Hope you don’t mind me mentioning my new night, it is relevant due to the fact that the music we will be playing is the bands normally discussed here.

SIMPLY THRILLED – SONGS FROM NORTHERN BRITAIN AND BEYOND – LAUNCHING SATURDAY JULY 28 2018 IN THE ADMIRAL BAR, GLASGOW


This is a note to make you aware of a new club night for Glasgow. Simply Thrilled is the name. Alternative Scottish pop is the idea. And, on Saturday July 28, The Admiral Bar is the venue.

A celebration of the rich pickings from Scotland’s long playlist of quirkier bands – from massive names like Teenage Fanclub and Mogwai to newbies like Sacred Paws – we want Simply Thrilled to be a place for dancing to the kind of Scottish pop unplayed in the mainstream club circuit.

Beyond this, Simply Thrilled is a shot at giving Scottish alternative music the shout-out it deserves, as well as creating a hub for fans of loads of different bands. 

For ten years we were in charge of Glasgow’s successful Strangeways club. Regularly selling out these nights – including pop-ups in Aberdeen; Manchester; London and Boston, Massachusetts – we closed the doors on Strangeways in May of this year, ending on a genuine high.

Now, Simply Thrilled arrives at a terrific time for Scottish pop. We’re kicking-off against a backdrop that includes the recent SAY awards, the RIP IT UP exhibition in Edinburgh, and the documentary series of the same name beginning on BBC Two this week.
