Indafusion (Martin Little, Peter Little, Gary Haldane)

INDAFUSION is a band from Dunfermline, Scotland. A dynamic three-piece rock outfit, they have been together since 2001. Martin Little does singing and guitar, his brother Peter does bass and singing and Gary Haldane does drums and cymbals. Martin and Pete write the songs; Gaz makes them shimmy. Melody and finely-crafted songs are the beating heart of INDAFUSION, but each member brings a wide variety of musical influences to the bands sound. Mixing powerful riffing with uplifting choruses and psychedelic, progressive embellishments with lyrics that are enigmatic, humorous and poignant. INDAFUSION have always looked beyond their small-town origins. A love of science fiction manifests itself in songs about aliens landing in Fife, the perils of space travel and the teenagers of the future, amongst many others. INDAFUSION have had notable recognition on the Scottish scene. As well as national airplay on BBC Radio 1's Session in Scotland with Vic Galloway and Gill Mills, the band have also performed a live session for Vic's AIR show on BBC Radio Scotland. Jim Gellatly is another supporter the band with his show Beatscene (Beat 106) - Jim has regularly played previous recordings and featured the band in his weekly 'Beatbreaker' interview. In 2003 BBC Radio Nan Gaidheal's RAPAL show showcased INDAFUSION as their featured band of the week. INDAFUSION have played live all over Scotland in venues large and small. Notable performances have included T in the Park and The Edinburgh Festival. The bands superb live show has gained them a dedicated following, particularly at their regular gigs in Edinburgh. The band will continue their quest to bring their music to towns and cities all over the country, and plan to travel around the UK and beyond very soon. In early 2004, Edinburgh-based independent record label Circular Records signed INDAFUSION on the strength of the bands live show and demo recordings, Circular are delighted to be releasing Sweeping The Stars INDAFUSIONs new album, in April 2004 A.D. The band chose unorthodox surroundings in which to record the Sweeping The Stars a studio in the basement of a decaying hotel in an old Scottish seaside town. With producer Andy McGregor, (whose previous work includes Glasgows Dogs Die in Hot Cars amongst others), Martin, Peter and Gary laid down twelve tracks amongst the old beer-taps and dusty glasses of the disused hotel bar. When the band werent creating visions of the future in this eerie environment, they explored the promenade and took in the amusement arcades and ice-cream parlours; relics of the golden age of the British summer. The album includes many of INDAFUSIONs finest songs to date and is poised to make a lasting impression upon its release. Amazing new material is already written the band and Circular look forward to bringing you new releases in the coming months.
