Tom McGuire & The Brass­holes on whistlestop tour of sub­way

Evening Times - - NEWS -

SUB­WAY pas­sen­gers were given an un­ex­pected mu­si­cal ac­com­pa­ni­ment to their jour­ney yes­ter­day.

Glas­gow band Tom McGuire & The Brass­holes sneaked on to the pub­lic trans­port sys­tem to de­but some of their new al­bum.

Act­ing without prior per­mis­sion, the cheeky mu­si­cians trav­elled on to the un­der­ground one at a time to avoid arous­ing sus­pi­cion.

De­scrib­ing them­selves as an eclec­tic, mod­ern­soul-funk band, the eight-piece group per­formed on the anti-clock­wise loop of the sub­way.

The band, headed up by Tom, say they “earned their stripes on Sauchiehall and Buchanan Street as buskers dur­ing Glas­gow’s 2014 Com­mon­wealth Games, and have slowly been work­ing their way up the stair­case of suc­cess, be­com­ing one of Scot­land’s most vi­brant live acts.”

The group’s de­but self-ti­tled al­bum is due for re­lease this month.
