Rip It Up: The Story of Scottish Pop. Everything. 1975: The Average White Band are the first Scottish band to have a US number one single and album simultaneously, with Pick up the Pieces and AWB topping the charts Stateside in February 1975. 1976: First recorded by The Everly Brothers in 1960, Dunfermline rockers Nazareth find fame with their power ballad cover of Love Hurts. Their version found further fame when Cher covered their version for her 1991 album of the same name. 1983: Avalanche Records opens its doors in Edinburgh, going on to close in 2016 after various location changes. 1984: Big Country release their sophomore album Steeltown; recorded at ABBA’s Polar Studios in Stockholm, Sweden, it tops the UK album charts for a week. 1984: Midge Ure co-writes Band Aid hit Do They Know It’s Christmas? with Bob Geldof.

Cherry Pop got off to a flying start with releases from Latoya Jackson, Sheena Easton and Haysi Fantayzee. This really is a label driven by fans requests so please do let us know of any releases you would like to see out on this imprint. Please contact ideasryred. IronBirdThe IronBird Label offers Rock, Hard Rock and Metal releases that have not been around for a while or are difficult to find, with great re-mastered sound and new packaging. Initially ignited by punk, labels sprang up in Glasgow, Edinburgh and elsewhere to give a voice to the explosion of new acts across the country.

Scottish indie pop band Belle and Sebastian. Scotland’s a country on the northwest perimeter of Europe that is relatively isolated and windswept, ponders Edinburgh-based DJ and musician Vic Galloway, a presenter on BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio Scotland. What defines music made there? I find it hard to say, to be honest. Galloway has built his reputation as a champion of new Scottish music, and he’s written the book that accompanies Rip It Up: The Story of Scottish Pop, a major new summer exhibition at Edinburgh’s National Museum of Scotland.

The following album 'Creeping up on Jesus' in 1988 was a commercial disappointment and the band were dropped by Virgin. Their last album 'Satellites' came out in 1991 and as with the previous album there was just a rump of the band remaining with session musicians filling the gaps 8. Bronski Beat. Later that year they managed to churn out another album called 'Rip it Up' and the single of the same name became their biggest hit with a placing at N. in the UK Charts. They were busy again in 1984 with another two albums 'Texas Fever' in March and 'The Orange Juice' in November.

The follow-up album, Howdy!, released on Columbia Records in the UK after the demise of Creation, continued the sound of Songs from Northern Britain. They performed a cover of Orange Juice's "Rip It Up" with Edwyn Collins. On 25 April 2018, the band announced the 10 August release of vinyl and digital reissues of their five Creation Records era albums which had been remastered at Abbey Road Studios.

It uses an impressive range of multimedia exhibits. It has a great T-shirt selection in the gift shop. How people would queue up round the block to get the latest records from Bruce’s Record Shop. Music is an inescapable part of Scottish identity, and that’s the way it should be; how it always has been. Further than our emotional ties to music, however, Rip it Up made me question the sort of music exhibition I would expect to visit in 30 years’ time. Which bands would I want to see there? Why?
