Last Night’s TV was formed in September 1999, and for the most part comprised the core trio of Spencer Bayles (vocals, guitar), Sarah Jones (violin) and Natalie Long (vocals), with a revolving collective of additional musicians, including guitarist/percussionist Owen Marriott and members of fellow Leeds band Nikoli.

Highlights from the band’s career included involvement in Leeds’ annual Bright Young Things project, and winning a BBC covers competition with their interpretation of an Offspring song. A planned gig in New York had to be cancelled when Spence was rushed to hospital to have his appendix removed a couple of days before the flight. Not wanting to anything by halves, it broke the Guinness world record for Largest Appendix Removed. Alas, the record has since been broken again.

Last Night’s TV released four self-produced albums of melodic lo-fi songs, ‘Too Much In Doubt’ (May ‘02), ‘Daylight Between The Blades’ (Oct ‘03), ‘Letters Without Envelopes’ (Feb ‘05), and a fourth, ‘Local Knowledge’ in November 2007, the release of which coincided with the band calling it a day.
