Owner of the JM Ballroom, Murdie Wallace, also had this short lived side project on the go in the 60's - a 7 inch single released on (surprise, surprise) JM Records. The record was released in April 1964, and as far as I know, it was the one and only record to be issued on this label.
It was a recording of local act, Hammy & The Hamsters, who were, Alex Hamilton (Dundee FC) and a few of his team mates. The record wasn't a football song though, it was a pop ballad aimed at the singles charts, so not particularly a tune for blue-nosers only.
I have actually done a piece about Hammy & The Hamsters on the Shrine, where you can also hear a sample of the song.
