Subject: Searching for name of the artist
From: GUEST,flintcount
Date: 26 May 15 - 03:15 PM

Hi guys, i have a problem. I'm searching for artist which i heard somewhere and i've got one mp3 from this guy - but there were no band name or song name. That's the video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2i_tPkLe1Y. I can't find this guy for 6 months.
Things i discovered: - he is Scottish - he isn't old, must be between 30-40 i think
I've found two more songs on my pc:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EfABzA-vCw
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0laVRQz1t00

I'll be very grateful if you can help me. Sorry for my english, i don't know if it is bad or good, i live in Poland.

Where/who did you get the mp3 from?
That would seem the most likely route to finding who and what it is.

I don't recognise the singer or the songs, and googling some of the phrases didn't bring up anything- presumably self-composed songs.

Good luck.

idk
but have you done a google search for
the name of the file?

Searched your browser history?
Would the mp3 be dated when you received it or when it was created?

If you end up reposting this question you might get a better response if you include a bit more in the title, like Does anyone recognise this 1970s Scottish male folk/blues singer please.

If you can, type out some of the lyrics.
And mention why/if it is so important to you.

I don't know what it is. It sounds like a riddle, But when i hear this music, i feel strong. My soul is dancing. That's my artist, that's the song which i'd like to have on my funeral.

This song (click here) is certainly one of the ones you've linked to. It's sung by Matt McGinn.

Listening to his voice, he could be person on your recording, and the arrangement sounds similar as well. Have a listen and see what you think.

The voice on your clips doesn't sound like Matt McGinn's, it's deeper and more sonorous - even though Bainbo has posted one of the songs being sung by Matt McGinn. (Who sadly died over 30 years ago). Sounds like someone trying to copy him maybe.

I agree with Tattie Bogle tat the singer on the clips in post 1 is definitely NOT Matt McGinn, an old friend. Bainbo's clip IS of Matt. I do not know who the imitator is but probably some "exile" Scot living in America who makes a living imitating Scottish singers, rolling is "RS", probably wears a kilt. America and Australia are full of them. The Irish suffer the same fate.

I'm not so sure the singer is Scottish. I mean he could be putting on an American accent in the third song. I wouldn't be surprised though if it is more of an American putting on a Scottish accent in the first two songs! The rolling r's just sound too pronounced and forced. Whether he is American or Scottish he seems to be trying to sound like Matt McGinn except for in the third song of course!

You've had several Scots including myself suggest that the singer doesn't really sound Scottish. Scotland is a small country and the folk community is quite well known to each other. Had he been a Scottish singer who was known in any way then I'm sure somebody (ie especially the likes of Jack) would know of him! I think North America is a better bet though even at that if he is someone who is only known in his home town etc then it may be a long shot. The guy might only have made several home made vids and not be a gigging musician.

Flincount that has been a month none of the Scottish contributors or anyone else for that matter have recognised the person. Unless someone who actually knows the person stumbles across this thread your question is unlikely to be answered in the way you wish.

Time to try other places. Keep a note of the thread title and every few months if you have not been lucky elsewhere check back by placing the threat title in the filter box and choosing your time scale.

Yes to what Megan L suggests, assuming she means 'thread title'...;-)

Maybe, if you can't track down this particular artist :-( you could ask what similar artists mudcatters would suggest. Apart from these three examples at the moment we don't know what sort of / names of other music you enjoy or reject.

My hunch is that the recordings are a few decades old and not many people in the whole world will know of him now.

And I'll ask again, can you or have you gone back through your browser history PAGE BY PAGE round the time you think you downloaded these tracks?

I was niggled by the thought that it might be Watt Nicoll -- a Scottish singer and writer of (mainly) comic songs in the late 60s and 70s. I was never familiar enough with his repertoire to recognise these tracks posted here, but there is some material on Youtube.

After a while he seemed to disappear from the scene, but I believe he went to the US and trained as a motivational speaker (and maybe even a hypnotist?), working there for many years. Within the past three or four years he reappeared in Britain with the focus on his consultancy work.

I tried to look him up on Wikipedia but didn't get too far….

