The Fire And I are an alternative rock two-piece from Scotland. Gordon Love and Hooligan Sadikson have moulded a very distinctive and powerful sound, often difficult to comprehend from their two members. The duo were previously half of a four-piece band, but Gordon and Hooligan chose to go it alone in a minimalist bass and drums set-up. Rather than finding new members, they found their sound and went with it. The Fire And I have received much acclaim for their adrenaline-fuelled performances and have often been described as a band that needs to be seen live.
“They put on an amazing show and really have to be seen to be believed.”
Amy Macdonald, Singer/Songwriter
