Released for the first time on Precious Recordings of London,
the Soup Dragons’ four sessions for the BBC, two each for John Peel and Janice Long.
Destined for international pop fame via their cover of the Rolling Stones’ I’m Free, a Top 5 hit in the UK, and US Top 40 hit Divine Thing, the legendary Scottish popsters started out
with a barrage of spiky two-minute punk pop of a distinctly
Buzzcocks-y vintage – and all the better for that.
From the Glasgow suburbs of Bellshill and Bearsden, The Soup Dragons were an integral part of the city’s celebrated Splash One scene and favourites of the music press during the C86 era. However, their sound developed at a rate of knots, soon becoming more rocky before embracing the dance music influences with which they were to hit the charts as groundbreaking indie rock-dance artists.
