MUSIC NEWS Scotland + …..
the Scottish music industry’s weekly newspapers
MUSIC NEWS Scotland was born 19 years ago when dial up internet access was still around and desktop pc’s ruled.
So we did what had been done since 220 AD in China and every month put ink on a printing plate, ran some paper over it and hey presto MNS was published (okay it was a wee bit more involved than that, but the basic principle was the same!)
Move on to 2011 with high speed broadband and access to the www everywhere and the future was catching up with us rapidly. The volume of information flowing into MNS HQ was more than our monthly issue could cope with, and more and more Scottish music stories of great value were being spiked (an old press term not a dodgy drink). Reaching our vast number of readers in every conceivable nook and cranny of Scotland had always been a challenge monthly but to do that more often was physically not feasible.
So we have doffed oor tam o’ shanter to the future and MNS since early 2011 became a digital publication split into three titles that roll out weekly – and MNS itself now has 10 more pages than our old printed friend!
Thank you everyone so much for your superb support over the last 18 years allowing us to get to this stage, and please raise a glass to our digital future with you all.
Our aim is to circulate music industry news and to help to raise the profile of musicians and improve communications between genres.
