Biography

Leicester, United Kingdom (2004 – 2008)

Elle Milano were an alternative rock band based in Brighton, UK signed to independent label Brighton Electric. They were fronted by Adam Crisp, who also played guitar and keyboard. He was joined by Chloe Dunford on bass and backing vocals, and by James Headley, who played drums and keyboard, and did backing vocals.

Their beginning can be traced back to when Adam and James met in 2002 whilst at sixth form college in Farnborough , Hampshire. There, they formed the band Psirens. When the pair moved to Leicester, UK in 2004 to study Music Technology, Chloe and Alex Peterson (also from Psirens) joined and formed Elle Milano.

In 2005 they signed to Brighton Electric and on 3rd April 2006, they released their debut EP; Swearing’s For Art Students. The band are known for having a large catalogue of songs that have been given out via the Internet and at gigs; many were recorded during the album sessions in 2006, which would be self-produced by Adam and James. As a four piece the band adopted outlandish on-stage personas, pretending to be former models called Kobé Winona (Adam), Mr. Alexander Ross Petersen (Alex), Betty K (Chloe) and Jé Suisse (James). Kobe and Je had their own bands, the Konsoles and the Juggernauts respectively, from which the odd track would emerge, usually via Myspace.

After Leicester the band relocated to the home of their label, Brighton, UK. On 11 September 2007, it was announced on the band’s Myspace that guitarist Alex Peterson had left the band. Their first single as a three piece was My Brother, The Astronaut, released on 5th November 2007. Meanwhile In Hollywood… was released on 30th March 2008, followed by album Acres Of Dead Space Cadets two weeks later (14th April 2008).
