The Modests show that bleeding disorders need not be a bar to musical success

Haemophilia Scotland member, Daniel McGuigan’s band, The Modests, are playing in The Hard Rock Cafe, Edinburgh this Friday this Friday from 10pm.

They are a ‘Psychedelic’ rock and roll band described as “Pixies meets The Doors…” and are based in Glasgow so this is a great chance to see them over on the East.

We’ve put a clip of their recent appearance on STV Glasgow playing Geneva on our Facebook Page.  For those of you who haven’t liked us on Facebook yet we thought we’d share a different track, Completely Twisted, in the clip above.

Derek Forbes of Simple Minds & Big Country has been reported as describing The Modests as ‘the next big thing to happen in Scottish music scene.’  So this is your chance to see them before they are famous.

Musical talent seems to be a associated with the bleeding disorders in Scotland.  Many of you will already have heard Andy Gunn play.  We are wondering how many more musical talents we have in community?
