The search is on to list the 100 greatest Fife bands ever ... and you have a vital role to play!

Each year it celebrates the greatest people to emerge from the Kingdom and acknowledges their contributions in many different fields.

For 2014 we plan to reveal - for the very first time - the 100 greatest bands ever to emerge out of the Kingdom ... and we want your nominations.

Everyone knows about the worldwide success of bands such as The Proclaimers, Nazareth and Big Country, to name but three, but Fife has also nurtured a network of outstanding local talent across the decades.

Our supplement plans to celebrate the best of the best - from the bands which starred in the war-time days when the dance halls were king to those who supported the world’s biggest acts as they came to town in the 1960s and 70s, and on to the current era.

And then there are the bands who have played week in, week out in local clubs and bars, building strong, loyal followings.

They are all eligible to be included in our long list which is currently being compiled before our panel of judges has the tricky task of choosing 100 and then a definitive top ten before unveiling the band we crown the greatest.

If you would like to nominate a group - sorry, no individual singers/performers - then please email or comment here or on our Facebook page at by January 25.

‘‘The FP100 - the greatest Fife bands ever!’’ will be published early in the New year
