Following a re-acquaintance of sorts with music from a few years back, one band in particular stood out from the pack, Glaswegian two-piece Sluts of Trust. The duo released their one and only album We Are All Sluts of Trust in 2004 and what’s most striking apart from their near disappearance from the face of the earth is the how fresh the album still feels. There are few if any rock bands out there to match the filthy, sleazy, raucous and somewhat perverse sound.
In the aftermath of the release of their album they made a number of festival appearances and embarked on tours, including support for Bloc Party but from 2007 all has been quiet with front man John McFarlane making a few low-key solo acoustic appearances. At one of which in early 2008 he played a full set of new material and announced his intention to return with a new Sluts of Trust album later in the year, but that’s the last heard of it.
It’s a real shame, undoubtedly talented let’s hope we haven’t heard the last from Sluts of Trust.You forgot a username for the YouTube shortcode
