This week is dedicated to all things Britpop and Britrock from that greatest of decades – the 90’s! Working with your tutor your band will have the opportunity to discover some of the finest acts from this brilliant period of Britain’s 90’s Indie Scene – AND its not just all Blur and Oasis!
We’re pleased to welcome back two of our favourite guest tutors this week – the hugely talented multi-instrumentalist and songwriter David McFarlane (Tunna, True Gents, Red Pine Timber Company) and lead guitarist and singer from one of Scotland’s finest up and coming bands, Jon Mackenzie of The Holy Ghosts.
The week runs Monday – Friday 10am – 4pm with a Grand Finale Showcase gig on Saturday 17th October at award winning music venue, The Twa Tams in Perth.
The cost for this week is £125.00 per person inclusive.
This week we’re taking a look at what was going on on the other side of the pond whilst the 90’s British Indie Scene was exploding! Spanning many sub-genres from Nu-Metal to Grunge and Punk-Rock to Alt.Metal – the 90’s American Alternative Rock Scene brought us many of today’s best loved bands and influenced many more of NOWs biggest bands…

The final MASSIVE Showcase gig will take place in Dundee on Saturday 24th October and top Dundee Music Venue, Buskers!
