There is more than one artist with this name: 1) A is a British alternative rock band. They formed in 1995 in Suffolk, England. The original line up was the three brothers: Jason Perry (Vocals), Adam Perry (Drums) and Giles Perry (Keyboard), with two friends Mark Chapman (Guitar) and Steve Swindon (Bass). Swindon quit the band in 1997 and was replaced by Daniel P.
Carter. After changing their name from 'Grand Designs' and abandoning their early progressive-inspired sound for a more punky feel, they released their dÃ©but album "How Ace Are Buildings" in 1997. The second album; "A vs. Monkey Kong", followed in 1999.
Monkey Kong was a more poppy record than How Ace Are Buildings and the band toured the world, played festivals and enjoyed a small degree of success worldwide, especially in Germany. Hi-Fi Serious was their third album, released in 2002. It was preceded by their biggest single to date, "Nothing", which saw the band reach the UK top ten for the first time, eventually hitting number 9. Starbucks was also a top 20 hit, named after the coffee chain.Make A+ Playlist
