If there’s something I always loved about Scotland, it’s their accent. It’s like speaking from someone out of Quebec when your French. It’s also a big issue for me, since my ears have an American accent as standard, and believe me there’s a huge difference between the two. That huge difference made me feel a bit confused when I first spoke to CLOCKED OUT, as I would have used a translater really.

They played in Strasbourg last April, with an Italian band called STORM {O}, and we oppened for them with one of my bands. Neat show. Those guys are crazy on stage and damn funny in general.

(NB: I’m not a geography teacher so forgive me if these bands do not actually cover the entire United Kingdom map like former punk bands in 1980s Finland for example).
