Shepton Mallet

When did you form?

November 2004

How did you get together?

The band formed as a three-piece with Josh playing bass and keys, Louis on guitars and Liam drums in November 2004.

Pinstripe played their first show in April 2005 at Whitstone school, Shepton Mallet.

In May 2006, the band became a four-piece when bassist Charlie Brixey joined, with Josh switching to keys, guitars and vocals.

All four band members met at school and live in the Shepton Mallet area.

How would you describe your music?

We play alternative rock songs.

Who are your musical influences?

We listen to a wide range of music but our main influences are Coldplay, Muse, Snow Patrol, U2 and The Beatles.

What is your most memorable gig so far?

Liam from Pinstripe (Mark Carver)

Our most memorable gig would have be the Battle of the Bands show at Tor Leisure, Glastonbury for a place at the Glastonbury Festival.

It was one of the best performances we have done, where everything just went well.

Where would you most like to play?

The same place as everyone... Glastonbury Festival 2007.

Finally, tell us some interesting facts about yourself

In February 2006, the band released their self-produced Critic Killer CD single which features their self-penned songs Critic Killer, The Only One and This Feeling Inside. To read a review of the CD, click on the link on the right of this page.

Pinstripe have played shows throughout the south of the UK including Bristol Carling Academy, Moles in Bath, Storm in London and The Embassy Club in London.

Pinstripe have also played at music festivals in the south west, and made an appearance on Channel 4's music show Transmission.

In August 2006, bass player Charlie Brixey joined Pinstripe, with Josh Thorner switching to keyboards and vocals.

Charlie from Pinstripe (Mark Carver)

In January 2007, Pinstripe won a slot at the Glastonbury Festival after winning a Battle of the Bands competition held in Glastonbury for unsigned bands based in the south west. For more information, click on the link on the right of this page.

March 2007 saw Pinstripe sign a recording contract with South West Recordings, headed by Dennis Smith and Rick Rogers.

Dennis Smith owned Taste Media which was the record label that first signed Muse. Rick Rogers ran the Two Tone record label and managed bands such as The Damned, The Soup Dragons and The Specials.

Pinstripe have recorded their first single Did I Say with producers Fraser Smith and Tom Joyce at the Sawmills recording studio in Cornwall.

Muse, Supergrass, Oasis and Robert Plant have all recorded albums at Sawmills, which is located in Fowey and is only accessible by boat.

Did I Say will be released on 2 July 2007, the week after the Glastonbury Festival. The CD will include the support tracks Innocent and Memory.

The band also has a MySpace page - the link can be found at the top of this page.

crictic killa
tony get real. it is original. music is about expressing urself - see if u can do better

not saying
louis is sooooo fit i luv him xxxxxxxxx

Hey Tony, so who do pinstripe sound like?? Please give us some idea of who you think makes oiginal stuff?? These guys are 15 years old, i think the best is yet to come from these kids. I can see why these guys are the most talked about band on this website, they play to their strengths and understand the meaning of music and deliver it very well. Give them another 2-3 years and i think they will be selling so many albums they won't care too much about what we think!!! It would be good to have a band from Somerset make an impact on the music scene, it might open the doors for some of the other talented bands from this region. Come on lets give all these bands some encouragement. Antony

big up to the "maltings crewege" dann and lou

u people are really confused about the meaning of music. pinstripe are lack luster, heard it all before. I want to hear some original stuff, thank you.

Lydia and Anthony
We are proud of you! Pete wants to know when the next battle of the Bands is on. see you there! All the Best, The "Maltings Crew"

gaz w
Who ever Jake is and annoyed fan! You aint got a clue. Pinstripe are quality band and WILL go along way. PINSTRIPE ROCK!

Matty k
They were by far the best. its not there fault they have so many friends and i think that they were the best an all the rest done well.And they are a realy good they deserved to win and party at hollies house

I think you guys are reaaly good you deserved to win! Keep Rocking! x x x x

critic killa
pinstripe were definatly da best band there once under were probably da 2nd best and pinstripe Are more talented than them its a shame they were only aloud to play 4 songs. peace see ya again at kudos stop the criticism

a truly proud fan! Lara! x x x x
i do not understand why ppl r bein mean such as "an annoyed fan" these guys r brill! Since when did they not write their songs! i think you should appreciate a brilliant band when you hear one as did every1 who voted for them off their own backs! THEY HAVE FANS BECAUSE THEY ARE TALENTED! who are you ppl to put them down like this!? well done u guys im very proud of you! keep goin not matter what ppl say! love you all, lara x x x x x x

what do you know?!!!!!
excuse me "AN ANNOYED FAN". THESE GUYS R TRULY BRILLIANT AND DO WRITE THEIR OWN SONGS!!!!!! i love you guys! feeling like a proud mum! love u! x x x x x x x

The Battle of the Bands comp was organised for the benefit of local bands, the opportunity to showcase their music and play to a captive audience, its not about making enemies. If Pinstripe don't write their music then who does? Father Xmas?????? "Dave" There are plenty of metal and punk bands why do Pinstripe have to play this genre of music? Perhaps the reason they won the "BATTLE OF THE FANS" is because they offer something different. Jake its OK that you don't like Pinstripe, nobody is forcing you to listen to their music or watch them live. All the bands played great sets and i thought FROM THE DEEP did exceptionally well! Shawn(its my real name btw)

Jimmy Luv
how come they had all those fans there in the first place! because they earnt them through their talent and they write original songs.

Charlie B
jake you don't even know pinstripe - its not there fault that they were better than the other bands.

pinstripes won battle of the bands amazin!!!! see u at the final 22nd oct kudos wells x x x

candy pants xxx

I saw you at the BOTB on fri. To be honest you were no way the best there. I can see why people have been calling this competition BATTLE OF THE FANS. It had nothing to do with talent, obviously. Your songs drag on and on and have no life to them. Get a new front man cos yours is cheeeeesy

Jess!!Emma H's mate)
Hey!Well dun lst nite!U guys wer by far da best there!Ur wkd!N it does kinda help that ur all gert lush!hehe! x

I have the honour of having the boys I my year they are all cool and I've heard hem at one of the school functions, they are well wicked! It's a shame I don't have their Cd, coz I'd listen to it all the time! Good luck at the battle of the bands boys!
