iLIKETRAiNS

iLiKETRAiNS are a post rock band which formed in Leeds, England in 2003. Their songs are composed of expansive orchestral and guitar-based sounds. They consist of David Martin (vocals, guitar), Guy Bannister (guitar, keyboards, vocals), Alistair Bowis (bass, vocals) and Simon Fogal (drums). They work on concept albums which are also optically represented on stage, by means of video projections and the band’s actual image (the mournings on their arms for example).

The debut single came in July 2005 - BEFORETHECURTAiNSCLOSE - a song in 2 parts, was released on Dance To The Radio. STAiNLESS STEEL had previously been contributed to DTTR’s debut compilation of Leeds bands

Later in the year came A Rook House For Bobby, backed with THE BEECHiNG REPORT released on theKids label. This releae featured members of Shady Bard on additional orchestration and numerous Leeds music alumni in a choir (This Et Al, Napoleon IIIrd, Vatican Jet, Yellow Stripe Nine and more)

Mini album, Progress Reform followed on the Fierce Panda label in 2006, preceded by the Terra Novasingle. This brought together most of the previously released material as well as some newly recorded songs.

In early 2007, the band signed with Beggars Banquet and released a single Spencer Perceval (an obituary of sorts to the only assasinated Prime Minister of Britain)
