One of several C-86-style indie pop projects involving Glasgow's Lawrence "Laz" McCluskey, Strawberry Whiplash is primarily a collaboration between McCluskey and vocalist Sandra. Deriving their name from the bands Strawberry Switchblade and Meat Whiplash, the duo formulated a sweet, reverb-kissed sound that nodded to acts like Tiger Trap, Heavenly, and Black Tambourine. Making their first appearance on The Matinee Hit Parade, a compilation released in honor of that label's tenth anniversary, Strawberry...
