62 Aereogramme

Wow, I had to add it to the list. I was at least expecting them to be on it haha. They're pretty awesome, hopefully people check them out even though they broke up

63 Love and Money

Can't believe that such a great band could be overlooked? James Grant. Über talented. 'Strange Kind of Love' is an album that sounds fabulous no matter how many times it's played.

James Grant is a musical genius. "Dogs in the traffic" is the best album by an scottish group that I�'ve heard

64 Baby Chaos

Released two fantastic albums in the mid 1990s, namely "Safe Sex, Designer Drugs and the Death of Rock 'n' Roll" and "Love Your Self Abuse".

65 Josef K
66 Strawberry Switchblade

One of my favourite girl band in the early 80's

67 Admiral Fallow

A cracking band - squealing pigs has to be one of the most foot stomping tunes around!

68 The Chaplins

The best support band I've seen in years

69 Sutherland Brothers & Quiver

Main part of this band is Scottish.

70 Camera Obscura
71 Aberfeldy

Just love there stuff, really feel good music

72 Cold Crows Dead
73 Ultrasonic

At the height of the techno age these guys were top!

74 Garbage Garbage Garbage is an American-Scottish alternative rock band formed in Madison, Wisconsin, in 1993. The group consists of Scottish musician Shirley Manson and American musicians Duke Erikson, Steve Marker, and Butch Vig.

Can you include garbage on this given only one member (lead singer though! ) is actually Scottish? I think so! >20 years in the mix... albeit with a couple of hiatusus in there!

75 Skipinnish

I've been walking walking these shores all my days but with you by my side I've been walking on the waves
