The iQons evolved in their final year of school in Clydebank, Glasgow. They started the band as a school project and it progressed from there and they’ve been playing together since 2006 and are loving every minute of it.
Although just into their twenties,they have played all over Scotland with some amazing bands, supporting Golden Silvers, Stone Gods, Viva Machine, Zoey Van Goey, Drive by Argument, El Dog and The Features to name but a few.
In 2006 they won the XFM Radio Rock School playing alongside The Fratellis, The View, Biffy Clyro, Idlewild and Ocean Colour Scene.
“Their Pop epics, like “Living Up for the Letdown” and “Adventurous” have the habit of rushing into full-blown anthems …. a tangle of thumping drums and crunching guitars ,,,,, like a ruck between Belinda Carlisle and The Ruts. Ace !” AAAA ( Awesome ) Stephen Hughs, News of the World.
The Iqons ‘Gentlemen We Can Rebuild Him’ – Xfm Scotland Rock School winners a couple of years ago, they opened the 2006 Winter Wonderland at the Carling Academy.
“They’ve just sent me 5 new tracks, and quite frankly my jaw dropped. Very very special band.” ( Jim Gellatly)
