Hi balshyboy, I have to tell you that I have looked for this album in the past for someone else and have yet to be able to track it down - I can't even find a playlist! I can still remember the cover of the album as I saw it at parties as a teenager in the 80s, but no luck in finding it yet, will continue to look.

I did find this reference to them though:

QUOTE
"Scheme were a rock band from Greater Easterhouse. They formed in 1980, and by 1985 had played the Pavillion and sold out the Apollo - the first unsigned band ever to do so. In 1983 they walked on the People's March for Jobs all the way from Glasgow to London, playing various venues on the way down, and gigging at Crystal Palace. Channel 4 made a documentary about them in 1986.

As a band we all had great times in the rise of our popularity during the 1980's - Denny from Scheme"

There's more:


TIME (GOES BY)

See the children playing
It's just another day on
24 hours in one
It's just another day on.

Time goes by, tick, ticking away
Tick, ticking away.
Some minutes seem a lifetime;
This is my first today.
Time goes by, tick, ticking away
Tick, ticking away.
Wave the past goodbye.
This is my first today.
It will never be this time again.
It will never be this time again.
You don't know how much you got;
Might not be a lot.

MP3 of the above song is available at the above website - nothing to do with me, I'm just telling you, of course:

Hi,

Are you going down the pub tonight?
Don't you know its going to be alright?
makes no difference at the Black and White!
twist the night away................................


OR.....


Sitting alone in this out of bounds zone,
Napalm clouds getting me down.
Should've moved out of the shelter,
was so frightened when the time came around.
Just an ordinary everyday morning,
the night brings in the dawning,
just living your life seems a crime.........



My God!!!!!

I hav'nt listened to that album in almost 20 years!!

Feck me!

The time that they sold out the Apollo was the best. I thought the upper tier was going to collapse. Did you know that they were the only unsigned band to sell out the great glasgow apollo??

Anyway,

the legendary Black and White..........

I should have an original, if I have kept it with my other vinyl - excuse the tease but it will have been in a lock-up in Shettleston for 15 years now. I never cut the seal on mine, but taped my mate Gibby's version - that is Scott Gibson, went to Cranhill Secondary would have left 1985?? I went to the Greg.

will keep you posted, though it looks as if I'll have to find a deck to burn it to MP3!!

Great band, but the violence that followed was their downfall. who can forget the murder at the Pavillion?
weesue
I saw them in the Castlemilk Community Centre... Gawd knows when...? The 70's. I was young and can't remember the date in all the excitment of seeing them... One of my first concerts so to speak...

We're all in the one boat, together
Shed our skin, no difference
We're all the same...

Brilliant... Eh! cool.gif

Hi Lynn
I seen your ad on this site and wondered if you had heard about Rab startin up another band called Scusie. There are some songs of theirs on YouTube jist now n we've heard that they're bringin out an album very soon! I noticed on your ad that you have a lot of live stuff by Scheme and wondered if you are willing to trade as i've got a lot of stuff i could give you as well. if you don't already have it lol.. we are looking for some more live stuff and demos if possible as i lost a lot of stuff i had collected over the years. hope to hear from you and if you have messenger i'll send you our addy n we could send files that way. Tell big George when you see him that Cokey from the Calton was askin for him. Last time i seen him was down in Bairds and he hadn't changed a bit!! lol. speak soon and would be really appreciated. thanks

Hi Can anyone sort me out with any scheme stuff???

especially looking for........
The talk back DVD.
Scheme live at the pavillion recording from radio clyde.........or video footage if it exists.
Scheme live at the appollo recordings....or video footage if it exists
scheme demos..any at all.

I can trade the black and whites album on CD with the 7" ep on CD...4 songs on that also.

I'm getting back into scheme in a big way after all these years. What a band.

Hi Lynn,I was wondering if you could leave an email or contact number.I have many live recordings(the pavillion,george square,zanzi bar,barrowlands,rooftops etc and also have a lot of studio demos etc)but I'm also interested in live stuff I might not have.I could give you copies of the stuff I've got for a copy of the stuff you've got if that's ok?If you could let me know that would be great.Thanks.
