Win (band)

Win (band)

Win were a Scottish pop band from the 1980s.

After the dissolution of The Fire Engines, David Henderson formed Win with Ian Stoddart (Bass), ex-Fire Engine Russell Burn (Drums/Keyboards), Emmanuel Shoniwa (Guitar/Bass), Simon Smeeton (Guitar/Bass) and William Perry (Keyboards) in 1983. A more determinedly pop act than The Fire Engines, Win were soon being critically praised. Despite being extremely popular in Scotland, partly due to their single "You've Got The Power" being used in a lager advertising campaign for Scottish brewers McEwans, they were unable to translate that into more widespread success and break through further afield. They released two albums and disbanded in 1990. Henderson went to working with his new band The Nectarine No. 9 releasing records on the revived Postcard label, Creeping Bent and Beggars' Banquet. He is now working on The Sexual Objects.


The music and arts website [ Freaky Trigger] takes its name from Win's second album.
