Party animal Keiren is a jeans genius on The View's new single

SCOTS pop star Keiren Webster is giving Keith Richards a run for his money as a rock 'n' roll wildman.

The View bassist wrote the Dundee band's brilliant new single Same Jeans after going on a four-day bender. Keiren said: "I ended up at a party in a mate's flat.

"We sat around having a sing-a-long and playing records. At the end of it I was still raring to go and went to a club.

"I had the same clothes on for nearly a week."

The View recently completed a sell-out UK arena tour with fellow Scots Primal Scream.

Keiren said: "We did some partying after gigs but it was difficult to keep up with bass player Mani. I don't think he sleeps."

Same Jeans - out on January 15 - is a taster for the band's impressive debut album Hats Off To The Buskers. Keiren said: "We're really pleased with how it has turned out. It's really live sounding and guitar driven - we didn't want a record which was really polished."

The View - Keiren, Pete Reilly, Kyle Falconer and Steve Morrison - are one of the star attractions of Glasgow's Hogmanay party and will perform for 15,000 fans in George Square.

They also play Glasgow's Carling Academy on February 1 as part of the Shockwaves NME tour. Keiren said: "I love Arctic Monkeys, so maybe the tour can do for us what it did for them."
