The Strokes Background
The Strokes are a New York City band, born and bred. Its roots go back to Dwight School
in Manhattan, where Julian Casablancas, Nick Valensi, and Fab Moretti started jamming together in their free time. The band's
numbers swelled when Nikolai Fraiture and Albert Hammond, Jr. joined the group. The band started playing at music venues all
across New York, including the famous Mercury Lounge and the Luna Lounge. After hearing the incredible talent and catchy songs
of The Strokes, the Mercury Lounge's talent booker, Ryan Gentles, quit his job and signed on to be the band's manager.
a manager at their side, the band started to write and record more songs for their first EP, The Modern Age (2001). This EP
included hit songs like "Last Nite", "The Modern Age", and "Someday". Because of the incredibly catchy indie tunes on the
EP, record labels flocked to The Strokes, and a bidding war ensued over which would be the label to sign the up and coming
