Stealers Wheel

When they debuted in 1972, the Scottish folk-rock band Stealers Wheel were seen as a British answer to America's Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Formed by Gerry Rafferty and Joe Egan, who had known each other since school, the band shot to fame in 1973 with the song "Stuck in the Middle With You", a Top 10 hit on both sides of the Atlantic. Released a few months earlier, the album Stealers Wheel (1972) benefited only moderately from this success. " Everything Will Turn Out Fine " and "Star " (1974) also made a name for themselves, before the band broke up in confusion in 1975. Stealers Wheel was soon forgotten, but was revived in 1992 when "Stuck in the Middle With You" illustrated a cult scene from Quentin Tarantino's film Reservoir Dogs. In 2001, a dance version by Louise was released in the U.K., while the images in the video clip are a direct reference to the film scene. In 2008, some of the musicians who originally accompanied Gerry Rafferty and Joe Egan formed a new Stealers Wheel.
