There are two bands called Spector.

1. Spector the four-piece band from Dalston, London. Made up of Frederick Macpherson, Thomas Shickle, Danny Blandy and Jed Cullen. (Christopher Burman left the band in 2013.)

“Enjoy It While It Lasts”, Spector’s debut album, was released in August 2012 and reached #12 in the UK Albums Chart.

2. Spector the band have been around for a while now in one shape or another, in its original conception it comprised of John-Paul Denton and John Elliott but it is now just John-Paul who writes under this name.

In its early conception the pair worked on various tracks and remixes for the likes of Steve Lawler and Dave Seaman, and appeared on compilations by Nick Warren and John Digweed.

They have appeared on Playstaion, PC and Wii games and written for big TV ad campaigns. In the last 2 years John-Paul has been working on various genres of music under the Spector guise and recently began to complete his new pop tinged project of electronic fuelled dance music, with collaborations on each track from various singers, including John Elliott.

Record History

There first release was on a label called Sog in Switzerland; they signed a tune called ‘Drift away’ (2002) which they would follow up with a tune called ‘The Haze’ later in 2004.

They then appeared on Nick Warren’s Reykjavik GU24 album (2003) with a track called ‘Avatar’ - ‘Dub In Time’

    Vocalist sounds a little bit like Harry McVeigh from White Lies. Great voice, but music...It could be better band if they only want it.

    I would like to express my strong regret. Do you know what it feels like not to see a band like Spector when it's playing in your country? Stupid me!
