SHOGUN Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Nineteen-year-old Joe Heron, from Paisley, AKA Shogun is one of the fastest rising stars being associated with the increasingly popular Grime genre.
The young rapper/emcee’s lyrics are sharp, perceptive and politically charged. Videos for recent tracks ‘Unrivalled’ and ‘Vulcan’ have been viewed nearly three million times on YouTube and he featured on a recent BBC documentary highlighting some of the UK’s best new artists.

One of our festival highlights this summer, were The Vegan Leather performing at Electric Fields Festival back in August. The self-described art-pop four piece from Paisley, surfaced in 2014 with the song Days Go By, whose blend of female vocals and quirky keyboards boasts the joyous charm of Talking Heads spin-off the Tom Tom Club.
Recently, their track This House has been so deftly remixed by Lewis Gardiner from Prides [complete with a meaty bassline], it threatens to upstage his own compositions. The new version will be launched on 20 November at Glasgow’s Broadcast, as part of the free Basement Sessions night, with the video due to get its first airing on the trailblazing [www.tenementtv.com].
LISTEN to This House via this link, http://bit.ly/1Y4pJUV as well as a French version of Days Go By [Les Jours Passent], complete with accordion accompaniment.
For those who can’t make the November gig, the band return to the stage for the EmuBands Christmas party on 3 December [at Glasgow’s Hug and Pint].
Already firm favourites of ours, we expect The Vegan Leather to become a highlight for many more people in 2016. www.facebook.com/TheVeganLeather
