I want to see Glasgow again

The list of the top 50 Scottish bands is flawed, of course (like all lists), but at least it lets me appreciate how many great ones there are:

1 Belle & Sebastian
3 Idlewild
7 Teenage Fanclub
9 Primal Scream
19 Jesus and Mary Chain
20 Mogwai
26 Beta Band
33 Delgados
34 Arab Strap
41 Boards of Canada

And that's leaving off another at least ten that are merely really good or that I haven't heard enough of.
