Longstanding leaders of Scotland’s amazing hip hop scene, Stanley Odd’s latest album STAY ODD: The Magic of Everyday Things, has officially entered this year’s SAY (Scottish Album of the Year) Award Shortlist (Top 10). As winners of this year’s public vote, the band’s fourth album which was released in April this year, will be placed alongside entries from the likes of Biffy Clyro, Mogwai and Arab Strap as a contender for the final £20,000 prize. To celebrate, Stanley Odd are going to play a very special gig in Glasgow city’s Room 2 on Saturday 27th of November (7-10pm) with Special Guests to be announced. 18+ gig.
“Stanley Odd make music for people that get tongue-tied talking to girls; clumsy people that dance awkwardly in their bedrooms; people that are generally uncomfortable in social situations; those for whom fashion-sense is an oxymoron; avid readers of science fiction and comic books; girls who drink tonic wine; anyone who prefers literary figures to viewing figures; disciples and architects of counter-culture. Stay Odd.”
Frontman Dave Hook, aka Solareye, said: “The SAY Award shortlist is a catalogue of musical heroics from the last 12 months, from Scottish music behemoths, to new music pioneers and supersonic explorers. It feels absolutely amazing to be in amongst all of that.”
Album/limited edition accompanying book available from www.stanleyodd.com
Clash Magazine: “Stanley Odd are one of Scottish hip-hop’s most visible exports, matching some wild production elements to those hard-hitting rhymes.”
The Skinny: “Stanley Odd have levelled up. The dry wit, expertly delivered social commentary and playful cap tips at pop culture are all there.”
NARC Magazine: “5/5…A true piece of art.”
BUZZ Magazine: “****…their most accomplished work yet.”
Ian Rankin: “A work of art… where beauty and anger meet and mate.”
Somebody once described them as Cerebral Geek Rap. Another person said that in a sane world they’d be bigger than Snow Patrol. Stanley Odd aren’t that fussed about what bracket you want to stick them in.
“See ye in Room 2! Stay Odd x

Bruce Devlin’s Badinage…
w/ Michelle McManus, Judith Ralston & Susie McCabe

Saturday 27th November 2021
19:00 - 22:00

Bruce Devlin presents an evening of badinage in his bold new chat show format. OUR SPECIAL GUESTS… MICHELLE McMANUS JUDITH RALSTON SUSIE McCABE Bruce Devlin’s Badinage: is exactly that, Badinage (a humorous conversation) with Bruce Devlin ‘chat show king, herald’ where he talks to the great/good/gallus, about anything and everything. Come and enjoy devlin’s citrus wit, deep probing questions and flagrant nonsense for a chat show experience like no other. Michelle McManus: Michelle McManus (born 8 May 1980) is a Scottish singer, columnist, and television presenter who won the second and final series of the UK talent show Pop Idol in 2003. McManus’s debut single, “All This Time”, entered the UK Singles Chart at number one in January 2004. Her only album to date, The Meaning of Love, was released in February 2004 and debuted at number three on the UK Albums Chart. Later that year, BMG dropped McManus from the label, and in 2007 she founded her own record label, McMannii Records. Later that year, McManus released a promotional single, “Just For You” from her then-upcoming second album Dancing to a Different Beat, which was scheduled for release in 2008 but was eventually shelved. From 2009 to 2011, McManus was a co-presenter of STV’s lifestyle magazine show The Hour, originally alongside Stephen Jardine and later Tam Cowan. She was also a columnist for the Glasgow Times until 2018. In early 2003, McManus auditioned for the second season of Pop Idol, along with thousands of other aspiring singers from around the UK. Of the four judges, Pete Waterman in particular was critical as to whether she could make a career in the music industry, mainly due to her fuller figure appearance. However, she was the favourite of Simon Cowell, and after being put through to the semi-final stages, the public voted McManus into the top twelve, though she entered the finals as the bookmaker’s rank-outsider. Throughout the finals, McManus was in the bottom 3 only once, and on 20 December 2003, she was declared the winner of Pop Idol. Judith Ralston: Judith Ralston is a weather presenter at BBC Scotland. She had been a presenter in some form or another at BBC Scotland for over 20 years. Her career in broadcasting has been wide and varied from appearing in Scot Squad, to presenting classical music programmes, comedy and news. She has been a guest or presented on most programmes across the BBC Scotland output. During lockdown last year,  she co wrote a book with her husband about weather for children which has received wide critical acclaim.
