Glenrothes, nothing to do wi music but was there a bowling alley there called The Alma Bowl?
I always remember it as The Fraser Bowl but I think it was Alma at some point . It was shut for years but reopened a couple of years back

Used to be good upstairs at the weekend in the old days , locally always known as "the bowling alley" regardless of it's official name
Ah what's in a name anyway. As long as it was good that's the main thing.
If you're from Fife have you heard of the Half Circle in Burnt island or the Kiunze Neuk in Kinghorn. The Half Circle burnt down probably an insurance job.

Never heard of that one. Only used to travel through to the other ones from Edinburgh cos my mate who I worked beside in Leith shipyard used to live in Burntisland. Had some great nights there back in the late 70s.

Graham Parker and the rumour.
Saw them twice brilliant.
Think they only had a couple of minor hits. Protection and Local girls.
I bought Heat Treatment back in the day.
Listened to it every day for months.
I listened to it last week and got bored witless after half a song.
Funny how someone's taste can change.

In one way I quite like that perhaps only me and about 10 thousand others only liked a band.I remember how put out I felt when Simple Minds went huge.To think that I saw them supporting Magazine and my brother interviewed them for a post punk fanzine he was puting out.
I was at that gig, clouds I think.

Think I've looked it up a few times.Being from the Weedge I must have seen them quite a few times.I remember seeing them in the Gateway Studios doing a TV show.They were introducing new tunes including I Travel.They once did a three day stint up the Nite Club,I went all three nights.

Crispy Ambulance,A Certain Ratio,Wolfgang Press.There was a whole heap of bands that I thought were going to be be big but never made it past cult status.Prefab Sprout?I think they got a top 20 hit.Not too shabby.
A Captain Ratio inevitably always got compared to Joy Division back in the day but that first (proper) album To Each is one of my all time favourites.

Crispy Ambulance - that’s a blast from the past. Wolfgang Press too - that single Kansas was perfect pop.

I thought The Chameleons never got the recognition they deserved but Its Immaterial.

I remember seeing them as Johnny & The Self Abusers right here in Glenrothes many moons ago
Used to be a good band from Glenrothes called Veldt named after a Simple Minds song. There was also a 7” EP of four Glenrothes bands - probably still have it somewhere.

Beat Necessity would be on there I imagine , I know quite a few of those involved .

Beat Nessesity formed in 1979 in Glenrothes, UK.
The original line up was Andrew Meikle, Eddie Farrell and Alistair Sneddon. Practicing in Eddies bedroom they entertained the whole of Pitteucher with original material and a few covers including tracks from the Iggy Pop Idiot album. The longest serving line up was Andrew Meikle, Eddie Farrell, David Robinson, Jim McMinn and Kevin Mullen.
Beat Necessity joined forces with 3 other bands from Glenrothes in 1979 to release a DIY EP on Newtown Products. NTP 1 featured : Crimedesk (Arms Race), Basic Unit (Ladder), Beat Necessity (Just Fine) and Story So Far (Radiated).
Newtown Products released two more. NTP 2 featuring Veldt and Beat Necessity. NTP 3 featuring Beat Necessity.
A fanzine (Intrepid Anorak) was also produced - copies are rare!
The song "Clocks" is performed by Good and Gone featuring Eddie Farrell, Alistair Sneddon and Andrew Loughrey. This featured on the Good and Gone "Methil Box " 12" released in 1987 on Demon Radge, recorded by Lee McPhail and Peter Haig (Pierhouse Studios Edinburgh
