Biography

British quartet Addict’s roots go back to childhood friends Mark Aston and James Denham. With Aston singing lead and Denham on bass, the two went through a succession of bands in their hometown of Cambridge.

Relocating to London in the early ’90s, they added Danish-born guitarist Nikolaj Juel and completed Addict’s lineup when drummer Luke Bullen joined in 1995. The band signed to Big Cat/V2 late the following year after tightening up as a live unit. In early 1997, there was the release of a limited-edition EP, which was well-received by the press and earned comparisons to Radiohead.

Enlisting producer David Bianco, who had come off working with Teenage Fanclub, Addict recorded their debut album, Stones, in Los Angeles, releasing it in 1998. Despite more favorable reviews, Stones failed to make much of an impact on either side of the Atlantic and Addict has been quiet since its issue…

After signing to V2 Records in 1997 Addict released their first album “STONES” in 1998. The band spent the next two years touring the record, predominantly in the states, until they landed in New Orleans to record their second album. The second record was to be a departure from the rock album that was “stones” as Mark Aston in particular wanted to move on musically and make a record that was more refined and mature than the first.

“COME ON SUN” was the result of six weeks in the studio with producer Malcomn Burns with contributions from the likes of Emmy Lou Harris, N’dea Davenport and the best brass section in New Orleans.
