Biography

Maybe it was the long tour with audiences won over by the live shows that saw people dancing and stage diving in equal measures. Or perhaps it was the sold out headlining show at Koko in Camden, London. But when Hedi Slimane asks you to write the soundtrack to what could possibly be his last show for Dior Homme – and then to play at his birthday party – you know you’ve got to be something special.

Enter Littl’ans: that is, charismatic frontman Andrew Aveling [formerly of Add N to (X) and The White Sport], bassist Ryan Blagrove, Ben Hutchinson [drums], tambourine-player Ronnie Joice, and lead guitarist Alex Mahood. With their skiffle-rock sound growing out of the London music scene and informed by influences “too erratic” to mention, Littl’ans have won admiration from everyone from Mick Jagger to Elton John to Karl Lagerfeld.

Littl’ans supported Babyshambles on a chaotic UK tour in the autumn of 2005 [a tour that saw cancelled shows, double bookings, and unnecessary police raids on the tour buses] and recorded a single with Pete Doherty, ‘Their Way’, released October 2005, that climbed to number two in the UK indie charts. They are currently in the final stages of mixing their forthcoming album with respected producer Robert Harder.
