Does the last great musical gatekeeper have any place in the industry today?  With everything that’s going on in our lives today – you’d be forgiven for seeing the announcement of 2021’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees pass you by.

Longing for sport’s return

30th March 2021

With so much of sport halted for so long, there are few more exciting prospects than thinking of what we will be able to do once normality returns. The coronavirus pandemic has hit sport hard. I have to admit that throughout my life, like many others, I have always taken sport for granted. People say ...

Review: OK Human by Weezer

29th March 2021

Weezer brings a much-needed sonic shift on OK Human, and the result is the best album the band has released in decades. The Weezer discography is, in diplomatic terms, tumultuous.

Couples that lockdown together, stay together

14th March 2021

Is locking down whilst you’re all loved-up everything it’s cracked up to be?  I, like many other students, spent the first lockdown last March back at my parents’ house. Ironically, during that time I lived closer to my long-term boyfriend than I had in the four years I’d been at UofG, but there was one ...


Is this Sturgeon’s final fall from grace?

11th March 2021

Dylan Brewerton-Harper explores what the allegations against Nicola Sturgeon mean for the SNP in the run up to May’s Holyrood elections. Watching parts of Nicola Sturgeon’s eight hour questioning by the Scottish parliament on Wednesday, my mind was cast back to the 2015 UK general election.

Can the Scotland Rugby team bounce back?

10th March 2021

Scotland are undoubtedly a wounded team, but there are reasons to believe that Scotland could have a resurgence.  After conquering Twickenham and making history, it seemed Scotland could only go up. The punters predicted that Wales would be brushed aside in Round Two and all eyes were pointing towards a potential Scottish Grand Slam. Alas, ...

Undergods is an entrancing, immersive dystopia. Undergods brings you into its “world” through the eyes of two post-apocalyptic scavengers, roaming a bleak and ashy wasteland in search of corpses to sell while they drink gasoline and swap strange tales through mouths of rotted teeth. Who are these people? Why do they do what they do? ...
