First n Stripes - Scottish Rock
First n Stripes, these are 3 Scotsmen who live for one dream: enhance the music.
Magnificent guitar, angry bass, catchy lyrics, charming vocals and a tireless drummaster render them to an irresistible drug. The frontman Eric Stripes, the bassist Ian McMarthy and the headknocker Roger McFirst are forming a virtuoso, smashing unit, nobody can resist.
As they excel, they inspire and exhaust their audience.

current album

"Street of Mud, the henceforth 5th studio album of the scottish rockband First n Stripes is a marvelous piece of art. Eric Stripes the ever-present frontman delivers an outstanding vocal performance paired with strong but likewise delicate guitarplay. He sets the stage and invites us all to a tremendous and entertaining voyage in a land full of wonders and frivolous things. He is reliably accompanied by the stunning drumman Roger McFirst who plays his drums like he's never done anything besides. Ennobled with a dreamlike bass and an outstanding mastering this album truly is rendered a magnus opus." - Scottish Music Week 08/18
