I love local bands and unsigned music. While there’s a lot of rubbish to to get through, every so often I come across some great songs. Fair enough, the band might only one or two but it’s worth sifting through the tens of myspace bands adding me each day.

We’re lucky to have access to thousands of unsigned bands music but it made me wonder how many great songs have gone forgotten and lost over the years in times before we had youtube and myspace. I decided to start searching for unsigned and local bands from other decades and came across a local band from Glasgow called Scheme. A Glasgow forum had a nostalgic thread talking about the days when this band sold out the 3,500 capacity Apollo in the 80’s while not being signed to any label other than their own.

You can visit their myspace here to watch a video about the band. Below is one of many of the songs recently uploaded to youtube.
