There is currently a grass-roots resurgence going on in the Scottish creative arts – whether that be music, painting, printing, writing or performance – that can be linked to the growing confidence of the Scottish people which expressed itself in the September 2014 Independence Referendum.
This is not “high culture” per se – although undoubtedly some aspects are – but culture for the people and by the people.
Radical Independent Music is proud to be part of this rapidly growing and exciting movement and is the umbrella organisation for a plethora of music-related activities centred within the twin metropolises of Edinburgh and Glasgow.
We are relatively new on the scene and our current focus covers:
- A planned vintage vinyl record store located in Edinburgh city centre – and online – which is coming soon and will be combined with an Italian coffee shop/cafe, art gallery and music tuition rooms. This will be unlike any vinyl record store that has preceded it, certainly in Scotland if not the UK.
- Part-time gig promotion.
- Independent music journalism – gig reviews, album reviews and whatever takes our fancy that is Scottish indie music or Scottish independence campaign related.
- “Angel” financial investment in exciting new and emerging Scottish bands.
There is a distinct possibility that a Radical Independent Music record label will be added to this portfolio in 2016.
