Yesterday was St Andrews Day.

Yesterday i was too busy getting drunk to do this post. Today i’m too hungover to make a serious attempt at one and do it justice so instead i’ll just post some random stuff.

Some really good Scottish music of all varieties and sounds will do for a start.

Some famous ones, some semi famous ones, some lesser known ones…..

MP3: Frightened Rabbit – The Loneliness

MP3: The Beta Band – She’s The One

MP3: De Rosa – Prelude To Entropic Doom

MP3: Galoshins – Sprayed with Blood

MP3: Bwani Junction – Two Bridges

MP3: Sons and Daughters – Taste The Last Girl

MP3: Eagleowl – This Is Not Your Lucky Day

MP3: Adam Stafford – Shot Down You Summer Wannabes

MP3: Divorce – Bloody Horn

MP3: Camembert – The Taste

Oh and the never forgotten ones…

Which reminds me, i’m off to see Song of Return on saturday night..

MP3: Song Of Return – Shackles

Song Of Return free show at Flat 0/1
An amazing band and a cool venue. What more could i want for a Saturday nights entertainment?

Bonus stuff
————–
Anyone fancy a free download of a concept album all about Glasgow?
Sings Of A Dear Green Place

Or what about a song from Manchester via London but all about Glasgow..
MP3: Sparky Deathcap – Glasgow Is A Punk Rock Town

Remember these guys!? I was like 8 or 9 when this came out!

There are so so many amazing Scottish artists out there and i’m going to get a post up before the end of the year (yes, i said this aaages ago but i’ll do it this time!) with a massive list of Scottish bands old and new. I’m going to sit down, roll a few and dedicate a night to it but right now i’m away for a pint of my favourite hangover cure and some Rab C.

THE MONDAY LIST #19: Digital Drugs

Tomorrow marks the release of the tenth anniversary edition of the classic Queens of the Stone Age album “Rated R”. One of my favourite albums of all time by one of my favourite bands of all time.  The album contains references to drugs throughout, no more so than in the opening track “Feel Good Hit of the Summer” where the only lyrics  are “Nicotine, valium, vicodin, marijuana, ecstasy and alcohol” before a chorus solely made up of the word “Cocaine” comes in. Messy, wonderfully loose and instantly ear catching. The rest of the album follows suit and makes for an absolute classic record.


MP3: Queens of the Stone Age – Feel Good Hit Of The Summer


All the drug references in Rated R gave me  an idea for the next Monday List….

Drugs may be the road to nowhere but at least they’re the scenic route….

DIGITAL DRUGS

MP3: Maps – Valium In The Sunshine

MP3: The Velvet Underground and Nico – Heroin

MP3: Phosphorescent – Cocaine Lights

Apparently there’s a new “drug” sweeping the universe at the moment. It’s called “i-dosing”. It’s the process of putting on headphones and listening to music that apparently induces a state of ecstasy. I know, sounds fucked up, right? These MP3’s are freely available and suggest that you “maybe lie down” and “relax” before closing your eyes and allowing the “music” to give you auditory and visual hallucinations.

Want a “hit”…

I’ve just got a hilarious picture in my head of a shady looking guy standing on a dark street corner, shiftily opening his trenchcoat to passers by and asking “Here mate, after any MP3’s?” or “I’ve got some really good stuff here. Albums, singles even some b-sides. Got some bootlegs too, this 70’s stuff will really fuck your mind”.

Who knows if this “i-dosing” works and frankly who cares? Seems like just another internet craze. I have no desire to try it and i’m certainly not in a hurry to overdose on music just yet so i won’t be dabbling with this nonsensical idea any time soon. I’ll stick to Boards of Canada, Spacemen 3, Gold Panda and Aphex Twin as my “drug music”.

*I would just like to state that this post/article is not in anyway intended to condone or promote drug use.*

MP3: Marilyn Manson – I Don’t Like The Drugs (But The Drugs Like Me)
