Bombay Bicycle Club were all fellow classmates and formed when they were 15 years old, just two years ago. They were named after an Indian restaurant in London, but I am almost sure they kept it because of the initials (BBC).
Their first major break was a rock competition for Road to V. Among the thousands and thousands of bands, they were chosen 2006's Road To V Winners by judges Tim Burgess (The Charlatans), Steve Harris (Virgin Radio DJ), and Mags Ravel (music promoter).
They put out their debut EP called The Boy I Used to Be and went on tour, supporting previous Road to V winners, The Young Knives.
By the way, The Boy I Used to Be is available on CD and the uncommon 10" vinyl (I guess they couldn't fit the four songs on a standard 7").
