The Sound of Young Scotland - Documentaries

In this month's MOJO (February 2015 issue) you can read all about two forthcoming Grant McPhee documentaries highlighting the independent music scene in Scotland from 1977 to 1994. Both films feature interviews and footage of all the important players who take part in all of it.

Watch the trailer for these films at the links below:

The Big Gold Dream - Scottish Post-Punk, DIY And Infiltrating The Mainstream (1977-1985)

Songs From Northern Britain - The Country That Invented Indie Music (1986 - 1994)


Additional information from Sound of Young Scotland @Kiltr :
"Some things you never knew about Postcard Records: photographer Peter McArthur (who took all those amazing Strawberry Switchblade stills) was responsible for the name of the label, and Orange Juice drummer - Steven Daly - coined the phrase: 'The Sound of Young Scotland.' "
