Biography

Starting out as swooning indie outsiders who supported The Smiths and self-financed their own tours, Del Amitri developed a cleaner, radio-friendly soft rock sound that made them one of Scotland's most successful bands of the late 1980s and early 1990s. Led by Glasgow school friends Justin Currie (vocals, bass) and Iain Harvie (guitar), the group took the jangly melodies of the 1960s guitar bands, added new wave edge and folky storytelling and built a keen following when second album Waking Hours (1989) reached Number 6 in the British charts. They never scored a massive UK hit, but singles Nothing Ever Happens, Spit In The Rain, Driving With The Brakes On and Always The Last To Know became fan favourite singalongs and Roll To Me made it to Number 10 in the US. With their jovial, upbeat, warm acoustic feel albums Change Everything (1992), Twisted (1995) and Some Other Suckers Parade (1996) all made the UK Top 10 and the band memorably penned the Scotland Football team's 1998 World Cup song Don't Come Home Too Soon, before splitting in 2002.
