London, England, GBR

Alt-J met at Leeds University whilst studying fine art and have spent the last two years studying and rehearsing in the basement of a small terraced house, in a rather run-down part of Leeds.

Until recently they were called 'Films', but to save confusion with an American band of the same name, they changed to Alt-j.

Why Alt-J ? The bands logo is a triangle. When you hold down the alt key on a mac keyboard and simultaneously press the J key, hey presto, a triangle is displayed !
