Davie Martin will be welcoming competition winning band Fags ‘n’ Matches on the Sunday Session this week.

Fags N Matches were pronounced the Edinburgh Evening News’ “Search For A Star” winners in 1972 by Hughie Green. They haven’t played together for 35 years but they’ve been persuaded our of retirement for a charity gig this October at Finnegan’s Wake.

Although the band name lived on, the original competition line up hasn’t played together since the mid 70’s. They will be joined by other local groups to perform for charity and say they are looking forward to playing a rehearsing soon.

Davie gets Sunday Sessions going at 8am every Sunday morning. He told the web team that Fags n Matches are due into the studio around 10am.
