Scooby 'doo' a Beatles tribute.

Byline: BARRY GORDON

SCOOBY, Bongo Club, Edinburgh, March 5

SCOOBY make the sort of mellow, bittersweet folk music that manages to touch the heart as well as the head.

Favouring the acoustic approach, they offered up a nice slice of country-tinged, early Grateful Dead-inspired tunes that had just about everyone grinning in agreement.

Each member of the band took a turn at lead vocals. Shore Leave paraded their lush Crosby, Stills and Nash vocal harmonies to tear-welling effect, although A Matter Of Time sounded like a direct rip-off from The Beatles' Lovely Rita and Dear Prudence. But we'll forgive them for that.

More typically, the mood was music for big American highways, Cadillac wheels eating up white lines - their laid-back attitude of 'hey, we're only jamming' ensuring their set was stuck in first-gear mode.

Scooby's music may have been a bit too mature for such a young crowd, perhaps. But be good to yourself, lure them out some more, they deserve an audience.
