Kubb are a British
indie rockband from London.
Its members are:
*Harry Collier: lead vocals and bass
Dominic Greensmith: drums
*John Tilley: keyboards
The band started to form when Harry met Ben Langmaid via mutual friend
Rollo Armstrong(of Faithlessfame). Rollo and Ben had studios in the same complex. Harry then met a friend of Langmaid's, Jeff Patterson. The threesome began writing together. Langmaid and Patterson however weren’t interested in being in the frontline of a band but Harry had energy and enthusiasm to spare.
Before long however the Kubb line-up was in place: Ex Reef member Dom Greensmith (drums) recruited via an old touring contact of Harry's; John Tilley (keyboards) fresh out Greenwich Conservatoire and recruited via an
NMEad; and Adj (guitar).
Their songs have seen airplay on radio stations and they have headlined several tours in the UK, they have played two gigs at the
Shepherd's Bush Empire, and have made guest appearances on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross(on December 16, 2005, and on the Jonathon Ross Radio Show on February 4, 2006). They also appeared on Jools Holland's show, Popworld, CDUK, the Des and Mel Show, The Friday Night Projectwith Justin Lee Collinsand Alan Carralong with special guest Jamie Oliverand have appeared three times on Top of the Pops. They performed an iTunes Live from London gig at the London Apple Store, they have recorded a 'secret session' for Tiscali and the group appeared at V Festival and the Isle of Wight Festival.
Kubb have recently announced on MySpace that they are busy writing for their second album; also, guitarist Adj Buffone announced that he has left the band. Lead singer Harry Collier features on the 2006
