Scotland’s premier exponents of 21st century funk, Glasgow-based seven-piece Federation of the Disco Pimp merge elements of old-school, disco, psychedelia, rare groove and jazz into their blistering live sets, interspersing original material with occasional cheeky covers. Firm favourites of BBC 6 Music’s Craig Charles, they recently released their second album Inamorata, recorded in Brooklyn with top US producer Joel Hamilton.

Winners of the Billy Kelly Songwriting Award for their darkly hilarious track ‘Suffering from Scottishness,’ Ayrshire band Dumb Instrument used the prize money to record their debut album, 2014′s The Silent Beard, whose idiosyncratic, incisively observed songs have seen them likened to Michael Marra and Ivor Cutler.
