sound of young scotland


Fellow Capaldians, this might be of interest to you. If you haven’t seen this book you should check it out. Put together by Ken McCluskey (Of the Scottish Band ‘The Bluebells’), it’s the rock photography of Harry Papadopolous who photographed bands throughout the years. Sadly Harry has a brain aneurism and now lives in a care home. But Ken, a good friend of his, went to visit him and sorted out all his photos for everyone to love and enjoy. As The Dreamboys were on the Glasgow scene when he was photographing, they are in the book! Foreword also by Peter Capaldi. It’s a lovely book and I treasure it (for more reasons than the Capaldi, but that’s a long story for another day!)


The Go-Betweens when they sounded like The Cure when they didn’t sound like The Cure yet.
