The rock music group Eskimo Blonde
was formed in Aberdeen in 1997 by drummer Graeme Cruickshank. The unusual band name was chosen when Graeme was searching through Teletext for the football results. He saw some broken letters on the screen which spelt out the name Eskimo Blonde. The band decided to take this as their name.
The other group members are Michael Loszak (frontman), Barry Mitchell, Tim Bennett and Rohan Cree.
