Harrisons Biography (Wikipedia)
Harrisons were a four-piece guitar band from Hillsborough in Sheffield, England. They were one of the leading bands in the so-called New Yorkshire scene, along with fellow Sheffielders Arctic Monkeys, Milburn, The Long Blondes and Bromheads Jacket. Harrisons were: Jubby Taylor (vocals and guitar), Ben Stanton (guitar), Ashley Birch (bass), and Mark White (drums).
In 2005, they recorded a live session for Phill Jupitus' show on BBC 6Music, and played the South By Southwest festival in Texas. They have also featured many times in NME, including a feature where the band guided a journalist around their favourite Sheffield haunts, including Sheffield Wednesday Football Club.
The band signed a deal with Melodic Records in 2006, and released their debut album No Fighting in the War Room in January 2008.
The video to the band's "Blue Note" single was based on the film Kes, and starred Phoenix Nights star Steve Edge as a Brian Glover-style PE teacher.
Harrisons split one week before the album was released.
