey. Unfortunately sold out. Found some surplus copies
Francis' Nice Man album out now.
The unoffical tribute to the BMX BanditsA warm welcome to the first website dedicated to the Scottish pop stars the BMX Bandits. Lets be honest here, the site has been up and running since 1996 and has been through many incarnations. It has been neglected because of the real lack of news and the fact I have been busy earning a living so I have decided to change the format a little. What you will get here is a collection links and things to the archived pages gathered over the years to all things Bandit related. I recently went through most of the things on the website and plenty are out of date, but it remains as part of the history of the BMX Bandits. Have a look around. New news will appear occasionally but don't hold your breath.
|Apologies for the real bad design/colour schemes/spelling/inconsistency on most of these pages. I was learning then and now know it needs a major overhaul.
