Vic took some time out from his BBC Radio Scotland and Radio 1 shows to tell us who he's tipped for the top in 2010.

Wow, these lists get longer every year... sorry, but it just shows how much World-Class shizzle is out there from Scotland just now. More than ever! Try and check these guys over the next 12 months - there's a massive range of styles from Indie to Dubstep to Hardcore to Acoustic songwriters to Electronica and Hip-Hop.

Also remember, 2010 will see new album releases by Frightened Rabbit, Codeine Velvet Club, Errors, Findo Gask and Super Adventure Club - all of which should be awesome!

If you don't see your favourite new band in this blog, leave a wee comment with your tips below...

Happy New Year Y'all! Here's to another year of blinding music - forget the X-factor and all these Karaoke chancers... listen to the good stuff!
