WE’RE ON THE MARCH WITH STEVIE’S ARMY! THE CUNDEEZ ANTHEM FOR THE SCOTLAND NATIONAL TEAM

Ready to banish all memories of 1978 Scotland have qualified for Euro 21 and to start off the campaign Dundee band The Cundeez present ‘Kilts On Taps Aff’. A football anthem to beat all other football anthems 6 (six)- 0!

This year members of the Scotland national team will have to find someone else to tend their gardens as they will be otherwise occupied! 2021 sees a rare summer outing for the Scotland national team and it’s only fitting that our favourite Scottish band The Cundeez should celebrate Scotland’s qualification for this years European Championships with a rockin’ Celtic-Punk number that’s sure to be a big hit among the Tartan Army and their fans in the Celtic-Punk scene.
Scotland narrowly missed out on automatic qualification for UEFA Euro 2020, but nail-biting victories in penalty shootouts in the play-offs against Israel and Serbia meant Scotland under the leadership of manager Steve Clarke were into their first major tournament since 1998.

Thirz an army massed, see the banners fly
Thirz a saltire set on a clear blue sky
The pipes fire up an wir on wir way
Oor time, oor place, this is oor day
*
Kilts on taps aff, Kilts on taps aff
Kilts on taps aff, Kilts on taps aff
*
Highs an lows we’ve had a few
Ups and doons but we’ll follow you
Fae the Highlands, islands, hills and glens
Fae the city streets. here we go again
*
Kilts on taps aff, Kilts on taps aff
Kilts on taps aff, Kilts on taps aff
*
Voice of the past, hear the Hampden Roar
The terrace chants singin’ “We want more!”
Itz in the blood, runnin’ through oor veins
The Celtic spirit they can never tame
*
Kilts on taps aff, Kilts on taps aff
Kilts on taps aff, Kilts on taps aff
*
Battle hardened an wir on the move
The Tartan Army gonna raise the roof
Thirz a Lion Rampant an a beatin’ heart
So come on boys, this is just the start
*
We’ll be backing Na H-Abhagan Breacan (The Tartan Terriers) through the tournament up to the final on Sunday 11th July and will be glued to our telly’s watching their games.

Monday 14 June: Scotland vs Czech Republic (3pm, Glasgow)

Friday 18 June: England vs Scotland (9pm, London)

Tuesday 22 June: Croatia vs Scotland (9pm, Glasgow)

The Cundeez don’t have a huge media machine or major record company backing, just the small but brilliant independent label Tarbeach Records based in New York so give a lads a hand to take over the Summer by sharing and, of course, purchasing. The track is available to download direct from Tarbeach via credit card or PayPal. The band recently released their fifth album Teckle And Hide which hit the dizzy heights of #4 in 2020’s London Celtic Punks album of the year.
“Bagpipe heavy Celtic-Punk that is never afraid to stray off into other genres. Possibly their most accessible album to date it still has their trademark fast, punchy, catchy Punk-Rock and the same shouty vocals delivered in that raw Dundee dialect but their Celtic and Ska influences see them moving into new territory without ever watering down their music or their identity.”
Teckle And Hide is available on CD and vinyl(download coming soon I am told!) from Tarbeach Records.
