When you look at the influences of a band you can start to pinpoint and build up an idea of what sort of style or sound the band will have. Looking at what music has influenced The Counterfeits, it is very difficult to tie them down to a particular genre or set of influences.

When you look at the influences of a band you can start to pinpoint and build up an idea of what sort of style or sound the band will have. Looking at what music has influenced The Counterfeits, it is very difficult to tie them down to a particular genre or set of influences. Folk and blues artists such as Leadbelly, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Woody Guthrie and Hank Williams mixed with the rock bands like The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin, punk acts like The Germs and The Stooges and more recent acts like Nirvana and Queens Of The Stone Age have all helped to shape the bands music. Since forming in January 2006 the band have worked on developing each idea, each composition slowly, building it, arranging and rearranging it, assessing, experimenting, delaying, and changing with each gig a platform to test their unique sound. In the band's relatively short existence, they have played gigs around the country, including a full UK tour, building up a large and devoted fan base along the way. They have supported a host of national touring acts (See list above left) and received local BBC and student radio airplay in numerous regions.

They have also been featured in national magazines, including an interview in The Big Issue. In late September the band agreed a singles deal with Indie label Organic Records with the first release slated for January 2007. ‘No Alternative,’ was recorded at Moles Studio, Bath with producer Paul Corkett (Placebo, David Bowie, The Cure, Babyshambles, Radiohead). With the release set for the New Year, the band will again be touring starting in December with some 30 dates confirmed and more to be announced. Read more on Last.fm.
