Review: Teenage Fanclub – “Endless Arcade”

Just like most people in Scotland my age I’m sure, I was always been acutely aware of Teenage Fanclub growing up however, I will admit I’ve probably never given them enough attention over the years. I’ve dipped in and out of their music from time to time and thought they were OK but one thing …

Review: Amy Macdonald – “The Human Demands”

For over a decade now Amy Macdonald has been the backbone of the Scottish music scene and last year saw the release of her fifth album, The Human Demands but given the fact that we weren’t up and running at the time of it’s release, we never actually reviewed it when it came out in …

Review: Deacon Blue – “Riding on the Tide of Love”

The term “legends” is thrown about far too often these days but when describing Deacon Blue, you’d be doing the band a disservice if you didn’t utilise it. The band have been going strong since since 1985 and are as popular now as they have ever been. Yes, there’s been hiccups, break-ups and line-up changes …
