Well, the votes have been tabled,

points vigorously argued, and cassette players begged for mercy. The judging ol the 1988 List/McEwan‘s Lager/Clyde FM rock competition is now over, and.

The winners are THE HUMMINGBIRDS trom Glasgow, who win £300 worth at equipment or instruments from Sound Control music shops, a recording session in Radio Clyde‘s 24-track studio and the broadcasting at part at the session on Clyde FM 102.5. That's a prize worth £900 in total. As it happens, The Hummingbirds had already been booked down tor a Clyde session, so the length of their stay in the studio will be doubled.

In second place THE BEAUTIFUL SUIT Irom Edinburgh, who win £200 worth at equipment or instruments Irom Sound Control.

In third place THE STEEL CHAIN, also

' Irom Edinburgh, who win £100 worth at

instruments or equipment trom Sound Control.

In addition to the above, the three bands have been invited to show what they can do at a prestigious showcase gig in Glasgow, details at which will be announced in our next issue.

The judges— Graeme Moreland (Radio Clyde‘s Head at Music), Clive Ford (ol Sound Control shops), Craig Tannock (otTower Studios), and Alastair Mabbott and John Williamson (representing The List) - worked their way through 57 demo tapes, which ranged Irom high-quality studio mixes with elegant press packs to songs recorded in bedrooms by malfunctioning cassette recorders, accompanied by a Polaroid ot the back or the guitarist’s head taken at a party when he was 13.

0urcongratulationsto the winners, and thanks to all those who took part. Better luck next year! All tapes sent with SAEs will be returned as soon as possible.
