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.

This Year's Ghost on Thrash Hits
January 23rd, 2014
Thrash Hits verdict: We first met This Year’s Ghost’s guitarist and lead songwriter, Paul McKenzie, in the pub. He had just tattoo’d a quite frankly obscene gesture onto one of our friends – his Day Job being a tattooist, that sort of thing comes with the trade – and he mentioned that he happened to be in a band. We dutifully went and checked them out, and yes sir, we were impressed. This Year’s Ghost have a fierce grunge heart, tempered with the progressive mindset of a young Biffy Clyro – making them one of 2014’s most interesting prospects. The band has just released their new Winter Earth EP, so we figured now was as good a time as ever to make McKenzie answer to our Future Hits interrogation.
