The Magnificents met at Edinburgh Art College around the turn of the century. They were formed as a birthday present for a girlfriend and played a one off set of Northern Soul songs for their debut gig. People danced.
Deciding this could be the least degrading post art college career choice they carried on. Forgetting to write any songs the second gig was 20 minutes of disturbing noise and feedback involving gas masks and wheelchairs and eh, head shaving. People cried.
