The first day all six of us met was on the first day of high school in 2005. Although you could hardly call any of us friends, we were just a bunch of lads all involved in different things. But one thing we were all interested in was music. So, inevitably in 2010 we combined our musical talent to become 'The Lost'. It was the efforts of our music teacher Kirsten Shearon, which brought us together. It was also her who advised us on Get Noticed 2010. Get Noticed is a battle of the bands competition, which the first prize being a coveted slot supporting the headline act at Thunder In The Glens, the largest Harley Davidson festival in Europe. To say we practised a lot would be an understatement. We practised and practised until we know the four songs for the competition backwards. Nerves were high when we arrived at the event. We were on last and had to watch all the other bands play. Some were OK, others were amazing. When the time finally came for us to take to the stage we thought we weren’t going to win, we were just gonna go out there and have as much fun as possible. It was an amazing experience and we came together as a band in a way we never had before. Suddenly people were screaming and dancing and it felt great. When we finished we left the stage on a high, we left knowing we had given it our all. When the announcer walked on stage with the head of the Dunedin Chapter of the Harley Davidson rider's organisation, the same chapter that organises Thunder In The Glens, we were more excited than we had ever been before. When he called out 'The Lost' it was truly the first moment we became a band, from that moment on. Everything changed.

Following the Get Noticed competition we started practising like mad again. Learning covers by the likes of Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix and Deep Purple among others. We also wrote our first original track for the event and were well prepared by the time Thunder In The Glens rolled around. We played the number one biker bar in the highlands 'Papa Rocks' on the Friday and Saturday of the weekend and managed to draw in a big crowd even though the weather was appalling. Finally when the Sunday came it was time to hit the stage and play in front of 3,000 people. As the music kicked in the nerves died off and we really got into the performance. The applause was deafening but it made your heart pound. Over the months since Thunder we worked hard to improve musically and have a tighter sound. We almost always had a gig on the bill playing places like the Ben-Mhor in Grantown On Spey, MacKenzie's and Papa Rocks in Aviemore and the Market bar, Hootenany's and Eden Court in Inverness. We also supported the UK's number one AC/DC tribute act 'Hells Bells' in November 2010.
