HF@D Presents... Scottish Compilation Volume 1

Music in Scotland is extremely healthy at the moment, not enough people realise that. To demonstrate the caliber of up and coming bands in Scotland I've compiled a free and legal album to download. As well as home-based bands, it features Scottish bands based elsewhere (Spaghetti Anywhere, King Post Kitsch), established Scottish bands (Meursault, eagleowl, Copy Haho), some exclusives (The Last Battle, How To Swim, Kays Lavelle) and some bands I just think are great. Stick these 17 tracks in your ears, and remember, most of the bands have an album or an e.p available, so try and support the artists. A big thanks to all the bands for agreeing to be on it.

  7. I usually go to a Scottish music bar in the town of my city , this band is one of the best one, thanks for the track list

  8. The first part of starting any new site is picking the niche you want it to be in hotel marrakech. My biggest criteria for this case study was finding a niche that should be fairly easy to get some traction in rapidleech servers, so I went for something pretty obscure pnr status. I don’t know how much money is here, so I’m taking a chance therescrapebox. But all techniques stay the same adwords coupon.

  9. What do you mean by music being healthy?
