Glasvegas - Daddy’s Gone

"Hello Glasvegas, how are you?"

"Alright, we're grand, thank ye."

"Coping with the pressure of your hype alright?"

"Aye."

"Are you any good?"

"I dunnae. That's nae for us to say."

"Are these issues about abandonment true to your life experiences, or are they to create drama and pathos within your lyrics?"

"Why are ye turning this fake interview into a convoluted and pretentious way to review our track?"

"I don't know. If anyone reading this hasn't heard this song, then they should go on the interweb and tap out the word 'Glasvegas' with their little fingers. Go on. Right now. The spirit of old Spector girl groups channelled through the sadness of parental negligence. A hype band that deserve their hype, this is likely to provide a deserved hit song. The lyrics manage to raise the day to day issues of life above the usual 9-5 grind of other - hands up The Enemy. Passionate, epic, and poised for some kind of indie stardom. Grandeur and splendour."

"Thank ye."

"One more thing. Why the shit name? I mean, it's not even clever."
