The Rusty Hip Collective are based in Dundee, Scotland and our aim is to unify and strengthen the local music scene through positive action.
There’s no lack of active musicians, bands and artists in Dundee, but there is nothing to unite currently separate scenes.
The Rusty Hip Collective aims to strengthen the overall music scene through the following means:
- We will put on and promote local shows, not along genre lines, to develop a sense of community.
- We will produce a bimonthly zine which will give you a taste of what's going on in local music (and how you can get involved for yourself).
- We will also form a point of contact which will involve not just creative practitioners but everyone. We need the audience; if no one comes to the gigs, then it's a fruitless endeavour: We need people to come and support bands.
Our aim is to bring together as many people as possible to benefit everyone; musicians, artists in other creative media, punters, venues, and other relevant local businesses.
Most importantly of all, we are going to be positive. This isn't about elitism or segregation of individual bands and sounds; it's about getting things moving.
So whether you play music, appreciate music, bake, cook, knit, sew, paint, write or serve drinks; get involved!
If you download this compilation, you'll find a copy of issue #3 of our zine included.
