Bjork talks to the Scotsman.

"Nobody has ever told me how my records should sound. I make them and give them to the record company and that's it," she says. "I know from other musicians that is very rare and I'm grateful I've been allowed to go through a natural evolution."

The Sunday Herald talks to Scottish bands about the influence of Glasgow's Orange Juice.

"The first Orange Juice single I bought was Blue Boy, the second single," says Teenage Fanclub’s lead singer and guitarist Norman Blake. "I was born in 1965, and this was 1980, so I was the perfect age. I found it pretty inspiring, I guess; I mean before them, I was listening to a lot of post-punk stuff, and then along came this group that was influenced by Buffalo Springfield and Al Green and soul music, but they were into punk stuff too, which was pretty liberating for a 15-year-old."

Ian Parton of Go! Team talks to the Japan Times.

Does Parton hope to do music full-time? "I think I might go a bit mad if I worked on music all day," he admits. "As soon as this becomes too serious, it's going to lose something, you know? If it becomes a career . . ." he pauses. "Well, I hate that way of thinking about it."
