This London-based Alternative-Rock act had its roots in Wrentham, Suffolk ENGLAND, where, in the early '90s, identical twins Jason and Adam Perry along with brother Giles decided to form a band; initially called Grand Design, they changed their name to A, simply to be the first entry in any printed music book; in 1996 the band were signed to London Records, at that time, A comprised Jason Perry on vocals, Mark Chapman on guitar, Giles Perry on keyboards, Daniel P. Carter on bass and Adam Perry on drums.
A year later they released their debut album, "How Ace Are Buildings".
In September 2000 the band issued the second full-length disc titled "A Vs. Monkey Kong".
With their third album, "Hi-Fi Serious", A finally broke into the mainstream, the record rose to #18 on the Official U.K. Albums chart spawning the #9 single "Nothing" and the top 20 hit "Starbucks"; the album's success opened doors for the group, not only did they land ever larger gigs across Europe, America and Japan, they also peppered the world's festival stages, returning to their native England with a quarter of a million records sold worldwide.
In July 2005 the quintet released their fourth album, "Teen Dance Ordinance", the set includes the single "Better Off With Him".
