Song of the Week #5 (2020) – The Pictish Trail

However, on the evidence of the latest single ‘Lead Balloon’, new album ‘Thumb World’, out today on Fire Records, is going to be the one that clicks.

To celebrate, here’s the video for ‘Lead Balloon’:

Johnny takes the current incarnation of the live band out on the road in March and April with Scottish dates as follows:
