"Magasin Magazine - France"

“I have a new band of the decade. And I don’t believe I’m mistaken in asserting that The Last Army, six months in existence, eight songs, and zero label, has the promise of a beautiful future. One of two things awaits them: glory, or cult status…”. (February 2008)

- Thibaut


“She has this sexy, breathy way of half-talking in some bits. She sounds hot. Especially when she's speaking French...” - Marsha Shandur

"Pluginmusic - US"

“The delightfully British sounding The Last Army vary from punky to poppy while always feeling convincingly dramatic. One moment frontwoman Rebekah Delgado is seducing you in French before a quick 50’s surf instrumental comes crashing in. But regardless of genre, the band paints a lush musical picture that is engaging and inspired. Indie rock that keeps you guessing and doesn’t disappoint.” (March 2008) - Corinne

"Supersweet - UK"

“The Last Army have one foot as firmly planted in The Dark Side as the other is in The Light... Although they are based in London, singer Rebekah’s penchant for foreign lyrics, and a soon-to-be-inked deal with a Spanish label means the band feels as much a European affair as it does British.” (April 2008) - Unknown

"Rockbites - US"

Musical points of reference…The Clash and The Only Ones. Fresh, poignant, sometimes verging on numinous. Here’s hoping they tour America this year…” (January 2008) - Murray Jason

"Indyrock - Spain"

“The rhythmic verses in 'Dead' resemble a gloomily distorted nursery rhyme, and the chanting in the chorus is like some archaic ceremonial ritual. In 'Broken Down in London Town', Rebekah relates a trilingual story, complete with a background accordion that transports us to the cafes of Paris.” - Raül Ruiz

"The Fly Magazine - UK"

”The Last Army's swoonsome pop essence is something that simply demands attention. Not least in singer Rebekah whose striking appearance reciprocates perfectly with her honey-soaked gravel vocals. When she whips out out the French-speak, blokes get hypnotised. 'Every Party...' with male vocals to the fore, is like Boomtown Rats covering Crosby, Stills and Nash's 'Our house' with punk-laced pebbledash. You just can't take your eyes or ears off this for one second. Indeed, The Last Army are a weapon of mass destraction.” The Fly Magazine (UK) Stephan Brolan, August 2008 - Stephen Brolan

"BBC London - UK"

"On first listen to the band, it's all about the post-rock guitars offsetting a voice made for opulent lighting and red velvet curtains. Fans of Broadcast and Clinic will love Rebekah Delgado's hazy, electronic vocals on our London Calling record of the week, Dead. A pure pheromone rush" BBC London (UK) Aug 2008 - Gary Crowley

It all began for The Last Army in the summer of 2007…..

In July and August two best friends Rebekah and Micky recorded some demos – the drums and violins in a studio, the rest in a bedroom. They then recruited some of their friends and formed The Last Army. After a couple of practices, they played their first gig at The Truck Festival, UK in September.

Then, after having their demos discovered on Myspace by an enthusiastic Hispanic DJ, garnered much national radio play in Spain. So they flew over towards the end of the year and got interviewed live on aforementioned national radio (Radio Nacional de España). They followed this by playing a mini-tour, starting with Madrid.

After that particular gig (their second) they were offered a record deal with Spanish indie label Liliput. This pleased them.

Their whirlwind start was all good and well but they took some time out at Christmas (about 3 days).

In January they started getting played on smaller radio stations in the US and caught the interest of an American manager. They were also played on Mexican radio on student station UABC.

In February they became the weekly featured artist on Myspace Australia. And momentum kept growing elsewhere...France, Spain, US ( - big 50 chart, UNU radio, KXLU Playlist for CMJ New World Music Chart). XFM DJ Marsha Shandur stumbled upon them and said to her listeners – ‘They’re really good and therefore should be known about’.

In March they played a packed gig in Punk, Soho and Jimmy Pursey (formerly of Sham 69) joined them onstage - enthusiastically proclaiming “I love this lot!”. They were also approached by an eager video director who could accommodate them with their not-even-a-shoestring budget.

In April they shot said music video for the song ‘Dead’ - with one camera and no crew. They also recorded a cover of Je t’aime (moi non plus) – a duet with Rebekah and Art Brut’s Eddie Argos.

In June they were interviewed live and their first single (self-release, no budget or plugger, digital only) ‘Dead’ was played on Steve Lamacq’s BBC6 show.

In July Tom Robinson and Gideon Coe also played ‘Dead’ on BBC6. Then TLA took some time out to write some new songs.

In August they got their first live UK live review - in The Fly, and it sung their praises. They were reviewed and hailed as ‘best unsigned band’ in London Lite magazine and this was followed by radio play on BBC London as their ‘record of the week’. At the end of the month they were the CMU Daily (insider industry magazine) big tip, described as ‘Utterly brilliant. They have an impressive arsenal of hook-laden indie songs… the best band-fronting team you're likely to find’.

Amidst the rumblings of far greater things that they’re not currently at liberty to divulge, this is how they took their first tentative steps into the world.

And so began their story ….
