THE Modests are set to add another legendary venue to their list of conquests.
The teenage outfit, whose lead guitarist is St Margaret’s High pupil Liam Campbell, have already played the Cavern Club in Liverpool and Glasgow’s O2 Academy are set to play the city’s Barrowland next month.
Liam (15) from Moffat Mills in Airdrie became involved in the band through his cousin Daniel, the band’s drummer.
