The Sound Of Young Scotland

For a country with a population around five million, Scotland has long had a rich musical legacy, and during the rock era, there have been no shortage of notable musicians from Alba. One of Scottish music’s more fruitful eras was the post-punk period that arose in the late 1970s. It was a setting that encouraged acts to strive for individualism and indulge eccentricities, and it produced a stream of quirky bands that often confounded mainstream audiences, but always seemed to garner critical adoration and a commercial niche – qualities found today among many Scottish acts.
