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.

Their song Sometimes Paradise was used in the American series Felicity.
Visit their website www.eskimoblonde.com which has their latest news, where you can hear them play and photographs.
The Aberdonian band should not be confused with their namesakes from the TV programme X Factor who took the name Eskimo Blonde for their pop band and are lead by Jemma Moon from Liverpool. Their other members are Hari Blanch and Gemma Davies.
