Biography

The Towers of London is a group whose style is a mixture of ‘77 punk a la The Sex Pistols and ’80s sleaze reminiscent of Guns N’ Roses. Towers of London have divided the opinions of the British music press since their emergence in early 2005. They are well known for their energetic live performances and outrageous antics, on stage and off.

Lead singer Donny Tourette was brought before Cambridge Magistrates’ Court in June 2005 for criminal damage during a show at Cambridge Anglia Polytechnic University in February 2005. Donny was said to have been swinging from an overhead cable which happened to pull down a canopy and broke scaffolding. He was ordered to pay £775 in compensation, court costs and fines. They have also appeared on television in their own documentary, entitled, believe it or not, “The Towers of London”.

The band signed to TVT Records in early 2005, on which they released a string of singles prior to their début album being released. The singles were “On A Noose”, “Fuck It Up”, “How Rude She Was,” and “Air Guitar”. They released their début album “Blood, Sweat and Towers” in June 2006. It was produced by Stacy Jones.

In January 2007, Donny Tourette made an explosive entrance to the reality UK TV show “Celebrity Big Brother”.

    I went to a bookstore earlier and I was surprised to find out that they're also selling CDs for a very low price. I saw Blood Sweat & Tears album and I thought that maybe I should hear it out. It's not that bad, though. I just didn't like it very much. Though it's ala Guns N' Roses-which is really my favorite band! I'm really not into punk bands. Oh, and did I mention that I only got their album for 45 Philippine Pesos only?
