Rip It Up will be great but not The Only Fun In Town

Just a quick post to explain about the National Museum of Scotland’s exhibition on Scottish Pop Music “Rip It Up”. For those asking yes of course I knew about it as far back as April 2016 but couldn’t say anything. I’ve been more than happy to help out with contacts and exhibits and it is going to be a great help in getting a permanent location for The Scottish Pop Music Exhibition Centre that I have been working on for several years now.

The museum’s focus is very much on the bands and a few key labels while the Exhibition Centre will have a far wider remit also covering artwork, posters, badges, venues, clubs, photographs, memorabilia and even a few shops and the odd pub ! Also even with an exhibition of this magnitude the number of artists featured will be far smaller than what we have planned for the Exhibition Centre. Consequently both exhibitions will complement each other nicely and of course the Centre’s exhibition will continue after the museum has finished. 

Lots more news soon and certainly 2018 is going to be a great year for Scottish music.
