Trashcan Sinatras were from Irvine/Kilmarnock and recorded in the 80s-90s. This track was probably their biggest commercial success. Expert exponents of the tongue in cheek and the jangly guitar, I saw them twice - once in Glasgow 1989, and once doing this impromptu live acoustic set during the Edinburgh Festival outside the Scottish National Gallery on The Mound https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1UgnpcHpvc I'd never seen this YT clip before, so lovely to see that moment in 1990 was captured for posterity   10

Remember the days when record shops had headphones in the aisles? I heard the first 30 secs and bought it.   3
