THIS IS GLASGOW, GLASGOW COOL

Glasgow has an amazing musical heritage thanks to
stalwarts such as Primal Scream, Franz Ferdinand plus
Belle and Sebastian. The city is gaining international
recognition as a centre of cutting-edge contemporary
art and Glasgow's School of Art attracts an
international mix of students who rock this city when
they are out to play.
Away from the city centre, a three storey warehouse
beside The River Clyde - a former Customs & Excise
building - offers 35 spacious studios to emerging
artists. It is quickly becoming a haven for recent
graduates. It feels like Berlin back in the 90s, NYC's
SoHo back in the early 80s, but the art is very now.
