Charlie, the band guitarist and main songwriter, used to work in a number factory. He was responsible for thinking up new numbers between six and seven, but eventually he came to feel that his best work in this area was behind him. Denied a promotion to the numbers-between-nine-and-ten product line, he resigned and spent some time in bed drinking tea and wondering what to do next.
Eventually he realised that over-exposure to daytime TV would almost certainly lead to an early death, so he got up and decided to form a rock band instead. He met the other three members when they all attended the same shaving-safely-while-bungee-jumping workshop, and now they all work together to make intense, beautiful rock music.
