by Hipsway

It's never easy to be objective about a group when they're your friends but Hipsway were, at their best, a great band, fantastic live and blessed with the charismatic Skin on vocals. This is my favourite single from their first album and it was unexpectedly yet characteristically gallus ;-)

Extraordinarily brilliant Scottish band from the 1990s that typically got lost amongst the Britpop dross. Rod Stewart covered this :-) Joe McAlinden is recording again as Linden. Bleached Highlights was released in 2012 and there's new music due this June - Rest And Be Thankful. I should say so.

Waves

by Sam Baker

I'm going to see Sam again this week in Glasgow. He can talk a great story and he can sing to make you laugh and sing to make you cry. Waves is a beautiful song about that most special love between two people. His back story is worth looking into, his songs even more...                                                                                                                                                                     "He walks down to the ocean. Bends to touch the water. Kneels to pray. Writes her name in the sand. Waves wash it away.
