Photo Credit: Gaz Williamson As you read these very words, the Snuts – yes, that’s the band’s name – are probably already old news in the UK. Their debut album, W.L., entered the charts over there at No.1 and achieved the identical feat in their native Scotland (the band hails from Whitburn in West Lothian)…. Read more
