Wet Wet Wet
Bursting onto the scene in 1987, Wet Wet Wet are undoubtedly a musical phenomenon. With an incredible back catalogue of songs including three UK No.1’s – the Glasgow lads have made an incredible impact with their music over the years, making them one of the most successful bands in British pop history.
Hue and Cry
Hue and Cry exploded into the UK music conscious in the late 1980s with classic albums, ‘Remote’ and ‘Seduced and Abandoned’. Hit singles including ‘Looking for Linda’ and ‘Labour of Love’ are now embedded as part of the soundtrack to many people’s lives and indeed, have formed an important musical commentary on British politics.
Lighting up the Glasgow scene and far beyond in 2011, with a strident mix of synth anthems, pounding rock base and infectious pop melodies, GoGoBot gave merit to their bold statement of ‘We Are Here’. Consisting of Marko (lead vocals and guitar), Rosie (bass) and Gordon (drums), the band has developed a unique sound, fuelled by their own eclectic taste and purpose.
Red Sky July
Red Sky July is the new project from three well-respected and lauded musicians. Consisting of husband and wife duo Ally McErlaine and Shelly Poole, and singer Charity Hair, Red Sky July is an entirely original debut album from a group with a phenomenal pedigree, all of whom have been steeped in music for as long as they can remember.
Over the eight years since her debut album, Patricia Vonne has proven herself a truly transcendent musical artist. In the same fashion as her lyrically and stylistically multilingual sound melds and soars above a rainbow of genres and musical flavors, Vonne has also handily crossed geographic borders, rising to popularity across Europe.
Cosmic Rough Riders
Cosmic Rough Riders are a Glasgow based band who were originally formed in 1998. Like so many of their influences, the band make a sound that captures young and old, modern and vintage, light and intense – it seems the band have managed to find that level of universal appeal that is so essential to any enduring band.
