The Proclaimers

Biography

The Proclaimers are proud of their Scottish identity in the same way that Billy Bragg was proud of his non-bespectacled Cockney one -- that is, they don't bother to hide it. This brother act couples gorgeous, brogue-filled, Everly Brothers style harmonies with snappy energy. Always engaging, whether on a country tune or an upbeat rocker, they remained critical darlings until the film Benny and June turned "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" into a Top-10 hit single five years after it was released on swell Sunshine on Leith (1988).
