BIOGRAPHY

Unsigned Scottish quartet The Imagineers will perform on CBS’s The Late Late Show for five consecutive nights, from the 14th to the 18th of May, with each show averaging 2 million viewers.

The self-managed group, composed of Steven Young (vocals, rhythm guitar), Scott Bonnyman (lead guitar, vocals), Stephen Forbes (drums) and Ali Greig (bass, backing vocals), delivers melodic tunes dusted with notes of surf rock and catchy indie pop. The Imagineers’ passion and energy-driven live performance makes evident the surrealism and lust for life that their music conveys.

The band is set for their CBS shows coming off the success of their first demo EP See as I Say, which was followed by a rigorous tour schedule throughout the UK, culminating in a homecoming slot at Glasgow’s iconic Barrowlands Ballroom at the end of the year.

The Late Late Show Host Craig Ferguson and his team recorded a homecoming week-long Scottish special exploring his native land in March, filming a concert series in the Tron Theatre (Glasgow) with The Imagineers performing a selection of their songs. The band also recorded their own version of the Show’s theme tune, which will be used as the opening credits each night of the series.

The bands song ‘Imagineer’ was chosen by CBS for their promo video featuring stars; Craig Ferguson, Michael Clark Duncan (The Green Mile), Mila Kunis (That 70s Show, Forgetting Sarah Marshall), Rashida Jones (The Office, The Social Network) and Alex Salmond (Scottish First Minister). The video was aired on The Late Late Show for two nights on the 26th and 27th of April, and has generated alot of interest in the band.

Craig Ferguson sent his CBS team over to Scotland with the mission “Find me a band I would have wanted to be in 30 years ago.” Ferguson, former drummer with Glasgow band The Dreamboys, chose The Imagineers.

Craig Ferguson was on a mission.  The Late Late Show on CBS was recording a homecoming week-long special exploring his native Scotland back in March, and he charged his team with a task: “Fin’ me a band ah wid huv wanted tae be in 30 years ago.”  That’s supposed to say “find me a band I would have wanted to be in 30 years ago,” in case you can’t seem through Ferguson’s rich brogue.  That’s when his team went out and found the Imagineers, a Glaswegian quartet made up by Steven Young, Ali Greig, Bonnyman, and Forbo (and no, I’m not making those last two names up).

One listen, and it’s not much of a mystery to figure out why Ferguson chose these lads. Even when their songs cover topics that leans towards the dark side of things, there is just something really fun about their brand of nostalgic sounding indie-pop that sometimes has a proclivity towards the surf pop of the late 50s and 60s. When three-quarters of the way through “The Legend of John the Terror (Notorious)” the group takes a sharp turn and morphs itself into an uptempo march, they recall some of the finer pop twists that bands like Ocean Colour Scene or the Coral used to embark on during the heyday of their careers. For an unsigned group with only a demo EP and a boatload of touring under their belts, its a more than admirable result.

Will this be their big break stateside? If I could predict those types of things I could hire myself out to record labels and rake in the big bucks. What I can say is that it will surely garner them a nice chunk of publicity in front of a national audience, something that most bands can only dream about. So check ‘em out and watch for them on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson next week and remember, out heard them here first. The band’s music will be featured on the show from May 14th through May 18th (including their own version of the show’s theme), and their AA-side single The Legend of John the Terror (Notorious) / Dearest One will be released on May 13th.
