Fiction Factory

Perfil:
Fiction Factory was a Scottish New Wave/pop rock band formed in 1983 in Perth, Scotland, UK. The band consisted of Kevin Patterson (vocals), Chic Medley (guitar), Graham McGregor (bass guitar), Eddie Jordan (keyboards) and former Simple Minds member Mike Ogletree (drums).

Before forming Fiction Factory, Patterson, Jordan, and Medley played in the ska band The Rude Boys (later shortened to The RB's) until that group broke up in 1982. Shortly after the group's formation, CBS asked the founding members to create a concert-playing band, so McGregor and Ogletree were enlisted on bass and drums, respectively.

Their 1983 single "(Feels Like) Heaven" became a UK Top 10 hit (also reaching the Top 10 in Germany and Switzerland), although their followup single, "All or Nothing" failed to make the UK Top 100. The group's first album, "Throw the Warped Wheel Out", also failed to chart despite the strength of "(Feels Like) Heaven".

In 1985, the band released their second and final album, "Another Story", on Foundry Records. By this time, Eddie Jordan, Graham MacGregor and Mike Ogletree had left the group, with most of their roles being filled in by session musicians on the album. Neither the album or its three singles reached any commercial success, and Fiction Factory broke up in 1987.

After their disbandment, Patterson 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 reformed to play at the 2011 Rewind Festival near Perth, Scotland, including original members Kevin Patterson, Chic Medley, Graham McGregor and Eddie Jordan.
