Biography

There are several artists named “Glitterbug”,

1) Glitterbug is Berlin producer Till Rohmann.

2) Glitterbug were formed in 1996 in London by Leighton Carter (vocals) and Tim Smyth (bass). Richie Bennett (guitar) and Ringo (drums) completed the lineup soon afterwards.
Whilst still unsigned, they played on This Morning TV show aka Richard and Judy. Glitterbug signed to Edel Records in 1999 and released 3 singles, The Music Saved Us, Today Tonight Tomorrow and London’s Burning. In 2001 they toured with Icelandic pop group Bellatrix in 2000. Shortly after this Glitterbug recorded an album’s worth of demos entitled the Moon Sessions. The material from these session are sketches of what would have, when accompanied by the three singles above, formed their debut album. Unfortunately before this album was recorded Edel Records went into administration. In 2001, Glitterbug bounced back with an EP entitled ‘The Time Is Now’, named after the ‘fan favourite’ song. In 2002 Glitterbug looked set to storm the UK Charts with a power-pop version of Madonna’s ‘Just Like A Prayer’ following live appearances on BBC TV and a well received music video hitting the playlist on the music tv channel ‘Scuzz’.

    This is great, but how do his tracks have more listeners in the last 7 days than over the last 6 months?

    this is a little messy... there is the band that ceased to exist a couple of years ago, and the producer/dj glitterbug with the supershelter album... how does one separate the two?
