"Ally MacCrae of BBC Radio 1 quote on 'Help! Help! Imposter!'"

'First, I'll say Sax definitely sells...I loved that track! It just worked!' - BBC Radio 1


"The Fiction take the spoils in fantastic finale"

"Blending the math rock elements of Biffy Clyro with grand and spacious prog-rock sounds, the band boast a very individual musical style.

In a superb set there were moments of emotion and tenderness, and this was backed up with a technically gifted rhythm section as well as the very interesting inclusion of brass in the shape of saxophone.

As well as being impressive technically and connecting with the audience through consistently catchy vocal melodies, the band are not afraid to hit the distortion pedal and open things up with more alt-rock sections in their songs, particularly the rousing finale to their set.

Guitarist and singer, Greig, sticks to his thick Scottish accent while performing and that adds enormously to the band’s refreshing and individual sound" - STV

Bio

Glasgow based 4 piece Alternative band "The Fiction" are:

Bass/Backing Vocals: Gus Stirrat.
Guitar/Vocals: Greig Millar
Drums: Mark Scobbie
Sax/Keys/Everything Else: Scott Murphy

Formed in the summer of 2010, The Fiction was created with the intent to bring something new to the scene. Elements of Jazz, Alt Rock, Soundscape, Power-Pop and Prog collide to form what we hope is a new breed of music.

We dub it 'SAX ROCK'.

STV wrote this wonderful piece about us:
