Here Comes Everybody

I've just put my copy of Here Comes Everybody up for sale on ebay, as a) I don't have a record deck any more so it seems right to let it go to someone who'll get more enjoyment out of it and b) frankly, times are tough and I need the money! I've got a few other H&C related bits and bobs that I'll put up in the coming weeks too.

2nd Nov: Pre-order LIVE WIRE!

What a year that's been for us, travelling far and wide!



From cosy wee halls to mud-caked mega-festivals...From shaking our tail-feathers on Celebrity Big Brother & Gabby Logan, to playing with Jools Holland, the Average White Band & the Titanic's chamber orchestra... From intimately sharing our back catalogue with fans, to blasting out Hot Wire's funk groove into bouncing, sweaty halls... 2012 has been a busy, exhausting but exhilarating year for us brothers Kane.…

2012 was it a very good year??

Struggling to know what to make of 2012 as a Hue and Cry fan.

The Hotwire weekend in Glasgow was superb, with the Q&A being particularly enjoyable but the gig in London was a little disappointing for me, something just didn't feel right that night, can't put my finger on it but It wasn't what I expected. I'm sure it was nothing to do with the band though.

There was the pride, should I be proud??!! I'm just a fan after all?... when the guys performed on Jools Holland Radio 2…

24th Oct: Michael Marra

We're very sad to hear of the passing of Michael Marra, it's a great artistic and personal loss. He's inspired us for many years, our condolences to his family and friends. We've been singing his classic Mother Glasgow for over a quarter of a century now, and every audience we play for demands that song, so beautiful and profound is its message.



STV news caught us in rehearsals this afternoon to get our thoughts on one of Scotland's greatest ever songwriters and performers, and will… Continue

Hue and Cry at the Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh, 22 October 2012

It made me sad to realise that my last visit to see Hue and Cry must have been in the late 80s (when of course I was around 2 years old) but despite their often outspoken views I was a big fan then and always loved Pat’s singing voice so when I saw that they were playing in Edinburgh, I decided to give it a shot.  A relatively cheap “PlatinumPass” convinced me to fork out a bit more than expected and the itinerary for the day read as follows:

4.00: VIP Reception, collection of…

In Dundee we have Kit Clark, in Aberdeen, Oliver Richards and in Inverness we have Sienna Lights opening the show.

Hue and Cry lyrics in everyday situations

Quite often I get a random Hue and Cry lyric popping into my head. In particular it's whenever I go to pay for something online or go to a cash machine.....

"I've got the card, delivers the goods".

It happens quite lot. Anyone else get H&C lyrics in unexpected places?
