Loophole - The Biography

“Loophole are assault by soundscape; shimmering, rippling guitars underneath vocals which alternate
between a looping howl and a tuneful spitting, everything played extremely loud and crashing
into the audience at full force” -

Loophole are…

Mike Avent - Bass, Vocals
Robbie Jarvis - Drums, Percussion
John Young - Guitars, Vocals

Ben Sydes - Vocals, Guitars, Keyboards

Formed in late 2000. Band spent 2001 writing material that would be hurled upon crowds in 2002 including many gigs on the Cambridge scene such as the Boatrace, and the Portland Arms.

Loophole conceived their first recording in summer 2001. A five-track demo entitled “Better Waste of Your Time”; it delivered the band’s distinctive song writing to the world. Melodic and haunting yet gritty and challenging, reviews have elevated the band’s progress.

In 2002 they reached the final of the Ely Band Competition, where they picked up an award for best vocalist.

Kicking off 2003 New Year the band had a four-day recording session to produce their new three-track demo, “The Shimmer E.P”. This was sold at their biggest gig at the time: The Junction in Cambridge, a venue they have returned to several times since.
