Band Info

Since forming just over a year ago, Black # 5 have had a rapid ascent and are now recognised as one of the best new rock bands in the country. Based in Lincolnshire , the band’s name came about when bassist Dale Jeffrey decided to visit a casino. “I was really skint” he explains, “ I owed money to loads of dodgy people so decided to go for broke. I went to the roulette table and put all I had on one number. Black. Number five. It won and I ended up leaving that night with £8,000. It’s paid off all my debts and bought the band new equipment, so it seemed like it might be a lucky name…..”

The band are signed to Headroom Records and release their debut album ‘Last Few Hours’ on 25th October 2004 . The album was recorded at The Radar Rooms between April and June, and has been produced by Pat Grogan who has also worked with Terrorvision, The Verve, Chumbawamba and Paradise Lost among many others. Headroom MD Stephen Newman is ecstatic with the results. ”I thought they’d make a brilliant album,” he states:“But this has surpassed all expectations.”
