Biography

Glasgow, United Kingdom (2006 – 2011)

Dananananaykroyd were an indie rock band which formed in 2006 in Glasgow, Scotland. The band’s final line-up consisted of Calum Gunn (vocals, drums), Duncan Robertson (guitar), David Roy (guitar), Ryan McGinness (bass), John Baillie Jr. (vocals) and Paul Carlin (drums). Original singer Giles Bailey left after the release of the bands first two singles and was replaced by Gunn. Drummer James Hamilton left the band after the release of their debut EP “Sissy Hits”. Bassist Laura Hyde left the band in June 2009.

In 2006 Dananananaykroyd released two limited edition 7” singles, “Totally Bone” and “Some Dresses” on Moshi Moshi and Jealous Records respectively. A Japan-only CD EP, collecting both singles, was later released on Kanazawa’s Klee/Rallye records. Singer Giles Bailey left the group and was replaced by drummer Calum Gunn while John Baillie Jnr joined the band on drums and additional lead vocals.
Dananananaykroyd released their first EP, Sissy Hits, on London-based Holy Roar Records in June 2008. Shortly after, they introduced ex-Russia drummer Paul Carlin as their new (other) drummer after James Hamilton of Errors left the band. Dananananaykroyd signed to Best Before Records shortly thereafter, and recorded their debut full-length album Hey Everyone! in the US with producer Machine.
The band have toured the UK extensively with bands such as Foals and in 2009 completed a European tour with the Kaiser Chiefs. They played at the Reading and Leeds Festivals in August 2009.
In June 2009, the band announced that bass player Laura Hyde had left, and would be replaced on tour by Ryan McGinness.

    I never appreciated them when they were around, and now the second album is blowing my mind and they're gone.

    Dammit, another one I missed the boat on... annoying as hell when your new favourite band have already disbanded.

    Wow. I had no idea they had broken up. They broke up just after the release of their second album too. Ah well :(

    All you in Europe are so lucky to have gotten the chance to see them. They never crossed over into North America.

    I'm so glad I got to see them before they broke up. I didn't see it coming when I saw them in the summer (2011) I've liked them for so long but never saw them before then, thank god I did! They were really good!
