It's not all gloom from the live venue world: King Tuts in Glasgow is doing so well, it's about to start up its own label. It's not looking to turn into EMI, though, says promoter Dave McGeachan:

"We're not trying to be a big label.We're more a platform to help the bands. We primarily want to help local acts, but we won't just have a Scottish profile. We're hoping to get another band in two or three months and next year build up to maybe 10 acts, when we'll release a compilation.

"I'm really looking forward to unearthing some of the fantastic new talent out there."

Each act will release just one single on the label.
