Turnpike Glow started life in Rome, in a scene marginalised by glossy mainstream pop and insider trading. With their Pavement/ Phoenix inspired sound, they soon found themselves supporting acts likeThe Futureheads, The Constantines and Cooper Temple Clause.

They soon started flying over to do live shows in th UK and it wasn't long before Sandro Schiena and Giuseppe La Mela, the songwriting core of the band, moved to London armed with only their guitars and a bag full of European plug adaptors. One rainy Sunday, the pair bumped into Anthony J. Hutchinson (drums) busking on the tube in a giant sombrero. They talked, they laughed and eventually they joined forces.

Their line-up was recently complete with the addition of Tom P. Griffiths (guitar/BV’s).
