First ever Aberdeen Label Market in the morning

That's right. Tomorrow (or today, technically... oh, Saturday anyway) sees Aberdeen's first ever independent record label market, at the Lemon Tree, and albtwo will be there along with the likes of Chemikal Underground, Rock Action, Song by Toad, Olive Grove Records and Aberdonian labels including Cool Your Jets, Black Lake and Tuff Wax.

The Scottish Music Industry Association has held a few of these events in the central belt and they have had them in London too but never before in Aberdeen. Ever since local indie shop One Up shut its doors a couple of years ago the city has been sorely lacking somewhere for music fans to get their fix so John from 57 Degrees North has been trying to organise one here for a while. Good effort

It should be a great day - there are DJs and whatnot and a gig at the Lemon Tree in the evening too - Stanley Odd

Albtwo will be hoping to sell some music, obviously (free gift with every purchase - we've got a lucky dip box although we really wanted something a bit more like the tree stump from Flash Gordon) but will be mostly trying to get our hands on a copy of the new Mogwai EP on vinyl ahead of the official release date. We'll let you know how we get on.
