The Bank Street Martyrs releases "I Love You Molly Mandy"
originally published: 12/06/2023
The Bank Street Martyrs are a rock band who have been inspired by the people and the place to bring you the rhythm and blue collar sound of urban Scotland. "I Love You Molly Mandy" is the second single from the band's forthcoming second album, Dormitory Town.
The song references an iconic Ladies Lingerie shop in Alexandria, Vale of Leven, West Dunbartonshire that existed through the 70s and early 80s. It was a place of intrigue and fascination for many a young lad that brightened up a post industrial landscape.
In the song, Molly Mandy materialises as an actual person in a reimagined town centre - A French Quarter. Andy Marsland provides a classic bluesy jazz backdrop and some powerful vocals to bring Molly and the French setting to life. The tongue in cheek atmosphere is reinforced with some spoken "local" french accent by the song’s lyricist Ian Retson.
The Bank Street Martyrs are a threesome, one vocalist (Joseph Montenegro Watema), one musician (Andrew Marsland) and one poet (Ian Morris Retson).
"I Love You Molly Mandy" is out now on all streaming platforms.
