The Early Years are an English psychedelic, electronic, guitar-based rock band from Hackney, London consisting of members David Malkinson (Vox/Guitars), Roger Mackin (Guitars), Phil Raines (Drums) and Brendan Kersey (Bass).

Biography

The band formed in 2004 through a mutual love of the pioneering German groups that began emerging in the late 60's. Bands like Can, Neu! and Harmonia who pursued a heady mix of experimentation, noise, free-jazz, pyschedelia and electronic instrumentation in their music alongside melody and song that laid the foundations for a 'scene' that subsequently became known as Krautrock. Other shared influences are broad but all encompass elements of noise, repetition, sonics and song; now key elements in The Early Years sound.

Since signing to Beggars Banquet Records in 2006 The Early Years have released three E.P's and their self-titled debut album all to widespread critical acclaim. The band have embarked on numerous UK tours, won fans in Brian Eno and Can vocalist Damo Suzuki (who invited them to perform as his backing band for a one-off improvised show at Sonic Cathedral in Dec 2006) and 2007 has so far seen them visit Europe and the States with various performances in New York and the South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. The Early Years have established themselves as a revered live act.
