Biography

It’s 1998. Swindon is enjoying a rare moment of success with Billie Piper’s ‘Girlfriend’ at Number One in the charts. Oblivious to this, Charlie nervously makes his way into the unfamiliar Year 2 classroom at his new primary school. Sam is sitting on the carpet, eagerly awaiting the start of lessons. Adam is busy eating crayons in the corner…again. Charlie tentatively sits down near Sam. Sam looks up from his new big boy’s shoes (with real laces) to see a face he doesn’t recognise looking lost and a little upset. “Hello,” says Sam “Who are you?” Charlie blinks before replying quietly, “I’m Charlie…”

Fast forward eleven years to 2009. Adam, Charlie and Sam have been writing, gigging and recording for the last four years. They’ve gigged all around the country, been played on Radio One several times, become the first and only unsigned band to sell out Swindon’s 300‐capacity 12 Bar and been featured in Q Magazine. In the last year they’ve also spent entire afternoons watching The Office, eaten everything in Charlie’s cupboards on a tri‐weekly basis nearly making him homeless on one occasion, argued about everything from reverb to The Faces vs Rod Stewart and shared many a bath together.

So go on, indulge yourself in The Alfonz and their youthful Swindonian charm…
