The McCluskey Brothers are from Glasgow, Scotland. Ken and David McCluskey formed the band in 1986 after their departure from successful pop group The Bluebells. Marrying choppy guitar sounds and Celtic soulfulness, these siblings have a unique and intuitive understanding of melody, harmony and rhythm. Their sound and eclectic approach has influenced a goodly number of Glasgow-based bands. They recorded a critically-acclaimed album for Linn Records in 2000. It contained material from two previous albums, some self-penned material, along with lost Scottish folk songs.
