LA (Lucy Alexandra) was born into the grandeur of the QMC, Nottingham. 1987 didn’t know what had hit them.

Much to the dismay of her parents, L.A had a terrible fashion sense and cut off all her hair when she was 10 making her indistinguishable as a girl.
She was send to boarding school at 14 for being a shit, smoking weed and making out with girls.

At the nazi camp of ratcliffe college L.A. confined herself to the music department because she didn’t fit in with the ‘cool kids’ and taught herself to play the guitar and piano by means of a dvd and playing by ear. She still cannot read music and refuses to learn.

After she was released from the camp L.A. was offered a place at MADD in Nottingham, which was a waste of money but at least some studio time was used to record ‘otherside’ with gathered a following of about 10 people.

LA moved to Leeds to go to Art College in 2007 and is still there, moping about and catching taxi’s and bumping into people when intoxicated. She is open to playing gigs/festivals and house parties and has been quietly building her fan base out of lego blocks.

LA has played at the following nights/venues/festivals including: Horsefest, Durham. Coastival Festival, Scarborough. TEST Space exhibition for Limn, Leeds. The Gaslight Club @ Oporto, Leeds. Home Grown & Vocal, Malmaison, Leeds. Beatnik Boutique @ The Art Org, Nottingham.
