The Cribs

Yorkshire, England's the Cribs features three brothers: vocalists/guitarist Ryan Jarman, bassist/vocalist Gary, and drummer Ross. The trio began playing together at an early age, making their debut at a family party in the late '80s when twins Gary and Ryan were nine years old and Ross was just five. The brothers grew up with similar musical tastes, blending quintessentially British influences like the Beatles, Sex Pistols, and Smiths with American indie rock like Beat Happening and Bobby Conn. Eventually, the Cribs got to play with both Beat Happening's Calvin Johnson and Conn; Conn liked the band so much that he invited them to record with him in his Chicago studio. The Cribs released three singles, Another Number, What About Me, and You Were Always the One, before signing to Wichita Records in late 2003. The band spent 2004 readying their self-titled debut album, which was recorded in London's famed Toerag Studios, touring with the Datsuns and performing at that year's CMJ Festival. Late that year they began working on their second album with Orange Juice's Edwyn Collins as producer. The Cribs was released in the U.S. in early 2005. Later in the year, the band issued their second album The New Fellas.

The Cribs will release their new album "Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever" on May 21st, LP & CD through Wichita Recordings. In North America it's released July 10th through Warner Brothers. The album is preceeded by a single "Men's Needs" out on May 14th on Ltd 2 x 7" vinyl, CD Single & Download. The video for the song made a lot of controversy. Check why :) The Cribs have been confirmed to play at this years Coachella Festival. Recommended!
