PRS For Music has declared Bristol the UK’s ‘most musical’ city – with 3 Scottish cities in the top 10.

The non-profit organisation, which collects royalties due to songwriters and uses them to commission the surveys that fill the nation’s newspapers, has found that per capital most of its 65,000 members live in the west English town.

However, Glasgow came 4th in the survey, Edinburgh 6th and Paisley 8th. All three were however behind Bristol – home to triphoppers such as Massive Attack, Portishead and Tricky – and Wakefield*, inexplicably in second place despite never having had a chart hit, ever (probably). The much-misquoted survey also placed Paisley at 8th prompting many commentators to credit this placing solely to Paolo Nutini.

*The Cribs? Really?
