Biography

London, United Kingdom (1993 – present)

Elevate were a short-lived but inventive guitar-based band, formed in London in 1993. They released two albums (Bronzee, 1994 and The Architect, 1996) and several singles on Robin Proper-Sheppard’s Flower Shop Records. Musically, they sit somewhere between The Fall and Slint, while always ploughing their own very particular, and very British, furrow.

Elevate bring out the grimmer aspects of - in comparison to the likes of early Sonic Youth and Girls Against Boys. The band split up in 1997.

Members were Tim Ward (Lord Ward NYC), Graham Miles, Paul Collyer MBE (of Championship Manager fame) and James Elkington (now of The Zincs)
