The Aliens Bring You Songs In The Key Of Fife
Remember The Beta Band?
Well two members of that very same band have gone on to form a new band called The Aliens with one of Scotland's best singer songwriters Gordon Anderson (aka Lone Pigeon)
Fife and London based, their music is of the psychedelic electro rock variety. Hear a couple of tracks of The Aliens including their new single at their Myspace page below:

History of the boglin:
Boglins were a childrens toy born of the eighties. They were made until as recently as 2000 and have remained popular with children and 80's kids alike. A Scottish band called The Aliens used them once in one of their press photos and as a result sparked a resurgence in demand amongst music buyers for all things boglin. The impact of the boglin was unmistakeable and the original all seeing boglin now happily resides in The Aliens home.
