T Break stage

T Break stage has 20 years of developing Scotland's diverse musical counter culture.

Scotland’s largest music festival began in 1997 -
has provided a platform in the past for new Scottish talent coming through such as stadium fillers Snow Patrol, Biffy Clyro, Twin Atlantic, Frightened Rabbit and Travis.

The stage also tells of the important musical underground – of DIY Labels, the counter-culture and musical evolutions.
The indie pop, loud and melodic Lungleg who played at T Break also in 1997 – were part of a thriving Scottish grassroots scene that gave rise toClub Beatroot (RM Hubbert, Franz Ferdinand) and Chemikal Underground. (Bis, Delgados, Arab Strap)

There are many subcultures and genres – from vintage, rockabilly, hip-hop, folk, electronica, blues-punk, cult-pop, and neo-classical metal.

Other popular Scottish bands given a platform at T Break – Prides, Paws, Admiral Fallow, Chrvches, The Unwinding Hours.

Admiral Fallow Photos King Tuts

I took photos of this up and coming Scottish band Admiral Fallow at King Tuts Glasgow - and I noticed how much fun they were having on stage. Oddly.  I was checking through my images of new Scottish musicians and posted this blog last night  - and low and behold they are releasing their second album "Tree Bursts In Snow" Monday 21st and getting good reviews. I'm getting psychic now!?