Sorry Anne - fairly certain it's not Watt Nicoll, but a good suggestion. No Dundee enough ! He was known professionally as "The Man", and I believe at one point was brought in to motivate the Scottish football team at a World Cup. No' one of his most successful results, I think.

If you are a tourist
Or just passin thro
You'll need eyes in the back o yer heid
Tae see me comin thro

He'll never gie in
The whisky drinkin man
Wi his bagpipes on his shoulder
He serenades hi crew.... His clan

He'll watch ye fae the hilltops
He'll watch yer every move
You'll get nae peace
Till we're finished wi you

He'll never gie in
The whisky drinkin man
Wi his bagpipes on his shoulder
he serenades hi clan.... His clan


Get yersel some distance      ?
Gie yersel a chance    ?
Once ye hear the bagpipes play
Ye'll ken i'm comin doon

He'll never gie in
The whisky drinkin man
Wi his bagpipes on his shoulder
He serenades hi clan.... His clan

And it's NOT Archie Fisher -- or Battlefield.

The style is more punchy and vigorous, along the lines of Gaberlunzie (although they were a duo, rather than a solo turn).
And the text is more direct/less subtle than anyone Scottish would expect from the two performers named.

Pretty sure it's the band that go by the name 'Longshot Nelson and the Disjoints', who seem to be a contemporary band, despite the retro sound. How did I figure it out? Answer: I spent fifteen seconds on Google looking for a band that does a lot of Matt McGinn covers... Here are a couple of their other tracks for comparison:

Chris, I think you've cracked it -- but I begin to wonder about the purpose of the original post…...

Thats a bit of a find. A mixture of covers, traditional, and his own stuff. Listen free then download for 50p per track. They are from Ayrshire, and maybe slightly bonkers. Flintcount has done us, and hopefully them, a favour.

Thanks Chris well googled
Listened to the tracks ... could be ive written on their face book page to ask

Slight thread drift
I sometimes brainstorm w remotely possible answers in the hope that my good humoured team members will contradict me with the right answers and it has a roughly 60% success rate by triggering the reply "thats nonsense" its "xxxxx" from the hidden depths of their memories.

I'm struggling to get my head round this.

'Creative Recluse' at
nelsonschainsaws.tumblr.com/ says he is... "Also known as JB Nelson, Sleepy Eyes Nelson and Longshot Nelson."
It would be interesting to know what his real name is.
I wonder if anyone in Scotland has seen him performing?
There are vids of him at the State Bar Glasgow & Jazz Bar Edinburgh(see his YT uploads page)

'Sleepy Eyes' Nelson seems to do American bluesey tracks
www.facebook.com/sleepynelson
'Longshot' Nelson does Scottish tracks
'JB' Nelson does Gothic Americana,Dark Country,Alternative, Experimental stuff.

and also lists
The God Channel : Experimental - Noise - Industrial
Sundowner    : Synth Pop - Industrial - Dark Soundtrack

He operates a small record label   cheapwinerecords.bandcamp.com/
which lists other artists. I wonder how many are him too. I have asked btw.

His YouTube page has an 'About' saying he is base in Scotland www.youtube.com/user/nelsonschainsaws/about
& lots of uploads.
Here are a few for comparison :
Early, as an un-named band, with melodica The Stranger

Longshot Nelson Matt McGinn Cover - The Rolling Hills O' The Borders -

Sleepy Eyes Nelson i couldn't buy beer

JB Nelson gunsmoke trail

Sleepy Eyes Nelson & Slate Dump(who, to me, looks like it might be the guy in 'The Stranger' ?) Down The Line Blues -

Got a reply from Logshot Nelson and the Disjoints

So this whole thread has been a covert promo for a 'contemporary band' with it's own recording label. Am I wrong in thinking that legs have been pulled?

And after 7 months... Finally. I don't know how to thank you all. I don't know what to say, because I'm completely stunned... You've done great job. That's interesting, because i've found him last night accidentaly and decided to write here about him. But when i saw that one day before you've found it too... It's just impossible.

Thank you for help. Thank you for something, that i can't descript by words. It's one of the biggest treasures i have.

Kind regards,
Flintcount from Poland
