Wot, no Momus?

Inclement weather has stopped play this Whitsun Bank Holiday Monday, so take a look at Caledonia Dreaming, BBC4's documentary about - ahem - the "hidden history of Scottish pop music". There's been moaning n' groaning elsewhere about this doc's obvious omissions and its rather strange chronology. If, like me, however, you get excited when stuff you like is on the telly - or you're dead fond of BBC stock footage of post-industrial malaise - you'll be keen.

Perhaps skip through its disproportionate focus on "Blue Eyed Soul", though, unless you're really into Marti Pellow.

Postscript: Actually, my party-pooping distain for telly is entirely unfounded this week. The Challenge of the Sixties edition of Panorama was really rather wonderful - spooky, unsettling n' that.
