WE know how hard it is to get your music heard. If you are unsigned, or releasing material on your own label or on a Scottish independent label, we want to hear it. Write to: Rick Fulton, Soundcheck, Daily Record, One Central Quay, Glasgow G3 8DA. Sorry, but we can only return demos that have an SAE.

The Felt Tips Symbolic Violence SUCH is the growing success of the indie-pop quartet that on Sunday they play a festival in London before doing gigs in Paris and Berlin later in the year.

The album has been nominated as record of the week by a Barcelona radio station. If we all agree that the godfather of British indie was Edwyn Collins, then his DNA is all over The Felt Tips.

Iron Lady sadly isn't about Maggie (how timely would that be), but In the Heat Of Summer singer Andrew Paterson sings: "Everybody hates a Tory, cause the Tories are all scum."

On The Threshold has all the jangle of The Smiths (who owed a big, big debt to early Collins' Orange Juice) as singer Paterson asks: "Where were you when I was 10 years younger?" Colour in your life with The Felt Tips.
