Scottish Food Culture With Finitribe’s Davie Miller

Finitribe's Davie Miller shares a laugh with the Convenanza festival's Bernie Fabre in Carcassonne.

Finitribe’s Davie Miller shares a laugh with the Convenanza festival’s Bernie Fabre in Carcassonne late last year.

Last year, it was with great pleasure I had the opportunity to spend a few days in the southwest of France with a Scottish gentleman named Davie Miller at the Convenanza festival in Carcassone.

Davie Miller was one of the founder members of seminal Edinburgh band Finitribe, a production collective probably most well known for De Testimony, a impressively striking, shuddering track that found itself become a perennial anthem on dance-floors of all stripes, from Industrial and EBM clubs to the fog-filled dens of Acid House enthusiasts.

Deciding to put Finitribe on hold in 2000, Davie has in the interim been pursuing other interests outside of the music world, returning to re-release De Testimony in 2014, as well as the classic 101 the following year. He is currently working with his long-time accomplice John Vick on some new material that should see the light of day sometime in 2017.

As Davie and I were enjoying the gastronomic and vinous pleasures of the Languedoc, conversation turned to the food that we had grown up on in Scotland in the 1970s, and a few drinks later we decided it would be a superb idea to create a video around said subject matter.

Apologies for the wind interrupting us a couple of times.
