Gordon MacIntyre of the wonderful Ballboy has been releasing weekly lockdown recordings on his Bandcamp page, and the latest one has a new song called Partick Thistle!

Fast forward to about 17:45 at the following link for an intro and the song:

Time is owing me eight weeks, three days and counting so a few minutes spent listening to Long Intro Man hardly counts :).

That’s a bit harsh, could you do better?

I like it.

Never quite understood this comeback of can you do better! Essentially what you are saying is people cannot have an opinion unless they can do the same or better. It is better than that pish T.H.I.S.T.L.E abomination i grant you that but wouldn't be outta place on that Thistle CD alongside Tiger Tims crap.

I liked the "Yellow when the sun comes up, Red when the sun goes down" part, but it did seem to be condemning us to a permanent yo yo existence.

I very quickly get bored by singers' long introductions to their songs, but once he got started on the music I  really quite liked the guitar and singing, especially the yellow-up red-down hook. But I think it would have been better with some more lines and much less repetition of what lines there were.

It would have been simple to work in a "Firhill" somewhere, as it (kind of) rhymes with Thistle.

Anyway, well done to the Hibee.

Here's another one, updated for the times:

Oh when the Jags, go marching in

When the Jags go marching in

I want to be in that number

But I can't because of social distancing
