Bands will include
Glasgow based 4-piece The Imagineers have enjoyed a very successful year since their debut gig in the spring of 2010.
The bands energetic Live shows combined with their well-crafted melodies have earned them favourable reviews from national papers ‘The Daily Record’ and ‘Evening Times’ as well as mainstream radio play in Scotland and the U.S on BBC Radio 1’s Introducing with Ally McCrae and on Clyde 1 with new music DJ Jim Gellatly.
The band’s first release, a double A-side single, featuring signature songs ‘Mariana’ and ‘Fairground’ was released on September 3rd through Independent label ‘Sunstone Records’ and digitally via ITunes.
2011 has already been busy year for The Imagineers as they began recording their debut EP in Glasgow’s renowned CaVa studios in early January with producer Brian O’Neil.
The Soviets are a five-piece hailing from Scotland (and they are certainly not the Soviets from Sheffield, another band who inexplicably come out top in a Google search). 'I Gotta Go' is their debut single, but you'd be forgiven for thinking it was about their tenth for the level of confidence they appear to have on the track. They don't seem like the kind of band who are messing around – no gentle warm up intro, no soft vocals, no easing us into the Soviets' way of life. It's straight into a ridiculously paced song, which turns out to be three minutes of absolute gold.
Lead singer Stephen Law sounds like everything that was great about music from the 60s. He conveys so much energy that at times it seems improbable that the guitars and drums will be able to keep up, but they do, crashing through your ears like an uninvited guest. Guitars are courtesy of Jamie Cairns and John Forsyth, while Sean Doyle tackles the bass and John's brother Stephen (keep up) is on drums. They probably practised for about two minutes before they recorded 'I Gotta Go' – it sounds like a brilliant happy mess of a song.
MATT FOTHERINGHAM (Playing his last ever solo show)
