Slaves: blast from punk's past
Taking inspiration from iconic bands such as the Sex Pistols and The Clash, musicians Laurie Vincent and Isaac Homan came together in 2012 in Maidstone, Kent with just a guitar and a set of drums, ready to shake up industry norms and create music reminiscent of the great punk groups of the 1970s. Incorporating comedic elements into their music, songs such as "Where's Your Car Debbie" caught the attention of radio stations and music producers alike, with the boys eventually signing to Virgin/EMI in 2015.
Championed by the likes of DJ Zane Lowe and with TV appearances including on Later with Jools Holland, the band found immediate success on their first headline tour of the UK; with the rebellious pair being described as gritty, cheeky and the ones to give punk back its edge. The duo released their debut album Are You Satisfied? to critical acclaim in 2015, as it peaked at number eight in its first week on the UK Albums Chart and was nominated for the 2015 Mercury Music Prize. Second album Take Control followed a year later, and featured a collaboration with Mike D of the Beastie Boys on the track "Consume or Be Consumed". The album fared even better in the charts than their debut, reaching number six in its first week on the UK Albums Chart.
