Glasvegas demanded that the NME stop printing lies about them.
Or did they? It’s doubtful. The soulful Scottish band have moved from heights to heights with their uplifting music and critical praise.
Formed around 2003, by 2011 they’ve released two albums and after several earnest tours have stated they refuse to be beaten by American indifference, vowing; ‘we will break the States’.
Trebuchet photographer Carl Batson captured the young band in motion on the 24th of October at London’s premiere serviceman’s establishment KOKO.

Harley Davidson pretending to be in Terminator 2. He is also frequently seen in
the press pits of old London town, camera in hand, avoiding being hit by bottles
of wee and crippling his opposition with secret Kung Fu moves.
