U made me like it

Brother and sister John and Jane McKeown are the crown prince and princess of Glasgow pop muzik... although they're actually from Uddingston or something. Blame it on Lanarkshire. John used to be in the Yummy Fur and Jane was in Lung Leg. Both bands had a string of indie releases throughout the 90s. Now John's called Jackie and is fronting a trio called 1990s. They just put out their second album, 'Kicks', on Rough Trade. I couldn't find any videos from that so this is from their first LP, 'Cookies'. It was also a car commercial I believe. Jane is now playing bass in a band called Peter Parker. They've been playing around Scotland for a wee while now and they're about to get some vinyl out.
