Bombay Bicycle Club

Who would have thought the channel 4 competition The Road to V would bring us to such a great conclusion. The winners of the show were the now famous and brilliant Bombay Bicycle Club and like any true rags to riches tale they went from unknowns to performing at the 2006 V Festival and quickly came their first single also.

Steadman, MacColl and de Saram like most great bands met at school and forged a friendship. Given the challenges of band life it always seems like those who have a true friendship have more of a chance of progressing.

They originally named themselves The Canals and after several name changes settled on Bombay Bicycle Club after a chain of Indian restaurants in London. The lien up changed several times to until a chance meeting at a funeral brought Ed Nash into the band.

Their status progressed as artists when in 2007 the NME declared the band ‘The hottest to come out of London for some time’ as the band released their debut EP entitled The Boy I Used To Be on their very own record label Mmm......Records.

Whilst not to many hit single were came from the album festivals and shows followed along with more praise from critics and propelled them with momentum into their second album  I Had the Blues But I Shook Them Loose. Now graduated from their studies it was a time for the band to really attack their musical career.

More shows followed in Reading and Leeds as well as T in The Park and dates such as Liverpool, London and Birmingham started to create a real sense of identity amongst the UK audience. The band had evolved from competition winners to real life live artists. It’s unfair to label them competition winners as they were always serious musicians but it was the public perspective that changed more than the band.

After signed with Island Records they went on to release the single Always Like This and their first steps on the ladder were created. Following the release of I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose the following year whilst recording their new album Flaws they won Best New Band at the 2010 NME awards beating off stiff competition from La Roux and Mumford and Sons.

Fans of the band have loved everything from the early days to the brand new a A Different Kind of Fix though critical acclaim hasn’t gone hand in hand with commercial success on the level expected but we’re absolutely certain there is a lot more to come from these guys.
