Critically acclaimed Scottish indie rock band from Glasgow, formed in 1990.

Arguably now a spent force, ac acoustics briefly flirted with a breakthrough in the mid-late 1990s. They were widely championed by the music press and by peers such as [a=Placebo].

At their peak they combined dense, fuzz-heavy riffage with cryptic, poetic lyrics, before later introducing keyboards and moving into a sparser, more repetition-based direction. Initially, they owed a debt to the [a=Jesus And Mary Chain, The] - blending furious white-noise with early [a=Pavement]-style experimentation and augmenting their two guitar, bass and drums instrumentation with saxophones and violins.
