Rip It Up - Remixed
Summerhall - Dissection Room
Rip it up - Remixed is a night of Scottish pop music from the last 50 years with a twist. Ever wondered what the Bay City Rollers would have sounded like if they had been topping the charts now? Or what the songs of Chvrches would have sounded like if they had been around at the dawn of punk? Students from the BA Popular Music and BMus (classical) programmes at Edinburgh Napier University have been working on projects to interpret how that might have been. Taking influence from the featured artists at the National Museum of Scotland’s Rip it up – 50 Years of Scottish Popular Music exhibition, the bands have reworked songs by a variety of influential Scottish artists and will perform them in the style of another Scottish band from another era.
Acts performing on the night will be:
