Bio

Signed to Gary Powell (The Libertines/Dirty Pretty Things) new label and frequently championed by self-proclaimed fan, Oasis discoverer, Creation Records founder and all-round musical myth-maker Alan McGee. 18 months from inception, IC1s have shared stages with The Cribs, The Charlatans, Tinie Tempah, Tim Burgess, Badly Drawn Boy, Calvin Harris, Bloc Party, Buzzcocks and many more.. The band were also invited to perform at Tim Burgess's own curated 'Friends Of Mine' festival in Manchester.

In September 2011 the bands debut release 'Levitate' was the #2 most downloaded new entry in the Itunes Alternative Singles Chart in its week of entry, peaking at #24. The release also peaked at #195 in the UK Top 200.

The follow up 'Karma' peaked at #40 in the same charts and was featured on Soccer AM & was Q Magazine's track of the day on release.

Alan Mcgee (Creation Records) - "If you go see a new band go and see IC1s, they're brilliant & are post-everything. They know the time and year unlike most other new bands, this is 2011"

Mark Beaumont (NME, The Times, The Guardian) - " A proper, no messing about rock band!"

Gary Powell (The Libertines) - "After meeting IC1s and seeing obvious confidence exuding from their being it's easy to see that this is not a band of pomp and circumstance; they actually deliver in spades - an approach to live performance that's lacking in today's gig scene. Highly exciting to watch and thought provoking to listen to - but they've also an 'ace' in their deck, being that of lead singer Dan, who's street urchin-esque approach is contagious viewing, a must see for anyone who wants a real rock and roll band with attitude and ability."

Pete Donaldson (XFM) - "They're a little bit Libertines, a little bit Ramones - but they're certainly 100% hundred percent London. Whack Jack must surely serve as a stomping, unifying crowdpleaser live. The punk rock chorus comes out of precisely nowhere and is the sort of thing the word 'tasty' was invented for"

Sarah Champion (Absolute Radio) - "Love the band name and love the track 'Not Perfect'. Indie pop rock with attitude; the main hook is particularly infectious!"
