Vic Galloway’s 50 Scottish Artists to watch in 2010 Wow, these lists get longer every year… sorry, but it just shows how much World-Class shizzle is out there from Scotland just now. Try and check out these guys over the next 12 months – there’s massive range of styles from Indie to Dubstep to Hardcore to Acoustic songwriters to Electronica and Hip-Hop. Get your listening equipment around this lot… in no particular order: Kid Adrift Paper Planes North Atlantic Oscillation Simon Doherty Silver Columns Other People Akira Kiteshi (and the AK Kids) Citizens Dupec Cast of the Capital ... Kitty the Lion Nadsroic Vcheka Kobi Onyame Older Lover AmericanMen (and the 'Luckyme' Collective) The Agitator Django Django The Scottish Enlightenment (see video) United Fruit ... Miaoux Miaoux (and Maple Leaves) French Wives Pablo RM Hubbert Gogobot Lord Cut Glass Divorce Indian Red Lopez Copyhaho (see photo) Drums of Death ... Lord Rochester The Seventeenth Century Cuddly Shark Loops Haunt Olympic Swimmers Sola Perplexus (and the 'Audiodacity' Crew) Three Blind Wolves Ben Butler and Mousepad Schnapps John B. McKenna ... Fur Hood Pearl & the Puppets Nacional Kassidy Brother Louis Collective Sci-Fi Stu This Familiar Smile The Stark Palace (and the 'Shark Batter' Posse) X Lion Tamer Boycotts Also remember, 2010 will see new album releases by Frightened Rabbit, Codeine Velvet Club, Errors, Findo Gask and Super Adventure club – all of which should be awesome! If you don’t see your favourite new band in this blog, check my ‘artists to watch in 2009 and 2008 as they’ll most probably be there. If not, leave a wee comment with your tips below… Happy New Year Y’all! Here’s to another year of blinding music – forget the X-factor and all these Karaoke chancers… listen to the good stuff! Cheers, Vic xxx ... Check out Vic on BBC Radio and Dear Scotland every week. Kassidy httpv:// Photo credit: Copy Haho via BBC
