Go, Cat, Go! A brief look at Scottish pop and rock

Friday, July 20th, 2018


The cats here at Hot Tin Roof are really looking forward to visiting the Rip it Up exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland in the coming weeks. Scottish pop and rock has had some real innovators and trailblazers down the years and we continue to be at the cutting edge of the music scene in many ways. It’s just amazing what a country as small as ours can achieve.

Why we love Edinburgh!

With Edinburgh recently being named the best place in the UK for tech, we thought we’d check in with the Hot Tin Roof cats and get the lowdown on what else the city’s great for.

Check it out.

The Hot Tin Roof ‘Blue Monday’ playlist

Monday, January 15th, 2018

It’s ‘Blue Monday’ today – that day of the year when it all seems so bleak and gray. The festive season is just memory and the only real reminder are the sad, forlorn, once magical Xmas trees lying beside the black bins.

But don’t despair – research has shown that music stimulates our emotions and we’re going to throw a short playlist your way to elevate your mood and chase the January blues away.

A Day in the Life of Jane

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015

Here at Hot Tin Roof we like to know the answers to the important questions, to this end we asked Jane, the latest cat recruit, to give us the lowdown.

Here’s what she said:

Lunchtime! What do you do and where do you do it?

Food should nourish the soul as well as the body, so I try and avoid falling into the shop-bought sandwich trap – it’s too depressing trying to force down a soggy flavourless sarnie that’s 3 days old!

I like to bring leftovers or healthy salads whenever possible, but if not I’ll pop to somewhere nearby like Social Bite. I think it’s very important to support local businesses and know where your food is coming from. Social Bite is committed to using quality ingredients, and I really admire the work they do to help homeless people get back into work. It doesn’t hurt that their food is also delicious!
