Adapted from wiki:-

The Cinematics were an alternative rock band founded in 2003 and disbanded in 2011. The band consisted of Scott Rinning, Larry Reid, Adam Goemans and Ross Bonney. The members originally met while at school in Dingwall but the band itself was formed in Glasgow, signing to TVT Records in 2005 after playing at an In the City showcase gig in Manchester.

They would go on to make two albums, the second of which was on Orchard Records after TVT went bankrupt. There was also a handful of singles and EPs.

The band never really got beyond cult status in their native city and by 2010 had relocated to Berlin where work began on a third LP but it was never released.

I did see them on a few occasions, the first being in 2005 when they were a decent support act to Editors at a packed King Tut’s in Glasgow. This was one of the singles from the debut LP, A Strange Education, which came out in March 2007:-
