No, no, don't worry this isn't some sort of chillout special (although we did actually do one of those once upon a time). The only reason this is called the Chillcast is because on what was a beautifully sunny day for the rest of Scotland, Edinburgh performed its age old trick of drawing a freezing sea mist off the North Sea - the haar, as it's called - and turning a lovely Spring day into a damp, chilly sulk. Bastard.
I realised a while back that I don't actually cover all that much Scottish music, despite the location of this blog being quite a prominent feature of the thing. This week, though, we have something like five Scottish (or Scottish-based) bands on this, and all of them relatively under the radar ones as well.
Anyhow, I am off to play nicely with Mrs. Toad's colleagues for the rest of the day, in some sort of horrific bonding exercise. Ah well, it pays the bills I suppose, and it's not like she doesn't have to spend an awful lot of time hanging out with my 'colleagues'.
