Glasgow’s local music scene suffered a great loss this week when The Imagineers announced that they are to call it quits.

The Glasgow based-band posted their decision on their Facebook page on Monday.

Formed in 2009, The Imagineers’ unusual brand of latin-inspired indie pop was a hit with both fans and critics alike. Their music was featured on CBS’ “The Late, Late Show” and this trans-atlantic exposure seemed set to propel the band to the big time.

However, 2 self-released EPs and a Kassidy support slot later, The Imagineers are no more.

If that wasn’t enough, another local favourite have also caught “calling it a day” fever; The Meatmen have also come to a premature end.

Known and loved in Glasgow for their “good-old fashioned rock ‘n’ roll”, The Meatmen have been causing a commotion since forming in 2008; delighting fans with their take on the rockabilly hits of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Buddy Holly and a few well-received originals in-between.

However, the band announced on Facebook on 23rd May 2013 that they would be calling time on the band, “We’ve had a fantastic five years, performed in some amazing places, and met some brilliant people, but unfortunately all good things must come to an end“.

The Meatmen play the last of their residencies tonight at Maggie Mays (6pm) and The Butterfly & The Pig (10pm).
