Into Scottish Creatives: The Bluebells – Sisters

The Bluebells recently re-released their album Sisters via the Last Night From Glasgow record label. The album has been remastered, recut and features an alternative version of Everybody’s Somebody’s Fool as well as the addition of Aim In Life and Some Sweet Day which were not on the original release. John Welsh caught up with band members Robert Hodgens, Ken McCluskey, Dave McCluskey and Russell Irvine to talk about the album, track by track, as part of our Into Scottish Creatives series.

Four long-standing pals talking about an album they obviously have a genuine affection for…

In Part One the band talk about the tracks on side one of Sisters including different mixes, a Steve Wright faux pas, making mix tapes for Elvis Costello and the impact he made on the band.

 

 

In Part Two the band talk about the track on side two of Sisters including the politics that influenced the lyrics, appearing as the first ever unsigned band to appear on The Old Grey Whistle Test and working with Dominic Behan.

 

Sisters can be ordered from the Last Night From Glasgow website here or from Monorail Records HERE.
