Biography

Guns For Lovers is an electronica and indietronic project band from Wales. It is the brain-child of a bored Thom James (Scarfboy), which came about after listening to loads of his favourite music and then spending an entire night emerged in loops and samples. The result was an entire album worth of songs.

Inspired by Mr. Scruff, Bonobo, Quantic, Nostalgia 77, Bent, Avalanches, Alice Russell, U.N.K.L. E, Digitalism, Amon Tobin, Atomic Hooligan, Beastie Boys, Spanky Wilson, Dirty Diggers, Pendulum, Erykah Badu, The Headcase Ladz, Boom Bip, Mylo, Daft Punk, Prefuse 73, Tom Vek, Widdy, The Limp Twins, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Thievery Corporation, Massive Attack and a host of Ninja Tune, Zebra Traffic and Tru Thoughts artists, college life was as chilled out as it was supposed to be.

When in college in winter 2005, one of his housemates introduced Thom and 2 others to the Hip Hop eJay program and set a challenge. Each of them make a hip-hop song and at the end of the night, they’d have a competition to see who’s was the best. Quickly finishing a “4-minute cross-genre epic with spanish/newport vibes” and committing some of the “worst lyrics thats ever been laid down”, Thom waited for the others to finish their tracks, so decided to have a fiddle around.
