Alfie Biography (Wikipedia)
Alfie were an English indie rock band, formed in 1998 in Manchester. The band were composed of singer Lee Gorton, guitarist-vocalist Ian Smith, drummer Sean Kelly, bassist Sam Morris and cellist-guitarist Matt McGeever.
Gorton admitted that the name Alfie "was just plucked out of the air", but with it being one of the first bands alphabetically had helped them as , for example, when the band "played All Tomorrow's Parties, it looked like we were headlining".
The band released four studio albums before disbanding in 2005.
