AAA’s Hottest Record Of The Week: The Filthy Tongues, Come On Home

The Filthy Tongues, who topped AAA’s Scottish Albums of the Year poll in 2016, are back with brand single Come On Home – and it’s our Hottest Record of the Week.

You can listen to it here.

Veterans of the Edinburgh indie scene, The Filthy Tongues have occupied a unique place at the heart of Scottish alternative rock in various manifestations since the mid-80s.

Martin Metcalfe, Fin Wilson and Derek Kelly were the core-members of Goodbye Mr Mackenzie, a stunning live band, with Metcalfe resembling the MC of a debauched, vaguely gothic cabaret, which effortlessly churned out pop classics, sinister dark blues and full-blown stadium-fitting anthems.

The band regularly attract five-star reviews and airplay on BBC6 Music.

The band also featured on the soundtrack to Skids’ frontman turned director Richard Jobson’s New Town Killers film and caught the ear of Hollywood in David Mackenzie’s film Spread.

Come On Home, which is taken from the recent album Back To Hell, was described by fellow music and culture website God Is In The TV Zine as sounding “like the acid imbued blues of Alabama 3”.

Check it out below.

The band have also unveiled two new shows supporting Sylvain Sylvain of New York Dolls:

 26/07: GLASGOW: Saint Luke’s 

27/07: EDINBURGH: Voodoo Rooms
