The Cinematics are a Scottish band currently based in Glasgow. They formed in Glasgow in autumn 2003, although they already knew one other from their hometown of Inverness. Scott (Rinning; lead vocals, guitar) and Ross (Bonney, drums) relocated to Glasgow for university, whilst the other two band members Ramsay (Miller; lead guitar) and Adam (Goemans, bass guitar) moved to Glasgow to attend music college. The band were signed by Lenny Johnson, head of A&R at TVT records in 2005 after playing at an “In the City” showcase gig in Manchester. The band cite their influences as ranging from The Clash to Talking Heads, and are making a name for themselves in supporting acts such as The Editors, We Are Scientists and Snow Patrol. Enjoying success in the USA and continental Europe, as well as the UK, with their singles “Chase” and “Break”, The Cinematics’ next single, “Keep Forgetting” will be released in February 2007. Their long-awaited debut album “A Strange Education” was produced by Stephen Hague (New Order, Blur, Pet Shop Boys), and is scheduled for release on 5th March 2007.
They are playing at Slim’s in San Francisco on April 24th.
