The Proclaimers, Lochgelly Theatre:

The Reid brothers from Auchtermuchty had just hit the big time after appearing on Channel 4’s ‘The Tube’ and their debut album was getting huge interest.

Back then it was just the two of them on stage, singing in their strong Scottish accents.

They needed a band, and the first time they played with one was at Lochgelly.

The place was packed out – I recall sitting on the steps at the very back - and suddenly Craig and Charlie had a new fully-rounded sound. One which would go on to define their careers.

The perfect place to dip their toe into unchartered waters.
