Biography

Wild Beasts are a 4 piece band from Kendal, United Kingdom now based in London, UK. Wild Beasts were formed in 2002 in the north western England town of Kendal, by Queen Katherine School students Hayden Thorpe (vocals) and Ben Little (guitar). They originally performed under the name of Fauve, the French term for "wild beast". In January 2004, schoolmate Chris Talbot (drummer) joined, and they changed the band's name to Wild Beasts. The following year another student, Tom Fleming (bass), became a full time member of the band. After A-levels, they all decamped to Leeds, where three of them enrolled at the city's university whilst Little worked at odd jobs.

    We're decadent beyond our means, we've a zeal
    We feel the things they'll never feel
    They're solemn in their wealth, we're high in our poverty
    We see the things they never see

    Lyrics
    Carry me hooting and howling
    to the river to wash off my hands
    of the hot blood, the sweat and the sand
    Any rival who goes for our girls will be left thumb sucking in terror
    and bereft of all coffin bearers
