Crest (band)

Crest (band)

Crest were a noise pop band operating from Norwich in the United Kingdom in the late nineties. They consisted of core members Matt Leuw vocals/guitar, Ben Whittaker bass, James Leuw keyboard and Tim Early drums, later replaced by Dan Pritchard drums, but were often augmented by a variety of different musicians.

Formed from the ashes of Mahogany, they released several singles through the Norwich based Noisebox Records label and one single for Love Train records, frequently garnering positive press in the NME and Melody Maker, and several radio plays, mostly from John Peel and Steve Lamacq.

The band split up in 1999, reformed in Brighton with a different line-up including Bob Brown (now of Shrag) and Nick Hills (now of Coin-op), but after several false starts called it a day in 2001. Most of the original line-up reformed in 2006 for a one-off show with fellow former Noisebox Records artists Navigator. Matt Leuw joined Coin-op in 2001 but left them in 2003 and formed Cortez at the end of the same year, and in 2007 formed both The Matthew Project and 2 Hot 2 Sweat.
