Aberdeen band Stanley play Mad Hatters, Inverness on the 12th of January.

Described by a contributor to their website as the “Best band in Aberdeen by a country mile, and there are a few very good bands up here”, however it is their own description that alludes best to their sound “if you were to take the intelligence of The Divine Comedy, the vision of John Barry, the creativity of Radiohead (circa “The Bends”) and the soaring vocal talents of Scott Walker you wouldn’t be far away. And that can’t be bad, can it?”.

Their debut album  “Animals with Amazing Disguises” was released in April last year and earned a mention in Vic Galloway’s favorite albums of the year (coming in at 42 only because of the alphabetical nature of the latter parts of the list).

The band will be supported by Fort William’ The Big Stumble. Doors 9 30pm.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at chris@igi.gs
