The View are kings of the castle

The View from Edinburgh Castle., it’s a well-known tourist sight,. However, last night it was more about the Dundee band who were playing probably the most unusual gig of their young careers.

The show, in front of only 100 lucky prize winners of a competition run by mobile phone company T-Mobile, was described by drummer Steve Morrison as “the weirdest we’ve ever played.

“We thoroughly enjoyed it, though, playing the castle was brilliant and now we can say we’ve done it all.”

The band were booked to play one of the most exclusive and intimate shows in their calendar, part of a series called the T-Mobile Street Gigs which aims to bring top quality bands to a select number of fans.

Edinburgh Castle seemed a strange choice; however, the small room was transformed with a massive PA and lighting system, creating the normal frenzied atmosphere of a View gig.

During the show lead singer Kyle Falconer said, “This is pretty weird for a bunch of boys from Dundee.”
