Pop Goes The Revolution is now in its third series at Subcity Radio, curating unsigned and independent music from Scotland and the rest of the UK since 2008. As part of a one off the show brought in four of Scotland’s best unsigned acts to play an exclusive Subcity Radio session. These 11 tracks are all taken from that session.
After the show was broadcast the show asked people to vote for their favourite songs from the sets via the show’s Facebook page. The 11 songs with the most votes are here to download and keep.
You can listen to the rest of these recordings, including full sets by each of the bands at the Pop Goes The Revolution Sessions

Dirty Keys formed in late 2009 in Glasgow, under the leadership of local scene veteran Dave Gillies, sometime member of, amongst others, Jonny and the Robots, Izo Fitzroy & The Royal Bastards and The Martial Arts. Tired of playing other people’s music, Gillies decided to set out with his own material, self-described ‘piano rock’, citing as key influences the likes of Randy Newman and Ben Folds – strong melodies, witty lyrics, and impeccable musicianship. Having spent some time in the studio working on material with producer Brian Young, whose prior credits include albums by John Martyn and Simple Minds, the band is set to become a fixture on the city’s live scene throughout the coming year.

21/11/09 // The Count and Sinden came into Subcity to start the Death Disco birthday party early with a pre-club warm-up. We invited some of you lot to come up and chill in the Green Room while they're on air, it turned the place into a packed-out sweatbox for the show --it was a legendary night which will definitely be going down in Subcity history.
Now its available for download, yas!
Have a look at Subcity's flickr page for some photos of those idiots who made it down that. Their new album is available via Domino.
