SCOUTING FOR GIRLS

SCOUTING FOR GIRLS SUPPORTS MCBUSTED 6 JULY


Over the course of three sparkling, life-affirming, Top 10 albums Scouting For Girls have made the journey from playing pubs in Harrow and Ruislip to headlining Wembley Arena. This, then, is the tale of three friends who followed their dream, seduced a nation and sold two million records along the way.

Roy met future SFG drummer Peter Ellard at cubs (“Roy was my sixer. He told me what to do then and he’s been telling me what to do for 20-odd years”). The pair stayed friends, but Scouting For Girls were really born on a cold February evening in 1995, when Suede came to the Watford Coliseum. Roy and his school friend Greg Churchouse went together. For both it was their first gig.

“We were sat cross-legged at the back having a cheeky under-age beer,” remembers Greg, now, of course, SFG bassist. “This magical, mystical experience blew our minds.”

“That night we knew we’d form a band,” states Roy. “We couldn’t play instruments, but we both thought ‘we’ll do this or we’ll die trying’. Obviously we didn’t know it would take us over 10 years of trying…”.

Now with a support slot at Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park on what's sure to be one of the funnest days of our summer, Scouting For Girls are ready for a big 2014.
