Kubb are a British indie rock band from London.Read More...
Harry Collier: lead vocals and bass
Dominic Greensmith: drums
John Tilley: keyboards
The band started to form when Harry met Ben Langmaid via mutual friend Rollo Armstrong (of Faithless fame). Rollo and Ben had studios in the same complex. Harry then met a friend of Langmaid's, Jeff Patterson. The threesome began writing together writing such songs as “Chemical”. Langmaid and Patterson however weren’t interested in being in the frontline of a band but Harry had energy and enthusiasm to spare.
Before long however the Kubb line-up was in place: Ex Reef member Dom Greensmith (drums) recruited via an old touring contact of Harry's; John Tilley (keyboards) fresh out Greenwich Conservatoire and recruited via an NME ad; and Adj (guitar).
Their songs have seen airplay on radio stations and they have headlined several tours in the UK, they have played two gigs at the Shepherd's Bush Empire, and have made guest appearances on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross (on December 16, 2005, and on the Jonathon Ross Radio Show on February 4, 2006). They also appeared on Jools Holland's show, Popworld, CDUK, the Des and Mel Show,The Friday Night Project with Justin Lee Collins and Alan Carr along with special guest Jamie Oliver and have appeared three times on Top of the Pops. They performed an iTunes Live from London gig at the London Apple Store, they have recorded a 'secret session' for Tiscali and the group appeared at V Festival and the Isle of Wight Festival.
