Fopp in Aberdeen

Dundee band The View played a set in an Aberdeen record store yesterday during a mini tour of Scotland to mark the release of their second single.

The four-piece indie rock band performed to a crowd of around 90 fans in the Fopp store on Union Street.

The previous night, they played in their hometown Fopp and earlier that day in the Fopp store in Edinburgh's Rose Street.

Their latest single, Superstar Tradesman, follows Wasted Little DJs, which was released earlier this year and reached 15 in the UK charts.

The young band, from Dryburgh, in Dundee, have enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame since they burst onto the music scene early last year.

They have progressed from playing around local pubs and clubs in Dundee, and writing and rehearsing their own songs in the backroom of their local, The Bayview Bar, to supporting renowned acts including Babyshambles, Primal Scream and The Undertones. They join Dirty Pretty Things, The Kooks, The Mystery Jets and Hot Chip, who have all played at Fopp stores in recent times.

A spokesman for the Aberdeen store said the band's performance was very well received by fans.
