The Pastels are an indie rock group from Glasgow formed in 1981. They were a key act of the Scottish and British independent music scenes of the 1980s, and are specifically credited for the development of an independent and confident music scene in Glasgow.

The band released a series of singles from 1982-1986, starting with Something Going On and B-side I Wonder Why in 1983. The latter record was later separately released by Rough Trade after McRobbie travelled to see Geoff Travis at the label’s office in London, where he insisted that they were “the next big thing out of Scotland.” The band then released Million Tears in 1984, I’m Alright With You in 1985, and Truck Train Tractor in 1986.

These releases were published on a variety of labels including Whaam!, Creation, and Glass Records, and all had a raw and immediate sound, melodic and amateur, which seemed at odds with the time.

The Pastels’ sound continued to evolve and, although part of NME’s C86 compilation, in interviews they always sought to distance themselves from both twee and shambling developments.
