Fit to Work are a quasi-autonomous, non-governmental punk act based in Glasgow. Poet and performer Harry Josephine Giles (they/them) joins old schoolmates Daniel Firth (he/him – Cradle of Filth), Iain Stewart (he/him – The Phantom Band) and Duncan Harcus (he/him), to blast a scathing invective over a frantic backdrop of hardcore punk, with elements of thrash and grindcore. They released their debut EP ‘CD ROM #7: Dealing with anger in the workplace’ in 2017, covering a range of often-political themes with songs varying in tone from deadly serious to seriously silly. They have since brought their relentless live show to festivals and venues around the country, and released a second EP, ‘Voluntary Severance’, in 2018. The band plans to release a full album in 2020.

Fit to Work were commissioned by the National Library of Scotland in 2018 to write and record a piece of music about a 1962 mathematics exam paper. When we figure out how and why that happened, we’ll let you know.
