44 Teenage Fanclub

Sunshine music for dreich days.

Best scottish band by a stretch

45 Boards of Canada
46 Django Django

Been a huge fan of Django Django for a while. Just saw them play at the Unknown Festival in Croatia. One of the best live acts I have ever seen.

47 The Waterboys

Mike Scott is the Waterboys and as a supreme songwriter his canon of songs has no rival among Scots. An extraordinary talent.

Apart from Whole of the Moon, Mike Scott's Waterboys went complete under the radar until I heard Moden Blues (2015) which is an excellent album. Now explored the back catalogue. It's like finding a musical treasure chest.

Cannot believe no one has nominated mike Scotts vehicle for his songwriting genius. Deserve top 10 for whole of the moon alone but so much more to this magnificent band

Fishermens blues one of best songs ever. Unbelievable no one voting for this wonderful band

48 Wet Wet Wet

Most underrated band with great songs and they are back soon with new material

Great lead singer in Marty Pellow and one of the biggest selling tracks of all time in Love is all around.

49 Foil

"Spread It All Around" is a classic album

50 The Silencers
51 Marmalade

Why are they not near the top?

52 Capercaillie
53 Skerryvore

Great band and always good for a great time and dancing around... if ya have seen them "live" once ya keep want to see them again in concert

54 Red Hot Chilli Pipers

Once you've seen them live, you will always remember. Just a happy band.
