The Snuts

Musicians — West Lothian

Name, where are you from?
The Snuts, West Lothian.

Describe your style in three words?
Every day sh*t.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Too many to name. TRNSMT in Glasgow Green was pretty special for us - good to be together with everyone who matters. Arctic Monkeys were insane.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
Radiohead and The Smith’s. Only to crack a smile and remind them that everything is gonna be okay.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
General youth culture in our area is predominantly Ned culture, so we like to keep it real like that.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
Notorious B.I.G, showed the world you can be funky and chunky, all the while being a bad motherf*ucker. Mirrors my own motto in life.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
King Tuts is pretty special for us, felt like that's where we cemented ourselves at being the best at what we do. A straight-up historical venue, up there with the best Scotland has to offer. Strutting our stuff on that stage felt right.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
Nathaniel Rateliff. The guy conveys his pain through his songs like nobody else, heart on his sleeve kind of character.

The first track you played on repeat?
'You Can Do It' by Ice Cube. Got it on a Now compilation album when I first got a CD player. Proper back in the day.

A song that defines the teenage you?
'Don't Look Back Into The Sun' by The Libertines changed our lives collectively… not sure if for the better.

One record you would keep forever?
'Don't Let Me Down' by The Beatles.

A song lyric that has inspired you?
Full intro to 'Juicy' by Notorious B.I.G gets us in the vibe for a gig. "For all the teachers who told us we'd never amount to nothing."

The song that would get you straight on the dance floor?
Anything involving Nile Rodgers and his funk machine.

A song you wished you had written?
Not really… everything has its place in time musically - we keep it fresh.

Best song to turn up loud?
'Bits and Pieces' by GBX.

A song people wouldn’t expect you to like?
Bruno Mars' back catalogue.

Best song to end an all-nighter on?
For happy vibes, 'Chief Rocka' by Lords Of The Underground. For fear vibes, 'Hello Monday' by OCS.

Any new bands you are listening to right now?
'Fade Away' by Vida.
'Breakfast' by Anteros.
'Tough' by Lewis Capaldi. 
'San Francisco' by The Northern Threads.
