Record Of The Week - Fickle Public
"Awesome. Brilliant." Mike Diver, Drowned in Sound
Scotland's answer to Burning Airlines. Fickle Public are the band that everyone asks ‘Who’s that? Sounds lethal!’
For good reason their debut album ‘Bucko’ is now discounted and available to buy at our eStore for a limited time only:
- CD now only £5.00 with FREE MP3 download
- Lossless now only £4.00
- MP3 now only £3.50
I caught up with Alan Ferguson (vocals & guitar) while he was flying across Europe to see what he is getting up to.
What have you been getting up to over the past year?
Over the last year I have mostly been working away for the man, so no real rock and roll lifestyle for me. In even more un rock news I just bought my first flat in Glasgow so the start of the year was taken up with painting etc.
Any current projects/new music?
As for musical projects, I have mostly been focusing on writing by myself on the acoustic. I have a few songs but I am unsure what to do with them. They are pretty mellow kind of similar to 'Another Exit Ruined By Stairfalling' on Bucko. I need to get my act together and recoerd them properly.
I quite like the idea of getting some kind of metal band together too. I have been listeni g to a lot of Converge, Crowbar and Superjoint Ritual lately and I have been feeling inspird. I am a bit wary of forming another band but I could always do it just for fun....
What does every day life look like for you?
I work for large public sector company doing analysis work on a large change programme. Quite a difference from a few years ago when we were boming up and down the M6 in a rusty old Transit Van. Other than that I enjoy going to my gym, Crossfit Glasgow, which stops me getting fat... I'm going to be 30 in July. How did that happen?
I see Jetplane are putting out another record. Maybe I should get my act together and record some music. If Jetplane can do it then I certainly can. They're ancient!
