  • Scottish Private Presses

    In response to the thread on the best private press UK releases I wanted to defend Scotland's honour but didn't want to clog up that thread with this mega post of my own picks of Scottish private releases. Might put a few select ones on later though


    Powerpop from the metropolis that is Wick

    Music from a stage show, later became the Wildcat theatre

    Synth pop, last of three singles

    Post punk linked to the Wee Cherubs

    60s style rock and pop from Sanquhar, band were known as the singing dentists due to their profession

    Xian synth pop - sampled quite a few times

    70s rock

    Oi-style punk, absolutely brilliant

    Synth pop

    Electronic tape sounds and synth LP from former Skids manager

    Oi tribute to the Royal Wedding of Charles and Diana

    Edinburgh reggae band

    NWOBHM from the Outer Hebrides, more classic rock than anything

    Kraut rocking indie single

    Ska/new wave from a band who supported the Clash in Glasgow

    70s new wave tinged rock

    Indie pop

    Associates style synth pop

    Talking Heads influenced new wave

    New wave/powerpop

    Can any one help me with uploading images? I've tried to use images from my Flickr account but all that comes up is the image of the 'x' where the image should be. I've tried linking to my computer but keep getting error messages. Am I just being thick?

      If I ever put up images here, or on other forums, I use Photobucket, which works fine

      North of the River Cole

        I'm trying photobucket just now but am still getting a plethora of error messages. I'm clicking on the 'Insert image' icon on the message post and clicking 'from URL'. I paste the link from photobucket in and it comes up with 'error:invalid file' every time.

              Here's a few more:


              Rockabilly LP from Hawick. The band released quite a few singles in Scandinavia in the early 80s

              Prog-garage rock released on a garage label from Texas

              Associates style dramatic synth pop

              Really good synth-y new wave with female vocals - a little bit like the Police in places

              UK country with pedal steel guitar - one or two good tracks, a couple not so

              Folk/synth pop mix

              Crude punk/pub rock from a tiny village in the middle of nowhere - second album has a kraut rocker called Uranus which is excellent

              Xian new wave/powerpop

              Velvets/Talking Heads inspired student group from St. Andrew's University

              Elastic anarcho punk from Glasgow - includes an homage to Noel Edmunds

              New Order worship

              Indie folk/blues project

              Moroder meets Scottish folklore with bagpipes - so bad it's is brilliant

              Minimal synth

              Cabaret band doing their take on Bacharach and the Doobie Brothers

              Vocally out of tune (in a good way) post punk

              Powerpop

              Rock'n'roll, 50s style

              Sounds a bit like the early Cure

              Glam/prog/new wave - caused a stir in Edinburgh in the late 70s

              Synth single, first appearance by Horse

              Proggy NWOBHM

                  Cheers alanmck - with a little bit of fiddling I seem to have got there. Just need to work on resizing images for the future.

                    These look great. I only have the Avalon one. A brief description to accompany images would be useful/appreciated.

                      As first threads by new forum members go, this has got to be up there with the best. I think I recognise about 3.
                      If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

                        Descriptions added to images. Do any VG+s out there have any particular favourites from North of the Border?

                        Here is the Deni Reid and the Kilts 45 - quite a song I'm sure you'll agree

                            Can't find a clip of the single but the singer/guitarist Craig Herbertson has a youtube channel and has posted various other songs that they group recorded but never released. Here's my favourite one -
