The Strange Ones

I was thinking about how many Scots (Scottish) bands/musicians I could think of. Here's what I came up with:

DON"T READ THESE BEFORE YOU THINK OF YOUR OWN SCOTLISH BANDS!...Al Stewart
Rod Stewart - Londoner of Scottish descent
Belle & Sebastian
Frightened Rabbit
Aztec Camera
Big Country
Simple Minds
Gerry Rafferty - Irish Descent
David Byrne - (born in Glasgow)
Richard Thompson - Londoner of Scottish descent
Lonnie Donegan - Irish Descent
Billy Connolly - Irish Descent.. because some were English w/ Scots descent, and some were In Scotland but w/ Irish descent...

Britain is all mixed up. Morrissey and George Harrison might be considered Irish. And Paul McCartney could be Scots. Liverpool was largely a Northern Irish city set in England. So. They are all strangers... In strange lands...

I looked up Scottish bands, and was surprised by some... Like Dire Straits, and more... Here is the list... 

Can you think of at least 10 Scotlish bands?

Note: I am working in a theme or two to my journal lately. Can you guess what they are? They will be emerging as time goes by. (But they have nothing to do with my TIME post below)..
