FOUND (Chemikal Underground)

FOUND is the brainchild of art college buddies: Ziggy Campbell (lead vocals, guitar), Tommy Perman (bass guitar, synth) and Kev Sim (electronics, percussion). The band create an unusual mix of garage rock, melodic pop and glitchy electronica, which has lead to them signing a publishing deal with the highly respected Domino Records and a record deal with the outstanding Chemikal Underground.

FOUND began life as an experimental arts collective putting on many weird and wonderful events in art galleries, warehouses and even storage containers. Their most recent project, an emotional robot band called Cybraphon, captured the attention of the worlds press. Since its unveiling at the Edinburgh International Festival at the start of August, Cybraphon has been featured on national newspapers across the world (e.g. China, Brazil, Italy, Spain, UK), made the top story on the homepage of WIRED.com and has been covered by CNN and TV networks internationally including BBCs primetime arts show The Culture Show.

FOUND made their American debut at SXSW in March 2009 and followed up with a string of performances at CMJ in October 2009 where Brooklyn Vegan picked them out as ones to watch. In the UK they have built up a strong fan base and highlights of their live career to date include the BBC Electric Proms, T in the Park, Triptych, Brightons Great Escape, the Fence Collectives Homegame festival and Hydro Connect Festival.

Their self-released debut Found Can Move earned them an impressive amount of UK national radio play including support from BBC Radio 1 djs, Steve Lamaq, Rob Da Bank, Huw Stevens and Vic Galloway. Theyve recorded radio sessions for BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio Scotland including a recording in John Peels studio at Maida Vale. They also recorded an exclusive live session in the legendary Beatles Studio at Abbey Road for US radio station U-Pop XM 29. FOUND have a prolific output with two full-length albums and numerous singles / EPs in the last two years, with releases on Fence Records [uK], Creeping Bent [uK] and Aufgeladen Und Bereit [Germany]. The band have also become sought-after remixers and have recently applied their creative imaginations to reworking the music of King Creosote (Warner), Make Model (EMI), Attic Lights and) and Au Revoir Simone (Moshi Moshi).

2011 saw FOUND snapped up by Chemikal Underground who released their eagerly new long player factorycraft to wide critical acclaim. This has subsequently seen the lads*tour around the UK and beyond, and also playing lots of dates with The Phantom Band. In September they play End of the Road festival which is acknowlegement of what IMP have always known; that the laddies in FOUND are really quite innovative and special. A GREAT BAND!



KID CANAVERAL (Fence Records)

Kid Canaveral formed in St Andrews, Scotland, in 2004 with the band meeting whilst studying at the University of St Andrews. The original line-up consisted of: David MacGregor on guitar and vocals; Kate Lazda on guitar and vocals; Rose McConnachie on vocals and bass guitar; and Dan Sheehy on drums. The band played their first gig supporting King Creosote and The Pictish Trail in St Andrews. The band relocated to Edinburgh in 2006 in order to be able to play a greater number of gigs, and for the opportunity to play to a wider audience.

In order to release their own records David and Kate set up Straight to Video Records and between 2007 and 2010 the band put out four 7" singles (Smash Hits, Couldn't Dance, Second Time Around and I don't have the heart for this), two cassette singles (Left and Right E.P. and You Only Went Out to Get Drunk Last Night) and their debut album.

Original drummer Dan Sheehy left the band after the release of their fourth single in December 2008, to be replaced by Clarke Geddes after he drunkenly applied for the vacancy. Clarke parted company with the band to move to Switzerland in June 2009 after the initial sessions for the bands first album. Scott McMaster was announced as his replacement shortly afterwards. Their debut album Shouting At Wildlife was released on Monday 5 July 2010 on Straight to Video Records. The band toured the UK extensively and played a number of festivals in support of the album and recorded a live session for BBC Radio Scotland, playing tracks from the album and a cover of the King Creosote song 'Missionary' from Kenny and Beth's Musakal Boat Rides.

It was announced on 23 February 2011 that the band had been signed to Fence Records, and that the label would re-releasing Shouting at Wildlife on Vinyl in July 2011. Kid Canaveral completed a short tour of the USA in March including a number of shows at the 2011 SxSW festival in Austin, Texas. As well as their own performances, the band acted as King Creosote's backing band for two gigs, one at the Domino Records Showcase at Emo's and one at the British Music Embassy in Latitude 30. Kid Canaveral were filmed before and during SxSW as part of a BBC Artworks documentary about the festival.



RICK REDBEARD (The Phantom Band / Chemikal Underground)

Rick Redbeard is one sixth of Glasgow rock outfit The Phantom Band and sometime player with David Scott's Early Songs. He has been playing music since he was a wee boy growing up deep in the Aberdeenshire wilderness. In 2005, with the aid of some toy instruments and a broken violin, he made the concerted effort to begin writing and recording more of his own songs. He made his live solo debut early in 2006 and assumed the name Rick Redbeard which he stole from a pirate. One day he aims to live in a hut in the hills and communicate with the world through smoke signals and bird calls, but for now he uses words and the odd song or two. Sometimes he performs them in bars.

If you haven't seen the other thread in the gigs section, there's been a wee line-up change to this. Husband can't make the show and have been replaced by Iona Marshall (De-Fence Records). You may have seen her supporting Laetitia Sadier at The Tunnels before...

And here's a facebook link. Just for you.
