Born out of the gritty Glasgow rock scene, Lonehead are a powerful three piece band playing their own brand of melodic alternate rock. Their sound, polished through many gigs in legendary haunts like The Scotia and the Clutha Vaults lands somewhere between Cream and The Manics or maybe Biffy, The Clash and The Who. Featuring the virtuoso guitar of Glasgow legend 'Uncle' Jim Keilt, the band have signed to Glasgow music label Frantastic68 Records/ iOcco Music. Lonehead have recorded 16 tracks featuring original drummer Craig Hadden and have released their debut EP 'Jazz Killer' and follow up singles 'Monkey Boots' and 'Clockwork Radio' which have picked up multiple radio plays including spins on American, European and Australian radio. This has included support from legendary DJ Tom Morton on BBC Radio and the beard of doom, Tom Russell's at The Max Radio who was ''..blown away with the band's live sound and didn't hesitate to play Lonehead regularly on the show...''
As well as this the band were nominated for Single of the year on Radio Six International and have reached no 17 in the Scottish New Music Chart.
Referred to as ''the Caledonian rock machine'' by Julian Marszalek of The Quietus, Lonehead are fronted by singer bass player Martin Jenkins and bolstered by ex Cosmic Rough Rider Mark Brown on drums. Lonehead's debut album 'Wonderful and how to get it" is on full digital release now. New single 'Swimming Upstream' is out Now.
