Songs In The Key Of Fife
The Tam Tam Club were formed in Glenrothes, Fife after a piece of the Scottish new town's public art - a stone dinosaur known locally as Rexie, was moved from its original location in a housing scheme to an inhospitable spot on a busy roundabout. This unpopular move caused an uproar in the local press and The Tam Tams have been tireless campaigners for town art ever since. This album documents their obsession/dedication to their cause and the people of Glenrothes.

We Mean Something
There is much strange stuff occuring on our little planet. And Tommy Mackay is determined to record it all for posteriority. From people pretending to die in canoes, newsreaders with uncontrollable flatulence and bike shaggers, to New Year bathers, E-bay obsessives and dog excrement cooks. All human life is here and it all means something. Doesn't it?

Do The Loony Dook
There's an old tradition in South Queensferry dating back to the 1980s called the Loony Dook, in which hundreds of people jump into the Firth Of Forth on New Year's Day. This year, I took part in this clearly ridiculous pastime and after drying off, decided it needed a song named after it. It's a Cheap Trick, but someone has to do it. 'Do The Necessary' also mentions South Queensferry, which is why it's tacked on.
