Showing off database driven websites

Hiya, it’s me again. Sorry I’ve no played with you since April 2015. Hope you haven’t missed me too much, the truth is, I have been cheating on you with another website. I decided to build my own DB driven website and I have decided that I now hate you.

Meall Glas

Region: Loch Lomond Weather: Cloudy, wet underfoot although no rain throughout the day. Cloud cleared later in the afternoon. Duration: 5 hours (we took our time) Company: Peter Stewart, Donald Stewart Went with both the McNeish and the Mountaineering Club book to decide which route to take. We stop off at Callander for some coffee and an […]

Medals – Irvine Harbour Arts Centre

Not only has JP Reid, once again, wow’d me with his excellent new(ish) album Medals – Disguises, but he also proved that he can be a fantastic acoustic performer. I was lucky enough to obtain tickets for their home acoustic show in Irvine, in a venue I had never heard of before. I believe this […]

Strathyre Music Festival

Foo Fighters Cover – My Hero

This year we were lucky enough to be asked back to the Strathyre Music Festival. We always have a great time in Strathyre and everyone is always very nice to us and they seem to appreciate what we do, which is always nice. This year we tried to stick to original material, especially since we […]

Les Duex Alpes GoPro Edit, April 2014

My latest GoPro edit from our trip to Les Duex Alpes. A great time was had, a slightly different group came away with us this year which was a great fun. I think they embraced many of our fantastic traditions like the devouring of bolognese crisps and raclette. Hopefully they’ll be back for another similar […]

Community shut off from Clyde Walkway

I often enjoy a walk along the Clyde Walkway. It runs past my home town of Carluke, gives people easy access to neighbouring towns and villages and it’s a great way to see what Lanarkshire has to offer. Posts featuring the Clyde Walkway Lanark To Carluke The Clyde Walkway 3 Valleys Of Lanark The Clyde […]

GoPro Edit – Courmayeur, Italy

My first edit after doing some filming with my GoPro in Courmayeur this January. I am experimenting with very very basic freestyle riding. Please watch in 1080p. To do this click on the small cog on the bottom right of the video. Filmed during a visit to Courmayeur, Italy 2014. Filmed on a GoPro3+ by […]

Biffy Clyro Paris

Biffy Clyro – Many Of Horror, Paris 2013

I was lucky enough to go to Paris to catch Biffy on their European tour for my 30th birthday. This is slightly ironic as I missed their Glasgow show, in April, due to me being in France. The wonderful Arcane Roots were supporting and on the whole the weekend was one of my highlights of […]

DJ Wakeboarding Intro

Beginner Wakeboarding Scotland

I have always wanted to give wakeboarding a bash and last year we were lucky enough to get out on the water a few times. We found some vouchers on Itison and went to the Dunfermline Water Sports Centre(www.waterskiscotland.co.uk). It’s been so good we managed to go a few times and we’re hoping to visit […]

Six Months On

Six Months On – Released 2007

After recording and releasing “A Night At The Railway” Sooth went through a pretty rough time. Not only did it take a year to release “A Night At The Railway”, but I decided to go to live in America for 4 months, the longest I had been away from the band since I was 16. […]

A Night At The Railway

A Night At The Railway – Released 2004

After recording our first EP  “Sooth” we managed to secure various gigs around Glasgow, mainly in venues like Strawberry Fields, The Cathouse and Barfly. At most gigs we were playing with bands that played really loud, pretty fast, and really LOUD. These were the days when the charts were infected (hopefully someone will get that […]

New music

This Summer has been great for some of my favourite bands releasing new music. Most have only released one track from their forthcoming album/ep to wet our tongues. Below are the tracks, enjoy. If I have missed any cracking songs then please let me know. The Unwinding Hours – Break This fantastic band is due to […]

Beinglas to Tyndrum

Length : 13.3 miles Duration : 6 hours (hour for lunch) Company : Jacqueline Lockhart, Andrew Ramsay, Brian Eley, Stuart Lockhart, Lisa Hainie Download the GPS file Yet again another visit to my favourite pub along the West Highland Way. Beinglas! I get slagged a lot about Beinglas as I kept talking about it during our trek along […]

Old Auction Ring

New Geocaches

Over the last week I have been working on some new geocaches. I have hot and cold spells with geocaching. I have discovered some fantastic places that I would otherwise not have known about it because of geocaching, although I can also say that I have felt many an anticlimax when finding an insignificant geocache. […]

Chvrches – Lies

This is a cracking tune that has been making it’s away around social media. From what I gather it is a 3-piece project from Glasgow involving the legendary Iain Cook from Aerogramme and The Unwinding Hours (He also mixed Sooth’s 2nd EP), and I believe someone from Twilight Sad is involved. Brilliant tune. Can’t wait […]

Doug @ Glentress

Cycling @ Glentress

Length : 15.1 miles Duration : 4 hours Company : Douglas Selfridge Download the GPS file I’ve never had a good relationship with bikes. Went over the handle bars a few times as a child and at the age of 12 I swapped the bike for a skateboard. Well it was a snakeboard but I won’t go into […]

Death of MCA – Beastie Boys Glasgow 1999

Absolutely gutted to hear the news of MCA. I have loved the Beastie Boys from a young age and they have always released fantastic material throughout their whole career. I was lucky enough to catch them live in Glasgow when I was 14. We turned up early, queued and got our position at the barrier. […]

Sooth EP

Sooth EP – Released 2003

Our first EP had the simple title of “Sooth”. The line up at this point was myself, Ian McDermaid, Malcolm Frew and David Frew. Our first band Dominate had finished about 6 months prior to Sooth and we weren’t too sure what to do with ourselves. We auditioned loads of singers for the new band […]

Sooth

Sooth 2002-2009

SoothMusic.co.uk has now expired and there is now no trace of my old band on the Internet. I thought I’d be OK with it. It’s been 3 years since we split up and we have all moved on. When the website went down I was annoyed that I didn’t save it all before hand, something […]

Lanark To Carluke

Length : 10.9 miles Duration : 5 hours (we took our time) Company : Lisa Hainie Download GPS File A last minute walk down the South Lanarkshire section of the Clyde Walkway. My girlfriend doesn’t really enjoy walking anymore than 10 miles, so this was ideal. The plan was to get the 10.45 train from Carluke to Lanark but […]

Here’s some awesome music – Make Sparks, Rewind

I have been lazy, really lazy when it comes to this blog. Been making websites for others, been busy at work and in life. To make up for it here is some awesome music. Enjoy. Make Sparks – Rewind

Happy Birthday Brian Eley – Maybe Later

One of my bestist buddies is turning 29 today, and I would like to take this opportunity to wish him an awesome birthday! I would also like to take this opportunity to let the rest of the world know how big a legend he is, and the easiest was I can do that is by […]

The LaFontaines – Paper Chase (Live)

I made this video after being properly impressed by the Font boys while touring their new single Paper Chase. I was lucky enough to catch them at their sell out gig in Stereo, and then at Be In Belhaven outdoor festival. It’s easy to make a half decent live video when the band put on […]
