Mad Hatters sees the return of The Fire and I to Mad Hatters on Saturday October the 12th.

There may only be the two of them but  Gordon Love and Hooligan Sadikson create a very distinctive and powerful sound. They are The Fire And I who are an energetic 2 piece band using only Bass and Drums, with occasional synth.

Rave reviews have followed them wherever they go with Resound Scotland saying “”The Fire And I are one of the best bands in Scotland right now.” Dead Earnest write “44 minutes of mind-bending, jaw-dropping musical addiction that’s arguably the most sensational thing you’ve heard come out of the UK indie scene in years”. said of their first album Stampede Finale “This record is a sheer delight from beginning to end, combining the very best of unashamedly catchy punks and the depth of post-hardcore into one tidy package. A record not to be missed. (9/10)” also had words of praise “Evoking Biffy Clyro at their most experimental, Blood Red Shoes at their heaviest, and DFA9179 at their most genius, there’s certainly a bright future for these guys.”

There is a lot to like about The Fire and I, so why not pop down to Mad Hatters on Saturday to see what the noise is all about

Chartered surveyor by day, music reviewer by night, and occasionally I get to use my camera. A strange mix, but one that I enjoy. A chance meeting in the queue for Bella in 2010 led to the opportunity to write for InvernessGigs; a far cry from the days of writing for a football fanzine back in the late 80s, early 90s. My interests lie between the mainstream, the emerging and the local. Increasingly I find that we have more than enough locally to entertain us to necessitate a trip south. I’m always happy to give a listen, whatever the genre. Inverness has a plethora of talent, all of which I am more than keen to write about. If it encourages just one person to make the effort to listen to some new music I’ll be happy. You can contact Frank direct via
