Alan McGee loves Glasvegas, so do we

Not one to brag, but witz.org does have an OK track record picking out bands that will become popular, but we are totally weak sauce compared to Alan McGee, who discovered and signed Oasis, Primal Scream, Jesus & Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, etc under his legendary Creation Records.

Lately, McGee has been raving on his Myspace page about a band named Glasvegas, saying:

“BEST NEW BAND IN YEARS.DOWNLOAD THERE MYSPACE TUNES.IT GOES BEYOND BEST NEW BAND FROM SCOTLAND.IT’S BEST NEW BAND FROM BRITAIN IN YEARS.THERE IS A VIDEO THEY ARE GOING TO PUT UP ON YOUTUBE ON FRIDAY DADDY’S GONE AN ACOUSTIC VERSION.TOTALLY ORIGINAL. JAMES ALLAN IS A SOLID GOLD EASY ACTION SONGWRITING GENIUS

Heavy praise, but not entirely undue – their songs can be download via the Glasvegas Myspace page or watch the video above. Like a train wreck of the Proclaimers, J&MC, and some Phil Spector side project. witz.org can’t stop listening to Daddy’s Gone, and neither will you.

We think, anyway.

More Alan McGee praise after the jump.
