Biography

Leeds, United Kingdom (2006 – 2010)

Leeds based band Grammatics formed in April, 2006 with best friends Owen Brinley and Dominic Ord deciding to form a band after the demise of Owen’s previous band - Colour of Fire. The line-up was pieced together with the addition of Rebecca Dumican and Rory O’Hara and Michael Repeat. They spent the next few months writing and rewriting songs. Perfectionists to the last, the band waited until that October to begin playing live. This paid off and their live performances quickly gained them a reputation as a band to look out for on the Leeds scene. The inclusion of their track “The Shipping Forecast” as the opening track of Leeds label Dance To The Radio’s “Something I Learned Today” compilation saw them start to gain attention nationwide.

Meanwhile tensions within the band, who openly admit to their fondness for arguments, were making progress difficult and in May 2007 Michael left the band to work on other things, going on to form slacker-rock band Wonderswan.

The band continued to build on their already formidable reputation; a Japanese EP released in 2007 sold out, as with their debut 7” release on Dance To The Radio.

After a whole month of touring with Bloc Party as part of the “Bloctober” Tour, and a hometown stage headline slot at the now infamous Brainwash Festival, Emilia Ergin retired from her position in the band and was promptly replaced by former Mother Vulpine guitarist - Lins Wilson.
