Bombay Bicycle Club
Bombay Bicycle Club are an indie rock band which formed in North London, United Kingdom in 2006 by Jack Steadman (vocals, guitar, bass), Jamie MacColl (bass, guitar, banjo, vocals), Suren De Saram (drums) under the name of The Canals when they were 15. Ed Nash (bass, keyboard, mandolin) later joined the trio as they switched between various aliases before picking Bombay Bicycle Club. The band took their name from a chain of curry houses in the London Area, and have since admitted that they dislike their band name. The band has released three albums, "I Had the Blues But I Shook Them Loose" (2009), "Flaws" (2010) and "A Different Kind Of Fix" (2011).
After winning the opening slot at V Festival 2006 ('Road to V' competition) and also played Reading / Leeds Festival for the three years running, in Febuary 2007 they released their début EP The Boy I Used to Be. This was followed up in October with the release of their second EP How We Are. In mid-July of 2009 they released their first album I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose consisting of 12 tracks. They are currently partaking in their biggest tour yet, including a sell-out date at London's Heaven venue.
In Summer 2010 they released their new album, Flaws. A UK tour co-incided with the release of the album which - surprisingly - is an acoustic recording. Venues on the tour reflected this new acoustic orientation. St George's in Bristol, for example, is normally used by classical and folk artists.Make Bombay Bicycle Club Playlist
