Blast From The Past: Del Amitri

If I had to pick just band that I wish had never stopped making music, it would have to be Del Amitri. Formed way back in 1983, this rock band from Scotland never quite gained the fame and fortune of its contemporaries such as Bon Jovi or Def Leppard. In my opinion, however, Del Amitri’s music was far better than the aforesaid.

Tell Her This, from their 1999 album Twisted, might be the best apology I’ve ever heard despite the word “sorry” never once being uttered. Twisted also contains Driving With The Brakes On, which is one of the band’s better-known songs.

If you’re feeling nostalgic, here are some of my favourite Del Amitri songs for you. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find any videos except for Kiss This Thing Goodbye (or high quality clips on Soundcloud), but all the ‘videos’ embedded below contain the songs in their entirety.
