I’m delighted to be joined by Rab Allan, lead guitar player of the incredible Glasvegas for our first episode since August of last year.

It's an absolute honour to be joined by The Lapelles' Chris Ballantyne, Jack Anderson, Jamie Holmes and Leon Green. The Lapelles are, in my opinion, the seminal Scottish band of the 2010s.
