Och Aye The Noo – The Hogmanay Coontdoon Part 2

Gaberlunzie

When I was a wean you couldnae sit in front of the telly without some beardy, straggly haired Scotchman singing proper Scotch songs.  Proper Scotch songs I learnt at my mammys knee.  Before the Gaelic historical revisionist society took over the country and kicked the proper Scotch oot, to be replaced by caterwauling ballads aboot the Highland Clearance.

Which meant you goat loads o’ Silly Wizard, Gaberlunzie and their ilk.

And here are the legends that are Gaberlunzie wi’ a proper weans tune
Coulters Candy

I was amazed / shocked to discover that Gaberlunzie are still alive and well and here – http://www.gaberlunzie.com/
