Here is the latest news on our Edinburgh fundraiser in aid of Scottish Autism..
into Autism hits the Voodoo Rooms on Thursday 11th October, showcasing three of
the best bands in Scottish music to raise fund for music therapy.
The OK Social Club
Fronted by live wire Raff Eragona, The OK Social Club are a fast-paced and
fun-fuelled outfit from Edinburgh. Razor-sharp guitar licks and punching vocals
are layered over rolling snare to create that old school indie sound that made
bands like The Strokes, The Libertines and The Cribs so good. Their energetic
live show promises to raise the roof. Raff said: “We are delighted to be part
of Tune into Autism as both myself and Chris Finn, our guitarist and vocalist,
have family members who are affected by autism so the cause is close to our
The Holy Ghosts
This Edinburgh five-piece includes members from The Stagger Rats, The Complete
Stone Roses and Down the Tuny Steps, drawing influence from all the greats to
create an irresistible rock n roll sound with a dash of country and blues
thrown in. Currently in the studio recording with renowned producer Owen Morris
(Oasis, The View, The Verve, Ash), the band are taking a break to appear at
Tune into Autism. Guitarist John Mackenzie said: “We are really proud to be
involved. It’s an amazing feeling to know that we are helping people with
autism to get the best support they can in life. The fans of all the bands
involved will also be made more aware of Scottish Autism, which will hopefully
inspire them to get involved with the charity.”
This hotly-tipped folk-pop outfit are traveling from Glasgow to share their
brand of highly amusing musical magic and support the cause. Singer Adam Ross
said: "I was pleased to be asked to be
involved in the event. I think it is important for music therapy to be promoted
and funded. It is good to know that people with autism can benefit from the
interaction and creativity associated with making music and I hope that ‘Tune
Into Autism’ project will continue to help provide care and assistance to those
who need it."
