The Acute

The Acute
The Acute are three lads from Edinburgh whose striking appearance is getting almost as much attention as their music. They're being tipped for big things by anyone who's anyone in the Scottish music industry, so remember where you heard them first.

Project:Venhell

Project:Venhell
Loud is the order of the day here. Project Venhell claim that growing up in a small seaside town has filled them with a 'murderous rage'. Their off-punk sound is directly attributable to the fact that none of them know how to play heavy metal.

OBE

O.B.E.
These three Edinburgh boys peddle a style of grimy funk-rock which is often compared to Talking Heads. No bad thing in our book!

Jack Butler

Jack Butler
Confusingly, Jack Butler is actually four people, none of whom are called Jack. Their aim is to bring together their diverse array of sounds and influences into well-structured songs.

3 Style

3 Style
3 Style are three MC's with a live backing band. They're getting a lot of radio plays and have pulled off some big-name support spots to considerable acclaim.

Attic Lights

Attic Lights
Glasgow-based Attic Lights bring a taste of West-coast America to the West coast of Scotland. Their vocal harmonics are already proving popular with TV and radio producers.

Injuns

Injuns
Injuns formed on the Isle of Skye, but now work out of Glasgow. They describe their style as punk-funk-disco-country.
Web: www.injuns.co.uk

Futuro

Futuro
Amidst all the crossover projects on this year's line-up, here's a band that are happy to describe themselves simply as 'Rock'. They're a trio and they come from Glasgow.

Billy Bates

Billy Bates
Unlike Jack Butler, Billy Bates is just one person and he really is called Billy Bates. He and his guitar are regulars on the live scene around their Glasgow hometown and the wider Scottish circuit.

How to Swim

How to Swim
This 11-piece band have been together since 2000. Their dark, loose, voodoo style provokes frequent comparisons with Tom Waits and Nick Cave.
Web: www.myspace.com/howtoswim

Some Young Pedro

someyoungpedro
Bursting out of Glasgow with a big bag of attitude, someyoungpedro describe themselves as 'the sound of a car factory falling down the stairs'.
