The only way is up for Bassment

A KELSO teenage band have made it through to the Scottish finals of a UK-wide music contest.

Josh and Sam Osbourne, James Marshall and Matt Laidler, aka Bassment, will perform at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on Saturday, March 31.

The four Kelso High pupils have performed together since first year and write their own material.

They were picked in front of hundreds of other unsigned hopefuls at the audition stage to make it to the Scottish finals of Live and Unsigned.

The best acts will then perform at the grand final at the 02 in London, where prizes include band development and investment totalling £20,000, and gig opportunities at festivals across the UK and the world.

Bassment previously made it to number one in the Scottish charts of the Next Brit Thing contest in 2011.
