The Dykeenies

Acquiring their name from a little bit of dialogue through the dream film Willow (spelled “daikinis,” the term described unusually tall people), Scotland’s the Dykeenies hail from Cumbernauld, a town close to Glasgow. The group was shaped by vocalist Brian Henderson (who doubles on keyboards) and his sibling, lead guitarist Alan Henderson, in the summertime of 2005. Composing songs that shown an arty but enthusiastic fusion of pop, rock and roll, and digital accents, Brian and Alan recruited their sibling Andrew Henderson to try out bass in the brand new band, and curved out the lineup with two longtime close friends, Steven Ramsay on electric guitar and John Kerr on drums. After slicing their tooth playing little gigs around Glasgow, the Dykeenies got their initial big break if they earned the Your Audio competition at Glasgow’s famous rock venue Ruler Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, and in July 2006 they released an individual through the fledging Ruler Tut’s Recordings, a label released with the club’s administration to showcase brand-new artists. Lavolta Information signed the music group to a agreement, as well as the Dykeenies’ initial discharge for the label, a four-song EP, found its way to time because of their appearance in the NME Rock and roll ‘n’ Move Riot tour, a bundle show also offering the Horrors, the Fratellis, as well as the Maccabees. After intensive gigging in Scotland and Britain, the Dykeenies released the New Concepts single in Apr 2007, which proclaimed their initial entry in the United kingdom graphs. The Stitches one found its way to U.K. shops on Sept 10, 2007, using the group’s initial full-length album, Nothing at all Means Everything, falling seven days later.
