A Sunny Day In Glasgow - Scribble Mural Comic Journal

Let's claim this as Scottish even if it is, y'know, American

Album Review by Ally Brown | 09 Aug 2007
Album title: Scribble Mural Comic Journal
Artist: A Sunny Day In Glasgow
Label: Notenuf
Check the weather, take a day off, head for Byers Road, bring your best headphones, lie on the Botanical grass, fire up your MP3 player. OK, a CD player will do, and yes you can sit on The Meadows instead. A Sunny Day In Glasgow are from Philadelphia, but remember with affection the enhanced value of the sunshine in a city where the sun don't always shine. Scribble Mural Comic Journal is like Panda Bear but it drones and disorientates, rather than preens and charms; it's like Ulrich Schnauss but muddier, and livelier. Skip a couple of the later tracks if you wish, which are more tech-impressive than heart-oppressive – and then claim it as Scottish. After all, you've been hearing the Cocteau Twins and the Mary Chain in this too, and then there's the all-important back-story, if not, y'know, the actual origin. Wave your saltire, put your 'phones back on, turn up the volume, lie in the sun. Let yourself smile, and make the most of it. [Ally Brown]
