'Time to change the record': Scots film aims to expose music business sexism and champion 'forgotten' women

SCOTLAND has produced an array of top female musicians and singers from Annie Lennox, Sharleen Spiteri of Texas and Lauren Mayberry of Chvrches to Amy Macdonald, Lulu and Liz Fraser of Cocteau Twins.
But now there are plans under way to better recognise the role of women in Scottish music - and highlight the obstacles they face including sexism through a new film.
Some £17,000 has already been raised to get archive footage for the Since Yesterday documentary that will feature 80s pop punks Strawberry Switchblade as well as Grammy award-winning KT Tunstall.
Since Yesterday: The Unsung Pioneers of Scottish Pop aims to celebrate the songs, stories and journey of Scotland's all-female bands from 1960 to 2010.
