  • Slowjet (Iain Sloan's pre-Marshals band): "Black Cross" [Limited Edition CD single]

    Prior to 'moving to Wynntown' in 2007, Marshals' guitarist/pedal-steeler/vocalist Iain Sloan was part of 'slowjet' - an Edinburgh-based 3-piece - alongside bassist/vocalist Scott Tobin (now of Dropkick) and Andy Weir (formerly of Chickweed) on drums and vocals.

    Although not a million miles away from the sound of the current-day Wynntown Marshals (by virtue of Iain's guitar-playing and vocals no doubt), slowjet were perhaps more influenced by the likes of Teenage Fanclub, Matthew Sweet, Bob Mould/Sugar, Death Cab For Cutie, with a little slice of Foo Fighters thrown in now and again.

    Recently uncovered in the 'archives', the "Black Cross" CD-single is a strictly limited edition release, featuring Scott on lead vocals on the 'A-side' and Iain contributing lead vocals on the 'B-side' "Everything Around Me".

The Wynntown Marshals Edinburgh, UK

Formed in Edinburgh in 2007, The Marshals tip their hat to The Jayhawks, Wilco, Drive-By Truckers, Tom Petty, Ryan Adams & Neil Young.

Their sound can loosely be described as ‘country rock' with powerpop hooks, but they love layered guitars, catchy choruses and have an unabashed belief in the power of rock music as a storytelling medium.
