AFTER THE WELSH, IT'S THE TURN OF THE SCOTTISH: Another Home Nation, another Tsunami benefit. Although they've set a target of a quarter of a million, which is more modest than the Welsh effort, the Scotland gig has a far better line-up: Franz Ferdinand, Belle & Sebastian, Mull Historical Society, Mogwai, Idlewild, Teenage Fanclub and Trash Can Sinatras. Okay, there's also Deacon Blue, Travis and Texas, but that'll give you a chance to pop out for lollies and a drink. February 19th at the Glasgow SECC, and now Northern Ireland, England: we're waiting.
