Did Someone Inquire About the State of Scotland?

I can't tell if this is a really cool idea, or a very, very silly one. Some high-profile Scottish bands are working with acclaimed writers to create a batch of songs that produce a "time capsule" image of where Scotland is at in 2005/2006. Hmm.

There's a lot of potential for lameness here, but there are also some great bands attached -- Idlewild, Teenage Fanclub, Belle and Sebastian, and Trash Can Sinatras (that last band has taken to spelling trash can as one word after having spelled it properly as two earlier in its career, but I refuse to participate in that madness).

My only question is whether Belle and Sebastian will insist that their assigned writing partner focus on the current tea-party habits of Scottish girls and the current imagined heartbreak of Scottish boys. Stay tuned...
