Introducing... Oscar Charlie

Share this article

Hailing from the wind-battered, desolate islands of Shetland (which they describe as 'tropical'), Oscar Charlie are kindred spirits John Gair (drums), Reuben Quinn (guitar/vocals) and Jim Bevington (bass), who found an outlet for their rage in playing pop songs to strangers.

In the summer of 2008 the trio relocated to Glasgow, where they fell in with wayward electro soul, Jamie Miller (synths).

Since then, the band formerly known as Black Bic Biro have been gigging extensively, most notably at In The City, the top music industry showcase held in Manchester.

In 2009 the quartet are buckling down to work on a collection of sonic delights with a little help from producer chum George Atkins.
