SCOTT PRESTON OF REVOLT

Here's a familiar face (and jacket) from Dundee's punky past - it's Scott Preston.
The photo is from around 1980 when he was roadie for the Scrotum Poles. In fact this is him having a wee rest during one of their practice sessions.
Scott himself ended up fronting a band called Revolt a couple of years later.
The item under the photo is from Cranked Up, and features Jock Ferguson in a witty mini interview with Scott and the rest of the lads in Revolt - Jojo, Segs & Spike.
Don't dare say they're "a punk band" though or you're in for it..!!
After Revolt he was in Under The Sun.
Scott died in 2006.
Big thanks to Craig

  5. After Revolt the band became Lamort, which was basically Revolt minus Jojo on guitar. More Birthday Party influenced than Sex Pistols.

  6. Very sad to hear. Scott was a good guy, you always felt welcome on his company. I'd always thought of him as the type of guy who'd always be around.
