Regular readers of my blog (should I have such a thing) will know that a few posts ago I had mentioned my surprise that no-one had picked up on their top class album to distribute it on a wider scale. I've now got my wish and I'm sure the band have got theirs!
Well done to the band, well deserved and it will be interesting to see what 2011 now has in store for them.
Moving away from bands, there was the news that Radio 1 is having a bit of a revamp and this has resulted in the appointment of Ally McCrae for their Introducing in Scotland show, which will move to a Sunday night.
McCrae takes over from Vic Galloway and while it is sad to see Vic go (he will still be with BBC Radio Scotland), I'm sure I am not the only music fan in Scotland to be excited by this appointment. As with Admiral Fallow, I mention Ally on a previous blog due to his Detour exploits. So to have someone who is out in the frontline getting his hands dirty by putting on nights and events, regularly attending gigs ad supporting independent and unsigned music in Scotland can only be beneficial in the long run.
I look forward to hearing his first shows in January 2011 to see what he has in store for the show.
So there you have it, a quick blog with 3 reasons to be cheerful for Scottish music.
