An early supporter of the band, Noel Gallagher first heard the group after receiving a demo that had been sent to his record label, Big Brother. Two years on he agreed to allow the band to record their debut album at his private studio Wheeler End. Others that have been permitted to record there include Kasabian, The Coral and Paul Weller. The Six Grand Plot garnered many hard copy reviews most notably from the NME, Clash Magazine[5] and Rock Sound. The first single taken from the album was "Pictures of Me" and gained an XFM Radio playlist, Q Magazine's song of the day[6] and the promo video was played on MTV1 and MTV2.[7] In 2008 they played the UK festivals Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party and Bestival as well as touring the UK a total of five times.
