Olaf Furniss and Derick Mackinnon, Scotland On Sunday, 24 April, Posable Action Figures

Posable Action Figures are Gareth Goodlad (guitar and vocals) and John Alexander (drums, samples and backing vocals), an electro, pop-rock band from Edinburgh.

For the past year, they’ve been tucked away in a Leith basement, writing and rehearsing and released their self-titled EP, (produced by David Lloyd of Stillhound / Discopolis) at the beginning of the month.

The results are marvellous; epic guitar riffs, infectious vocal melodies, tight staccato drums and samples – a brilliant debut. Single, ‘Mainline’ received a spin on Vic Galloway’s BBC Radio Scotland show last week. Watch the video for our favourite ‘Not At All’

The duo play Sneaky Pete’s this Friday, The Electric Circus on 20 May, Glasgow’s BLOC on 31 May and ButeFest on the Isle of Bute 29-31 July.

Olaf Furniss and Derick Mackinnon, Scotland On Sunday, 10 April, We Came From Wolves

Fresh from a tour of the Scottish Highlands, including a live session on Gaelic station BBC Rapal, Perthshire alt-rock quartet We Came From Wolves are starting to make waves.

Taken from their self-titled debut album, their latest single, ‘Ruiner’ was released last month via Saraseto Records and to date, they’ve enjoyed attention from BBC Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway, Jim Gellatly, Rock Sound, Big Cheese Magazine and Kerrang!

Live, the four-piece are a force of nature and their blistering shows have led to bookings as far afield as Slovakia, Germany, France, support slots with Frightened Rabbit, The LaFontaines and helped secure a Best Rock / Alternative gong at the Scottish Alternative Music Awards.

Their next gig is at Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh on 23 April as part of new multi-venue festival The Big Discovery Listen at: https://soundcloud.com/wecamefromwolvesmusic
