PROFILE: The Nectarine No.9

Fresh from playing a triumphant reunion gig at Oran Mor as part of Celtic Connections called Bent Meltdown (in tribute to their record label and John Peel curated-Meltdown) alongside The Secret Goldfish and The Leopards, and with the re-release of classic 1995 album Saint Jack , Edinburgh band The Nectarine No.9 seem to be having something of a moment- again.

Their witty, iconoclastic post-punk remains as fresh as ever, due in no small way to contemporary bands like Savages, Sauna Youth and Trash Kit, whose influences are similar.

Frontman Davy Henderson is something of an indie legend- erstwhile Fire Engine and founder of Marc Riley faves The Sexual Objects, he’s not one to rest on his derriere for too long- not while there’s snarky, fuzzy punk-pop to be made.
