Fiction Factory

Fiction Factory

Profile:
Scottish Pop Rock/Pop Brit Funk band.

Formed in 1983, Perth.
Before they started their project Fiction Factory, Kevin Patterson (vocals), Eddie Jordan (keyboards), Grant Taylor (trumpet) and Chic Medley (guitar) played in The Rude Boys (later shortened to The RB's), a skinhead ska band.
CBS asked the band to create a concert playing band, so they enlisted Graham McGregor (bass) and Mike Ogletree (drums and percussion) - a former drummer of Simple Minds.
The track, "(Feels Like) Heaven", became a UK Top 10 hit in 1984,[1] (also reaching the Top 10 in Germany and Switzerland) and was used in a 2009 television advertisement for Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
After their second album, Fiction Factory disbanded in 1987. Patterson eventually left the music industry and currently works in the IT department at the University of Dundee.
He has a wife and two children.
Patterson and Jordan reunited to perform "(Feels Like) Heaven" with a backing band at Jordan's wedding in August 2007.
Medley went on to work with the Scottish world music project, Mouth Music.
The band have reformed just for the Rewind Festival of 2011, involving original members Kevin Patterson, Chic Medley, Graham McGregor and Eddie Jordan.
