Popualtion Four were from a town called preston (preston has earned that lower case p) in the Northwest of the United Kingdom. The Band formed from the remains of the bands Home Made Memory and Mirrored Emotion. Daff, Cooko and Si Started writing tunes in late 2007. Ceres joined soon after and when there original singer met a ruinous end wrestling a Kodak Bear in the Rockies of Canada on a camping trip gone badly wrong Rick was asked to join the band to take over vocal duties party because they needed a new singer and partly because they needed a fat guy so they could appeal to minorities.Read More...
All five members, and yes we are aware of the inconsistency of the name, had been active participants in the music scene of preston and its satellite towns for sometime and so we had come to know one another through our different exploits over the years.
Work on our first record entitled “Liberate” started soon after. Several months of arguing re recording guitars over and over and frayed tempers later it was finished and we were ready to unleash it on the public. So we had an album launch party. Some people even came and bought a copy of the CD. Shortly after this we replaced our guitarist Daff with a sexier robot version of himself, no one has noticed, but we have always had trouble getting his hair quite right.
After a few gigs in preston and winning the local battle of the bands, much to the frustration of several far more established and angry acts Population Four decided to record some new songs, they're quite good and are currently available on an E.P we call 2009. because we finished it it Early 2009 clever eh? We're currently in the process of trying to take our music to other towns around the United Kingdom.
We're quite proud that if you put our name in to Google most of the results are about us. It's a small achievement but it's nice one. Maybe it's our ticket to immortality. We're not the prettiest band in the world. Which is a bit of a problem in the current musical climate, nor are we the most Indy of bands, which is another clear problem but we don't mind too much.
We do what we know and what know is Rock music, not Pop Punk, Metal, Grindcore, Scremo or some other sub genre, Rock is a perfectly adequate adjective to describe Population Four. If you need something more specific someone once said we were a Ska Band In a review, but they were wrong.
