Colonel Mustard and The Dijon 5

Now they don't come much funkier than Scotland's Colonel Mustard and The Dijon 5 and that point was proved recently when they won the coveted Scottish Alternative Music Award for Best Live Act, much to the delight of their faithful followers who comprise the legions that are the 6th Dijon.

Colonel Mustard and The Dijon 5 are a manic assemblage of musical mayhem, much loved by their growing throng of fans. They throw the party and the 6th Dijon are always invited to join in the craziness that ensues.

They released a CD Single called These Are Not The Drugs (You Are Looking For) which was their self-styled 'anthem for Summer and Festivals' and it's a disco-tastic blend of psychedelic beats and funky ass Scottish hip hopping. If The Cuban Brothers and Primal Scream were to conceive a bastard child, then Colonel Mustard and The Dijon 5 would be the result.
