Sevenoaks, Kent (2005 – 2009)

GoodBooks was an English indie rock band originating from Sevenoaks, Kent. They first received media attention upon releasing their self-published EP Valves and Robots in June 2005. The band signed to Transgressive Records in late-2005 for one single and released “Walk With Me” in April, before being snapped up by Columbia Records shortly after. GoodBooks disbanded after their last gig on 28 June 2009.

GoodBooks’ evolution began when Max and Leo started doing Beatles covers in their attic when they were 8 and Max’s mum used to teach Chris at primary school. It took till 2001 for the band to take shape when at Sevenoaks School in Kent, Max and Leo came together with Chris and JP to form The Fingerprints. The Fingerprints set about their musical career by self-recording two albums; Cards on the Table, Clothes on the Floor and Miranda. Tracks such as “Tangerine” appeared on local radio stations such as BBC Radio Kent and KMFM. The band also started gigging locally in the South-East during this time, with regular gigs at the Tunbridge Wells Forum helping them to develop a modest regional fanbase, even performing in front of 8,000 people on one eventful Christmas.

The Fingerprints disbanded in late 2004 when their then-bassist left. The band decided to continue as a four piece and on the day of their first rehearsal “Walk With Me” was created. The band continued to write more songs but this time they had a maturer more electronic-influenced sounds.
