Scotland Yard Gospel Choir

I'm not sure if this band is still a band. I'm not sure what's going on in their lives or where they went after a key member split off to go solo. There doesn't seem to be anything more recent than June 11th, 2005 pictures on the website, and a myspace site is missing in action.

All that being said I still like the sound The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir puts out. I first saw them live when they opened for aging alt-rockers Wheat three years ago in Indy. They clearly stole the show. Since then they've released one indie record, I Bet You Say That to All The Boys, and have played a slew of little shows with the likes of Death Cab and The Long Winters. If you're curious about them, that's their scene.

This is Elia of The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir. We're still a band and busier than ever. We're nearly finished with our next record and just returned from two packed shows in NYC. Recently we've played with Ben Gibbard, Tilly and the Wall, The Fiery Furnaces, and Bobby Bare Jr. The myspace page is myspace.com/scotlandyardgospelchoir
Thanks for keeping us in mind, and keep up the great work on the site. Yers, Elia elia@sygc.com
