Your stories
...Every time they came on stage they would have a different line up with lots of cameos from Teenage Fanclub members, or Eugene Kelly, or John McCusker or various other luminaries of the Glasgow scene...
...They mean so much that I got a BMX Bandits tattoo put on my arm 5 years ago (I would hazard a guess that I am the only person in the world with one)...
...BMX Bandits are a bit like an old friend you haven't seen for years. You hear nothing from them for ages then you hear they're still around...
