Bloc Party

Biography

Picked from obscurity by Steve Lamacq after receiving their demo at a Franz Ferdinand show, Bloc Party's debut album 'Silent Alarm' entered the UK charts at number 3 and went on to receive a Mercury Music Prize nomination. Front-man Kele Okereke is a notoriously reserved entity: "why is it important to know what I had for breakfast?" he once asked a journalist. Damn it that's a good point.
