Michael Scott, from Ralston, discovered his love of music when he was in sixth year at high school and decided to try out the subject.

Since then he has gone on to study Audio Technology at Glasgow Caledonian University.

The 21-year-old was the last member to join after going on to the website joinmyband.com and seeing that they were holding auditions for a vocalist.

The former St Andrew’s Academy pupil then spent an anxious three weeks with band members Paul Curran, 21, from Erskine, Cameron Jamieson, 20, and Tomi Peto, 18 wondering if they had made their decision.

When he finally asked ‘So am I in the band?’ this provided some amusement as they had all assumed he knew.

Michael said the band write all their own music and it would be very rare to see them perform a cover.

However, they all have different tastes in music and where Michael would say they are influenced by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers fellow band member Cameron would strongly disagree.

Michael says that this works to their advantage as although they are all very different they “compliment each other well”.

Looking forward, the band hope to get their demos recorded and perform at festivals next summer.

He said: “I don’t know where it will go but I’m enjoying it just now.” Goon and the Kings, who regularly rock the stage in Paisley’s Bungalow Bar, will be performing in the Record Factory, 17 Byres Road, Glasgow on Friday, August 14.
