SLEIGH BELLS was formed when Derek Bells met Alexia Sleigh. One day he was working in a resraunt to make ends meat because he was doing the music just for love, when he spied Alexis having dinner with her miother. Derek couldn’t beleve his eys and tilting down his trademark Raybands said:
Aleixs spat her soup all over her mother and was so please to see Derek they immediately started to talk about that day when she heard his mad guitat and how much they liked rock. In the middle of the dinner Aleixa realised just how her mother had ruined her life so far making her join a girl group and decided to just run off with Derek so they could play the music that there hearts sounded like. They moved to Brroklyn and started working on the songs together that would make them famous.
When they were at High School together she was a teenager that had to be friends with the popular girls, but had a deep yearning for metal music. Derek was the misunderstood loner who played hardocre punk guitar but had to keep his hair well presentable so he didn't attract the madness of the jocks. One day they met when Derek was playing his Poisin in the Well songs under the bleachers, and Alexis heard this sound and was like:
"What is that infectious hook guitar without evenm an amplifier?"
and itr was Derek so they met. They hit it off immediately with their love for the forbidden sounds of rock n roll but it was to be a long time before they could forfill there destiny to become SLEIGH BELLS together.
Alexis was forced by her mom to join a teen pop band called Prussion Blue which had a few albums but eventually broke down. Derek went on to live his dreams of being in Poisin In the Well but there was always something missing. They decided on the name of SLEIGH BELLS because it was there two names married together and was descriptive of the aloor Alexis would have on the gentailia fo the male portion of there audience.
Thanks to that fatefull day in the resteraunt ………the rest is history in the making.
