Who?
Martin is a timelord from the planet Gallifrey, currently in his fourth incarnation. Richard and Paddy formed the rump of scottish art pop
collective, Jock. David was smuggled out of Pomerania as an infant at the outbreak of the Franco-Prussian war. It seemed only natural they pool their resources and form a band.

From?
Not new cross.

How did you get here?
Martin originally planned a solo career as the Martin Wallace Experience but Jimi Hendrix fans kept turning up so we changed our name to The Boyfriends in the hope that boyfriends fans would turn up instead.

   

Describe your sound:
26ft x 3 furlongs, interspersed with the occasional speckled guinea foul, the faint gurglings of the river fleet and just a hint of avocado.

Joyzine said:
"Renders Morrissey's recent comeback completely obsolete."

Anyone you're looking forward to playing with?
Yes.

Something Special:
We're not really each other's boyfriends, our bass player can't stand Joy Division and our drummer is a beekeeper.

What to expect:
We were originally planning to hire a Lancaster bomber and have it fly over Hackney dropping toilet rolls with 'wipe your bum with the boyfriends' printed on them. But then we heard The Darkness had nicked that idea for
Reading so we¹ll probably just play some songs instead.
