Glasgow's contribution to Australian and world music history

Post by Your Mom on Wed Sep 02, 2015 12:19 am

Glasgow is a dirty slum in Scotland, but is responsible for more Australian music hits than any other city in the world. Do you know any Glaswegians? I shared a house with one on and off for a number of years and have since perfected the accent after being called upon to translate into real English. (Glasgow was once named European city of culture and advertised 85 vacancies to translate Glaswegian English into real English for the many foreigners expected, especially the Japanese who had learnt BBC English, which is a million miles from what's spoken in Glasgow).

So, do you know any of these ex-pat Glaswegian rockers? No? I bet you do.
Let me compile a discography to show you.

George Young with the Easybeats (name sound familiar? It should)





George Young and Dutch born Harry Vander, both from the Easybeats, went on to form Flash and the Pan and write for some of the most successful Australians of their generation.



Does the dude in the black jacket look familiar? He should.

More from Flash and the pan.

So, who was George Young?

He was only the brother of the guitarist of this band and produced many of their albums.



The lead vocalist, Bon Scott, was also "coincidentally" born in Glasgow.

AC/DC began recording what would become Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap in January 1976 at Albert Studios with Harry Vanda and George Young (older brother of guitarists Malcolm and Angus) producing. In April, the band went on their first tour of the U.K. where "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)" was released as a single. According to the book AC/DC: Maximum Rock & Roll, Vanda and Young traveled to the U.K. to record several songs with the band at Vineland Studios for a scheduled EP, which was eventually scrapped. One of these songs, "Love at First Feel," would surface on the international Dirty Deeds release while the others, "Carry Me Home" and "Dirty Eyes," would remain unreleased, the latter being reworked into "Whole Lotta Rosie" on 1977's Let There Be Rock. A song titled "I'm a Rebel" was recorded at Maschener Studios as well with music and lyrics written by Angus and Malcolm Young's older brother, Alex Young.[6][7] This song was never released by AC/DC and remains in Albert Productions' vaults. German band Accept later released it as a single and named their second album after the song. In September, High Voltage was released in the United States but, hampered by visa problems and a disinterested Atlantic Records label in America, the band returned to Australia to finish their third album.

Though Bon Scott's mother criticised his singing in the shower, he certainly raised a mid digital salute to her and I always felt he was a far more accomplished vocalist than that Geordie, Brian Johnson, who was nothing but a screamer IMHO, even if the band found greater success with him as a front man..

Cold chisel never made the big time internationally, but were huge as a pub rock band in my disformative years. The

lead singer was born where? Oh, Glasgow!




Fuck me, Barnes looks so young in these clips

And then there was Jimmy's older brother, John Swann (kept his father's surname).

And then there's Glaswegians not necessarily associated with Australia.



However, the lead singer does have an unfortunate surname. Grogan is a euphemism for shit in Australia!

Though I had a modicum of success in the late 80s and early 90s, I am not from Glasgow and have never even been to Scotland!

Are you calling me a wanker?

The bleached blond cunt is not even Scottish; he's an English actor!

Brilliant movie, though!

I didn´t mean to infer you´re scottish, it was just the first thing to pop in my mind.
The few scotsmen I came to know were all pretty content being scottish, so it can´t be that shite after all.

All raging alcoholics tho...

That's not true, Frigg. I once heard a good song from the states, I think!

You seem to be quite up on your British slang as well as being a bit of a bell end your self. Do I give a fuck about your opinion? Quite frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.
