This has been a big week for the United Kingdom. The people of Scotland voted in a historic referendum to decide whether or not they wanted to become an independent country. As you no doubt heard about in the wider media, the vote was split 55/45 in favour of remaining in the Union with the other home nations. We didn’t want to let such a momentous event in our nation’s history go by without some acknowledgment, hence why we’ve made a Sunday Spotify Slaylist of some of our favourite Scottish bands.
Formed in 1988, The Almighty are a rock band, from Glasgow Scotland.
The band's music veered between punk and hard rock on albums including 1989's debut 'Blood Fire and Love', 'Soul Destruction (produced by Duran Duran guitarist Andy Taylor),' 'Powertrippin' (which saw Tantrum leave and be replaced by Pete Friesen of Alice Cooper), 'Crank' and 'Just Add Life.' During this time, the band played the Monsters of Rock festival in Donington, England, in 1992 and also played with Metallica at the Milton Keynes Bowl. The Almighty split up in 1996.
