The Delgados

The DelgadosThis group, named after Spanish cyclist Pedro Delgado, have played an important role in the Scottish music scene, launching several careers, including Bis and Arab Strap, through their label Chemikal Underground.
As musicians they typified the lo-fi Scottish indie sound, particularly on their first album 'Domestiques', which prompted Peel to call them 'the best in Britain, whilst their 1998 single 'Pull The Wires From The Wall' went to the top of that year's Festive Fifty. They later moved into more orchestral rock, working with former Flaming Lips producer Dave Friddman for the albums 'The Great Eastern' and 'Hate'. Their most recent release was 2004's 'Universal Audio'.
