Introducing: The Rosy Crucifixion
I don't know where you go for morbidly focused hillbilly garage music, but of course I go to Glasgow. That's right, Glasgow's The Rosy Crucifixion delivers crashing and twanging roots guitars, female vocals and garage ethos. My research indicates that the members of the band are Emily MacLaren, Stuart Evans, Andrew Power and Conal Blake. I don't believe that you'll find any records to purchase, but perhaps if you obsessively play their music the band will be encouraged to officially release some records.
Here are some demos, some or all of which appear on a compilation of current Glasgow music arranged by three of that fair city's indie labels. You'll hear thunder, twang, harmonies and surfy riffs. You'll be amazed, thrilled, and want more. You may look over your shoulder on the way home, as well.
