The Shills



The Shills formed around childhood friends Ed Bateson, Dickon Collinson, Rob D'Ath, and brothers Olly and Tom Yates in Cambridge. In 2008 they released their debut single, Raison d'ĂȘtre, with independent Cambridge label, R*E*P*E*A*T records. Shortly after its release, they were discovered by London based Strummerville (The Joe Strummer Foundation for New Music) who gave them artist of the week and posted the single on-line. Raison d'ĂȘtre went on to become one of the most downloaded songs in Strummerville's history.
