IT might not be high on the agenda for most headlining bands, but Fatherson aren’t your typical headliners.

“We are determined to create the world’s best cheese pizza,” laughs frontman Ross Leighton in an exclusive chat with the Evening Times ahead of this weekend’s Tenement Trail.

Closing on a massive day of music at the Barrowland, Fatherson will be embarking on one of their biggest shows yet this weekend.

That doesn’t seem to phase them, however, because

they spent last night at The Amsterdam giving away

slices of pizza and listening to performances from VanIves and One Nine.

“I’ve actually just come back from a holiday, so it seems a bit of a grey return to Scottish winter with this weather,” says Ross.

“I’m really excited about this weekend. We’ve been going for the last few years but not officially played it – we did a secret show at it two years ago, before we put out our last album, but we haven’t actually played officially.

“As a punter it was always a good laugh with good bands. It’s one of those things, when you stay in Glasgow, and there are so many bands to go and see, sometimes you can miss things.

“Tenement Trail for me is one of those perfect ways to spend the day. It’s a strong line up.”

Fatherson seem to be one of those bands that have sailed past the notion of becoming dated, producing ever-beautiful albums of incredible range while not losing their initial reach as indie-rock guitar players.

Now on their third studio album, Sum Of All Your Parts, last year they completed their largest ever headline tour and are about to embark again on yet another tour in November.

“I still listen to that indie-rock music, but it just now seems to have a little bit more Drake dropped into it,” Ross laughs.

“I’ve been listening a lot to The Blue Nile, and Kathryn Joseph after we performed at Rip It Up not too long ago. Kathryn is doing something completely unique and it’s amazing to watch. I watched her cover of The Blue Nile’s ‘Downtown Lights’ and I think I had an out of body experience.”

“There’s a whole new scene that’s exploding in Glasgow, particularly with a new romantic feel. It goes back to Glasgow’s heritage of great music.

“Scottish music has always had that left field feel, and it’s exciting. Scottish music always ebbs and flows, it reinvents itself every 18 months. It’s great to be around the new scene but also keep in touch with the old.”

One foot in and the other out indeed. Luckily for Fatherson fans, their music has already proven itself durable enough to withstand the new waves of trends – even the culinary ones.

“We’ll find that pizza yet,” Ross laughs. And I bet they will.
