Salinger's Seymour: An Introduction, which Albarn was reading at the time. Known in the Colchester underground scene as an art rock band, the band quickly gained underground popularity with their live shows. Read more on Last.fm

In spring 1989, vocalist Damon Albarn, guitarist Graham Coxon and drummer Dave Rowntree, classmates at London's Goldsmiths College, formed Seymour, a name taken from J.D. Salinger's Seymour: An Introduction, which Albarn was reading at the time. Known in the Colchester underground scene as an art rock band, the band quickly gained underground popularity with their live shows. In summer 1989, Seymour, with the new addition of bassist Alex James, sent a demo containing early versions of songs such as "She's So High" and "Dizzy" to indie label Food Records' A&R man Andy Ross.

However, it wasn't until Ross attended Seymour's live performances that he was suitably impressed and decided to sign them. The only concern held by Ross and the record label was that they disliked the band's name. Food drew up a list of alternative names, from which the band decided on "Blur". Food Records finally signed the newly-christened Blur in March 1990. #2: A band from Sweden consisting of Johanna Rosenblad, Therese Andersson, Sandy Holmberg, Petter Mattson, and Kristian Methven. The year was 2004 and Johanna and Therese had become good friends in school.

They were both very interested in music and played together as often as they could. Together with a boy from their class; Sebastian, they started a band in the spring of 2005. The first real gig came in the autumn of 2005. The first demo record was recorder the same winter and was called "Songs for you".

The spring of 2006 was full of gigs and the band got a new member; Mattis. That same summer the original members graduated from school and took a short break in the rehearsing and playing. In the autumn Mattis left the band but they continued as before. In the winter their second demo record "Seymour" was recorded. After that Sebastian wanted to try other things than playing music so he left the band and was replaced by Sandy.

The spring of 2007 the band had some gigs in their hometown and in April they started recording their third demo record "Seymour Goes 5". That title was chosen because under the recording two new members joined the band; Petter and Kristian. They were both new friends of Johanna who met them in her new school. The band also started to record a self-made music video with help from Jens Friberg. #3: A punk rock / grunge band based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and formed in 2005.

Members include John Forbes (guitar, vocals, bass), Ross Millar (bass, guitar), Curtis Tone (drums), and Jason Macfarlane (percussion, horns, samples). John Forbes records solo as Riding Life Down. Curtis Tone has been a member of other bands, such as The Lava and Ash and The Juniper Bends, and has recorded with Purge. Website: MySpace Read more on Last.fm.
