I'm trying remember the name of a band frpm Scotland. Three piece band. Bass player sang lead vocs. The only song I remember has the lyrics: "Why did it have to rain today. Why? I'd really like to know. This country's cursed with stormy weather and it's always cold."
Does this ring a bell with anyone???
Please email me if it does and you know their name @
Thanks much.
