The LaFontaines started off in the humble surroundings of their home town, Motherwell, yet within just a few years they have gone from strength to strength, climbing the ranks and being selected to play on the BBC Introducing stage at T in the Park- where they set the record for the biggest crowd. Their original hip-hop-rock-electro mash up (which was once ridiculed) has led them to become one of the most inventive bands of the past few years.
I have seen The LaFontaines play twice now and their live performances are hugely energetic. Frontman Kerr's attitude towards the crowd carries a positive vibe through everyone, which leads to a tireless effort from all involved. You can listen to a few of their songs on the bands Myspace:
However, the band have expressed that a debut album is almost complete, and throughout 2011, and now 2012, they have/will release 6 songs which will then be followed by the full album.
