The band marked their greatest hits with “Seven Year Setlist”, a compilation album which was released in June 2o13.

As The View bid “Ta Ta For Now”, Gutter HQ has a throwback to their 5 Greatest Musical Moments . . .

5. “How Long?” 

The lead single from their fourth LP,“Cheeky For A Reason” was released in July 2012; the accompanying video featured Scottish actor and close pal of the band, Martin Compston. An infectious, frantic little number saw a return to form for the Dundee-born band and was reportedly inspired by Falconer’s then-girlfriend, Scottish singer, Carly Connor.

4. Face For The Radio

This entirely acoustic track showed a softer side to the somewhat rebellious, riotous band and was released in June 2007; the fifth single to be taken from their debut LP, “Hats Off To The Buskers”. While the single wasn’t a charting success, it has remained a firm favourite among the band’s legion of fans.

3. Grace

The second single taken from 2011’s “Bread & Circuses” failed to chart in The UK but was an upbeat, edgy number which featured Martin Compston in the accompanying video. The track was inspired by guitarist, Pete Reilly’s downstairs neighbours and their noise complaints against him. 

2. Shock Horror

February 2009 saw The View release, “Shock Horror”, the second single from their LP, “Which Bitch?” The slow-building single became an instant live favourite and is still a rousing part of their setlist to date.

1. Same Jeans

Taken from their debut LP, “Hats Off To The Buskers”, third single, “Same Jeans” is the band’s undisputed signature song relaying the experience of partying for days in end in the same clothes. The single is the band’s most successful single of their career.

Tickets for The View’s show at Glasgow’s 02 ABC on Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th November 2017 are available now, but LIMITED!
