Shed Seven formed in 1990, out of the ashes of Brockley Haven (which featured Rick, Paul and Tom), a well respected young local band. The first line up consisted of Rick, Tom, Joe and Alan. They soon gathered a loyal following and after a great show at the national ‘In The City’ unsigned band showcase they were signed to Polydor in 1993.
Before they were signed, Joe left the group, to be replaced by old friend Paul. The band achieved great successes between 1994 and 1999, releasing four albums and 14 Top 40 singles on Polydor before splitting with the record label acrimoniously in late 1999.
This also saw personnel changes with Banks leaving due to ‘musical differences’ and original guitarist Joe, as well as long time session keyboardist, Fraser, permanantly added to the line up.
The line up went through several record companies, but never achieved the same critical success as in their heyday despite their huge fan following, before deciding to split in 2003, citing lack of support from their label at the time, Taste Media.
The group announced in July 2007 they were reuniting for a greatest hits tour later in the year, the new line up re-introducing Banks, but sadly losing Fraser Smith.
The succesful 20+ date tour concluded in late December in Glasgow, and received unexpected critical acclaim from both fans and press alike.
A collection of all the bands singles was released in early 2008 by Polydor, containing much unheard material and extra B-Sides.
The group played a number of gigs in the summer of 2008, including the T in the Park and V Festivals. They once again confounded critics in May by announcing a major UK wide tour for late 2009. They continued to gig throughout 2010 and have one of their biggest ever tours planned for 2011 to coincide with the 15th anniversary of ‘A Maximum High’s release.
