Encyclopedia is a rock band band from Yeovil, UK. Benjamin Wood and Oliver Herdsman started Encyclopedia in 2004. Encyclopedia made an album called 'So Hot Right Now' which was released in 2006 on T Shirt Records in the UK and in Japan on LittleBird Records the following year. The single 'Emily' came from this album and was released on Alcopop to no critical acclaim. As of 2009, Encyclopedia developed into a five piece rock band.
