Born out of the gritty Glasgow rock scene, Lonehead are a powerful three piece band playing their own brand of melodic alternative 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 lead guitar of Glasgow legend ‘Uncle’ Jim Keilt, the band are currently on the roster of Glasgow’s Reaction Management.
Lonehead 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 huge support from the beard of doom, Tom Russell’s on Celtic Radio who was “blown away “ by their sound. 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 out now. Following the release of EP ‘Too Long Gone’ and a string of singles a new Lonehead song, ‘Heavy Weather’ is out now supported by live appearances across the country.
“Lonehead make a departure from their usual punchy, melodic alt rock sound with a flowing, spacey ballad. ‘Heavy Weather’ is a bitter sweet love song about fidelity for someone struggling with every day life. Recent releases have dealt with issues around society’s relationship with the internet and social media. ‘Heavy Weather’ with it’s emotional, personal lyric and its haunting melody and hypnotic guitar line shows Lonehead producing a classic track with an eternal theme”.
