Like you needed another reason to love the Trashcan Sinatras:
It has always been a source of frustration to me that the generally socially conscious, community based, fair minded voting patterns of Scotland have been relatively futile in impact. In fact, for the majority of my life, Scotland has been governed by non socially conscious governments. It felt awful and frustrating to live through, still does, and now there is a chance, one chance, to take what will always be, to some degree, a leap in the dark and take hold of complete autonomy for ourselves.
John Douglas from the Trashcan Sinatras

And here’s one of my favorite songs by the Trashcan Sinatras. Brilliant, brilliant band.
