LONDON beckons for Bo’ness band The Future Capital, who have landed a gig at the Brixton Jamm supporting Mark Morriss of indie rockers The Bluetones.

Singer-songwriting guitarists Allan (25) and Mark (20) Monaghan, Liam Duffy (20) on bass and drummer Kyle Grieve (19) take to the stage on Saturday, March 9.

Formed in 2009, Allan describes their music as being for fans of the Stereophonics and The Eels, with main influences also including The Beatles and The Killers.

With King Tut’s appearances already under their belts, and a second EP being recorded, they hope this biggest gig to date could open even more doors.

“It’s just a great opportunity that we couldn’t refuse. We are hoping to get a lot of our fans down there with us,” said Caledonian Produce employee Allan.

“It’s a chance to play in front of people that are figures in the music industry. Hopefully something will come of it. We just have to do our absolute best and hopefully someone will like what we do.”

By day brother Mark is a computing student at Glasgow University, Liam works for a building company, and Kyle studies music at Stevenson College in Edinburgh.

It was there that The Future Capital were busy putting down the first couple of tracks for their new EP last weekend.

A release date is yet to be confirmed, but it could be before they play the Brixton Jamm.

nThe first EP is available on iTunes. Check out band info at www.thefuturecapital.com and on Facebook.
