There is also the common view that Scheme refused to be changed or be moulded into anything else other than what they where, “In your face, straight to the point with attitude”, This appealed to the average guy in the street and the band had the musical know how and ability to back it up, this is also why they were known as “The peoples band”. This Channel 4 produced documentary called ”Innocent As Hell” made in 1986 is dedicated to Scheme, looking at the band’s local success , with clips from a concert they played in George square in Glasgow and one of the Pavillion concerts , The documentary also had interviews with the band ,local celebrities and fans. “

    A rare wee treat.
