The Proclaimers, JP

When: Wed., April 24, 9 p.m. 2013


Unbeknownst to me, the Proclaimers have put out six records since 2001—that's more than Radiohead and Wilco. I was actually pretty happy to discover this. The brothers Reid are best known, of course, as the nerdy but loveable twins behind the hit "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)," which became soundtrack fodder and forever solidified their place as one-hit wonders, here in the US anyway. The Scottish duo are more like four-hit wonders elsewhere in the world, while generally being regarded as great pop-smiths. The Proclaimers' latest LP, Like Comedy, was released last year on Cooking Vinyl, and shows they can still deliver great quirky pop. So don't be that guy yelling out, "Play the 500 Miles song!" There's a good chance you'll be the only one. MARK LORE
