The Victorian English Gentlemens Club Information

The Victorian English Gentlemens Club is not Victorian, English or a Gentleman, but it is formed of three people who are in fact English. (But still not Victorian, gentle or even men.) All three aimed to be in a band, so took the logical step of leaving their respective homelands (Birmingham, Shrewsbury and North Yorkshire) and going to art school.

The band's RSI inducing name was coined by Adam's then painting teacher, who thought he had nurtured a new art movement thanks to his classes untypical and somewhat traditionalist taste for painting still life. Thus, The Victorian English Gentlemens Club was born. They made their recording debut in early 2006; with the limited-edition "The Tales of Hermit Mark"/"My Son Spell Backwards" released in the spring and double A-side "Amateur Man"/"Ban the Gin" following that summer.

Their debut self titled album, released in 2007 was recorded in Fortress Studios, London with Gareth Parton (The Go! Team, Pete And The Pirates) to critical acclaim and the band appeared on the front cover of Artrocker Magazine.
