Colchester’s finest return with first album in over a decade

2003 was an interesting year. Homeland Security was officially formed. Manchester United won the Premier League and Arsenal won the FA Cup. The Human Genome Project was completed. Maurice Gibb, Curt “Mr. Perfect” Henning, Edwin Starr, Nina Simone, Noel Redding, “Classy” Freddie Blassie, Herbie Mann and Elliott Smith all died. Dizzee Rascal won the Mercury Music Prize with this debut album. Girls Aloud had their first number 1 single with Sounds of the Underground. The Libertines were riding high as the ‘best’ band around causing a storm up and down the country, and Blur released their last album Think Tank. To call it’s gestation difficult would be an understatement. Multiple producers and studios made for such a fractious atmosphere guitarist Graham Coxon left the group. While Think Tank wasn’t as bad as the reviews said, his presence was defiantly missed.
