Back From My Holidays - An Update

After a week in the Neuk Of Fife, I'm back and fighting fit. I'd missed the first two days of the holiday thanks to the New Taste of China who decided to poison me with their King Prawn Curry (if that's the "new" taste, I'd hate to try the old one).

In my absence the following has happened:

Camera Obscura have made a super video for "Honey In The Sun", which, in my hu8mble opinion is not only the best track on the album but the song of the year so far. View it here: The video also features the wonderful Cairn String Quartet, well, most of them!

Susan Boyle's making a few quid and good luck to her.

Jim Gellatly and Vic Galloway tied the knot at Rockness!

Biffy Clyro announce a UK tour, with tickets on sale with the usual outlets:The full list of shows are:-

Som more Proclaimers news and bits and pieces:

"A few wee Proclaimers things, you can listen for the next 7 days to Craig and Charlie's interview with Mark Lawson on BBC Radio 4's Arts magazine programme, Front Row at

Two songs live acoustically at The Fly's Courtyard Session can be seen at

Orange The Music Show interview at

Holy Moly interview

GMTV performance

TuneTribe interview at

The Proclaimers are delighted to return to Shetland for a gig at the Clickimin Centre on Saturday 29th August Tickets on sale 9am Saturday 20 June at Shetland Box Office, Islesburgh Community Centre, 01595 745555 and at

Also, the final date in July's Canadian tour has been added, Ottawa Bluesfest on July 10th on a new downtown stage at Byward Market and this will be a free show"

Here are DeRosa doing "Cathkin Braes" during the recent Tigerfest and there will be a debut (i.e. a full proper gig) Glasgow gig for Lord Cut-Glass on the 27th of June at King Tuts.

Not really Jocknroll but the Joe Meek biopic "Telstar" is out now, finally, and is so much better than "The Boat That Rocks"!
