IRVINE WELSH

‘Irvine Welsh is now a national monument.’ (The Scotsman, 1997)

"I kind of don't really have much to add about Trainspotting, other than I'm still interested in the characters and enjoy writing about them. As long as that vibe is happening with me, I'll carry on doing so." (Irvine Welsh)

Irvine will world-premiere new work with a Trainspotting pulse.

What does that mean? There’s one way to find out more…..this is it.

THE FIRE ENGINES

"I liked Orange Juice. I thought they were great. There was an electric group. The Fire Engines. I loved them. What's happened to them? If they had been from America they would have been world-famous." (Mark E Smith / The Fall).

The Fire Engine reform for the third (and perhaps final?) time.

ARTHUR BAKER

Born in Boston Massachusetts, Arthur Baker is an internationally renowned DJ, producer, re-mixer. He has worked with Bob Dylan, Al Green, Bruce Springsteen and New Order.
