Predestination Records releases compilation of Glasgow acts

Premeditation Vol. 3 captures recent visits to the city on a double-disc collection

(Predestination Records)
Stirling-based Predestination Records (‘a small record label, set up by five people who like music’, as they describe it) have pulled together 23 of the finest acts to trawl Glasgow’s live circuit in recent months and years for the third volume of their Premeditation compilation series. This particular edition offers an incredibly broad and inventive spectrum of noise, from United Fruit and Divorce’s frantic guitar attacks to Other People and Olympic Swimmers’ accomplished melodies.

Spanning label staples and founders such as Hey Enemy and Dead Or American; plus local regulars doing the rounds on the alternative circuit (Titus Gein, Holy Mountain, Super Adventure Club, Loss Leader and Stomach, among others); as well as visitors such as French duo Mr Protector and frankly insane Irish troupe Adebisi Shank, this double-disc collection is a shortcut to the pulse of an exciting musical community too often overlooked.
