Love - Sorcha Dallas interview14 Jan 2010
Affair of the art
As exhibition titles go, you could hardly get more intriguing or evocative than Love. Yet, as Sorcha Dallas, proprietor of one of Glasgow’s most exciting contemporary spaces, points out, the name of the gallery’s first group show of 2010 is more than a…

Arthur Miller's The Price set for Lyceum8 Jan 2010
By the time he wrote The Price, Arthur Miller was already in his early 50s, an elder statesman of the theatrical world, veteran of the oppressive days of McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee, thrice married and widower of Marilyn…

Show me the funny - Limmy interview7 Jan 2010
Limmy’s problem is that he just thinks too much. ‘I was walking through the Botanic Gardens and starting to just enjoy walking about, doing nothing. I’m not thinking about the past or holding any grudges or thinking should I have done that differently…
10 for 2010: Silver Columns7 Jan 2010
Silver Columns – a top secret duo poised to reveal their true identities any day now – captured our imaginations with 2009’s brilliant disco gem, ‘Brow Beaten’. Still largely mysterious (did someone say Fence?) a debut LP this spring will be hard to…
10 for 2010: Midnight Lion7 Jan 2010
Accomplished electropop from ex Drive-By Argument members Midnight Lion.The duo score points for Miike Snow-esque chart potential and, just as Vodaphone do (they also tip them for success) we admire their melding of slick beats and Scottish accents.
10 for 2010: Errors7 Jan 2010
Rock Action favourites Errors first made their twitchy, electronic mark with 2007 EP ‘How Clean is Your Acid House?’ With another Channel 4-referencing album Come Down With Me in February, expect more melodic electronica and a full tour to follow.
10 for 2010: The Phantom Band7 Jan 2010
The brilliance of last year’s Checkmate Savage shot these ‘proto-robofolk’-ers straight into our Hot 100. Here’s hoping that, after various name changes, they’re going to stay TBP long enough to promote this year’s new album.
10 for 2010: The Unwinding Hours7 Jan 2010
Ex-Aereogramme men, Craig B and Iain Cook, make a welcome return with The Unwinding Hours. Their new material shows the same engrossing and heart-wrenching qualities. A self-titled debut album is due to be released on 15 Feb.
10 for 2010: Pearl and the Puppets7 Jan 2010
It’s the old story. Girl meets guitar. Girl meets Elton John. Flowery alternative pop abounds across mobile phone adverts. There’s enough Regina Spektor in Katie Sutherland’s (aka Pearl)’s ouput to balance out the Sandi Thom, however. Album in the…
10 for 2010: Meursault7 Jan 2010
Another gem from the Song, by Toad stable, Neil Pennycook and co aim to match the brilliance of 2008’s, Pissing on Bonfires/ Kissing With Tongues with an album in April, plus launch night at Cabaret Voltaire, Edinburgh. www,myspace.com/meursaulta701
10 for 2010: Lau7 Jan 2010
Multi-award-winning folk trio Lau (comprising Kris Drever, Martin Green and Aidan O’Rourke), encapsulated the idea of achingly beautiful, traditional yet progressive folk music with their excellent Arc Light album last year. Unmissable live.
