This Et Al formed in Leeds near the end of 2002 and their sound has been compared to the likes of My Bloody Valentine and Queens of the Stone Age. All of their three singles have sold out within a week, and have had significant airtime on MTV2 and other music channels, as well as Radio 1, XFM, and other radio stations.
‘Baby Machine’, their debut album, is given a full release on Monday 9th April 2007 via their own label FC Recordings, distributed by Cargo Records. It’s preceded by the release ‘Of National Importance’ (backed with double a-side ‘The Mother Position’) as a 7″ single on Monday 26th March 2007.
