The Electrics are a Celtic rock band from Dumbarton, Scotland. They formed in 1988 when former Infrapenny members Sammy Horner (vocals and bass guitar) and Paul Baird (guitar) asked drummer Dave McArthur and sax/keyboard player Allan Hewitt to play a gig at Glasgow's Impact Festival. The band released a self-financed cassette album, Views in Blues, in 1989. Following this recording the band evolved a celtic rock sound, heavily influenced by The Waterboys and The Pogues. Subsequent recordings included Vision and Dreams (1990) which was distributed by Word Records, and Big Silent World (1993), on Germany's Pila Music label.
Renowned for their energetic performances, the band have performed in the UK, Europe and the USA.
The band have not officially disbanded but have no plans to play any shows in the near future; Sam Horner is currently a church based youth worker in Canada, while the rest of the band members, past and present, remain in ScotlandЧитать далее в Википедии...
