Albums list animates arts desk

SINCE the arts desk on free, daily newspaper, Metro Scotland, started up in November nine years ago, it has never had – according to an insider – as animated a debate as it did yesterday.

Said section editor, Rory Weller, late last night: “We’re still arguing about it. Our conference is 10.30am, daily, and it’s never been as heated as it was today.”

It follows a blog written by music editor, Nadine McBay, on the paper’s website, which itself was in response to the publishing of a list, this week, of the 50 Best Ever British Albums – as voted for by readers of Q Magazine.

When she spotted the list did not include a single Scottish band, she set about choosing her own, favourite ten Scottish bands, ever.
