Iconic Edinburgh band Goodbye Mr Mackenzie are reforming to celebrate the 30th anniversary of debut album Good Deeds and Dirty Rags, which they will play in its entirety at three gigs in Scotland in May.
One of the most acclaimed bands ever to rise through the ranks of the Edinburgh music scene, the Mackenzies last played together at The Garage in Glasgow in 1995 – and they are returning to very same venue for the first night of their 2019 tour, before stopping off in Aberdeen and Edinburgh.
“The band is very happy to announce we are reforming to perform our Good Deeds and Dirty Rags UK chart album in its entirety,” said the band in a statement. “This album was a very important part of our lives and we’re looking forward to doing it justice on stage again.”
Goodbye Mr MacKenzie released their first album, Good Deeds and Dirty Rags, in 1989. It entered the UK charts at No.16 and the band quickly attracted a large, loyal support north of the border.
Incredible live shows and singles like the Rattler further cemented a fond place in many a Scottish heart. A colourful and varied career followed.
