Best Selling Scottish Albums Since the Release of Tigermilk

The release of “Tigermilk” was very much a watershed moment for Avalanche so here are the top 12 best selling Scottish albums since that historic day when originally it was only available from ourselves, Missing and FOPP.

As you can see it is a clean sweep at the top for Belle and Sebastian with “The Boy With The Arab Strap” pipping “Tigermilk” to the top. Mogwai have the first entry of many at four and  missed out in the last count The Reindeer Section take places five and six. Biffy Clyro’s first entry is at seven  and after their vinyl Record Store Day release Frightened Rabbit shoots up to eight. Idlewild are at nine and order is restored with “Dear Catastrophe Waitress” the first album not to appear on Jeepster at ten. 

The albums were ranked using one shop’s sales figures to give a level playing field so West Nicolson Street figures are used up to the opening of Cockburn Street and then finally the Grassmarket figures. I’ll expand this top 30 to a top 50 for New Year.
