Is this music?

By Stu Nazareth Translated by Enoch Su

 

 

      They've got three kinds of music in Scotland. Twee, not so twee, and really frigg'n twee. You get all three kinds in "an independent music magazine from Scotland" called "is this music?" The Scots, God bless them, no matter how twisted their bands try to be (Beta Band, anyone?) and their tunes have their melodic hooks intact. Is this music? Delivers 10 wonderfully bent pop/rock/punk songs on the CD. This issue (#9) has burned brilliant songs by The Gena Rowlands Band, Frog Pocket, Franz Ferdinand and F**k-off Machette into me noggin. This slim magazine is stuffed with recorded and live music reviews, commentary, news, and interviews on what has to be every single Scottish band since the Earle of Bruce rocked the house. Bonus for Americans: is this music? does not need English subtitles like Trainspotting.
