All four band members hail from the Middleton area of Greater Manchester, and have known each other since they were ten years old.
The band's debut single, "Cavorting" was released on August 6th 2007 by Loog Records. The single sold out immediately, with all available copies pre-ordered by their friends. A second single, "Acrylic" was released on October 22nd 2007 reaching number 44 in the UK Chart, the video also received considerable playtime on MTV2.

You spend too much time sat in your bedroom, on your PC
Are you sure you couldn’t have found the time,
Swallowed your pride and admitted your jealousy
Sometimes I’m bad, sometimes I’m rotten, sometimes I say things I probably,
should have forgotten about people or things
Do you know who I am, I’m like a Morrissey with some strings
