One of Scotland's most iconic rock bands Goodbye Mr Mackenzie have reformed following on from the success of their 30th anniversary shows celebrating their debut album “Good Deeds and Dirty Rags”. 2020 will see the band release a career retrospective documentary and live album and they have already started work on a new studio album expected for release in 2021.
As The List said in their 50 Greatest Scottish Bands review:
“The Mackenzies left behind the most complex and fascinating footprint of any Scottish Band. Live they were stunning. Lead singer Martin Metcalfe looked like the MC of a particularly debauched cabaret troupe. While their Scottish counterparts were looking at Soul and Steeleye Dan for inspiration the Mackenzies were taking theirs from the Pixies and the Birthday Party.”
