Biography

Humanfly began in late 2000 following the dissolution of brothers (literal brothers, and also brothers in the MC5 sense of the word) John and Andy Sutcliffe’s old band Canvas. The line up was completed with the addition of J*R bassist Mat Dale and drummer Dave Jones.
We spent the first year or so developing ideas and getting used to looking at each others heads in a practise room in Leeds until late 2001 when we began playing shows.

Our first release came in the form of a split 7” with fellow Leeds peoples Kill Yourself (who feature James and Andy from the pretty massive That Fucking Tank) in 2003, followed a year later by the release of our first album, ‘A God Among Insects’, released via Martin Ives’ label Calculated Risk Products. A year later the label ran out of money and we were without a home.


By 2005 we had grown bored of playing fast music and in the interests of progression we decided that we should give our songs more time develop outside of the one and half minutes we had initially given them to do so in. With that in mind, we started writing “impossibly long songs” and eventually recorded them with our bud Ben Gardener. Ben is a dude (literally and in the Bill and Ted sense of the word) and anyone who knows him can attest to this fact. I like a good fact.
