"Get past the novelty that drummer Sarah Tanat Jones also sings lead vocals and witness the ample skills on show from this Edinburgh power pop trio and you’ll concede this is no gimmick. We assume sublime singles ‘Wheels’ and ‘Start the Sound’ are only the start of it all." - List Magazine


"Singer/drummer Sarah Tanat-Jones has a voice like an angel. The oft-used 'ones to watch' seems entirely apt here." - The Skinny


"Top 20 must see bands at T In The Park 2008!" - The Scotsman


"Making the same joyful racket as Los Campesinos! with half the band members is quite an achievement – by my maths, that makes them twice as talented, and holy hell, that should worry all of us. Plus, the prospect of them recording with ex-Delgados drummer and Phantom-Band-producer Paul Savage seems like a match made in whatever heaven is usually inhabited by intelligent, euphoric pop monsters." - http://showburner.com/blog/live/come-on-gang-sneaky-petes-edinburgh-16th-jan


"Come On Gang! are a Scottish 3 piece band formed at Edinburgh Art College in 2007. They make punchy pop music with punky guitars, easy melodies and the Marling-esque vocals of drummer Sarah Tanat Jones. Her shaken but strong voice elaborates over the quirky post-punk melody lines, fast-paced riffs and 3-part chants - Come on Gang! sound like Laura Marling singing on a Maccabees demo, with one give-away strand of pure garage rock shining through on occasion. As the myspace self-classification of Pop/Lyrical/Post-Punk suggests, this consistently upbeat pop band have a distinctly guitar pop edge, which in no way detracts from their lyrical and compositional maturity.

They formed in June 2007 and have already played a series of festivals and dates around Scotland and London. They played Reading & Leeds festival's BBC Introducing.. Stage, as well as SXSW in Texas, The Great Escape & Hinterland. They have two singles out, Start The Sound and Wheels, but no news of an album or any release date. Catching them live or buying their music whilst they remain album-less might be difficult, but is definitely worth it - but even if you find yourself restricted to their MP3s, it will brighten up your morning and stick in your mind." - http://thismusicwins.blogspot.com/2009/09/come-on-gang.html


"Sounding like a more melodic version of the much-missed Long Blondes - if that's possible - the trio pack in enough promise to this short, sharp 20 minutes for fans to wish that their eagerly awaited debut album was already here. Instead, annoyingly, they'll need to wait until later this year. In the meantime, they make do with live versions of cracking songs like Fortune Favours The Brave and Spinning Room - and savour every moment. Led by singing drummer Sarah Tanat-Jones and distinguished by the inventive guitar playing of Mikey Morrison - who seems to be channelling Edinburgh punk pioneers The Scars - tonight they opt for ragged enthusiasm over the spark and polish of the recorded versions. Even so, it's impressive stuff that bristles with energy and wide-eyed enthusiasm. If you haven't joined the Gang yet, on this showing it's time you checked 'em out." - News Of The World

Bio

Come On Gang! are a three piece band from Edinburgh, Scotland. Formed at Edinburgh College of Art in 2007 they swiftly set about writing upbeat, danceable tunes that are full of infectious melodies, brazen guitars and words that demand another listen.

The lead singer, Sarah, is also their drummer, and her unique brand of lilting, tuneful singing makes for a sound unlike anything else around. Teamed with Mikey on guitar and Rob on bass, they create an incredibly exciting, captivating live performance. The band have been sharing stages with acts ranging from Noisettes and Florence & The Machine, to Doves, White Lies, Glasvegas and Mumford & Sons, and have clocked up a range of festival appearances - most notably South by South West, T in the Park, Rockness, The Great Escape, Reading and Leeds Festivals.

Voted Vic Galloway's Unsigned Heroes, and one of the top 100 Hottest Things in Scotland, Come On Gang! had their debut single, Wheels, feature in many end of year polls - including The List's Top 20 Songs of 2008. Their acoustic sessions appeared on the BBC's Rockness 09 coverage, and they performed on Balcony TV in Dublin in June 2009.

Come On Gang! are currently recording their debut album with acclaimed producer Paul Savage (former drummer of The Delgados), who has worked with acts such as Franz Ferdinand, The Phantom Band, Arab Strap and Mogwai.
