Awards

You cannot hope to bribe or twist, thank God! the British journalist. But, seeing what the man will do unbribed, there’s no occasion to.
Humbert Wolfe 1886 - 1940

"If you have Franz Ferdinand on your iPod, then your heart is already dancing to the beat of Scotland’s most vibrant city. For a darker side of Glasgow, listen to the Cinematics’ Strange Education, the music of evil break-ups and rainy afternoons. But even heartbroken, under an umbrella, doomed lovers will sense that Glasgow is the heartbeat of British music, with an equally dynamic arts and design scene. Time for mindless music by Simple Minds over a cup of Lipton’s, a brand created by the tone-deaf Glaswegian tea baron, Sir Thomas Lipton."
