The Memoirs - Ned Jones (vocals), Seb Doyle (guitar), Alex Perry (guitar), Jamie Irving (bass) and James Lyons (drums) met at Nottingham University and subsequently dropped out to form the band.
Their debut release, the 3-song Means to an End EP is a call-to-arms to take control of your life and change it for the better - flying in the face of monotonous work, anti-climactic weekends and the disappointment of fair-weather friends. "Huge. Huge Sound. That's like standing in the face of a Hurricane" - BBC Introducing.
Follow up single 'Fear on the Rise' was described as "post punk pushed through raw garage-rock filters". Praise indeed.
