The big-haired, black-clad quintet -- which features singer FarisBadwan, bassistTomethy Furse, guitarist Joshua Von Grimm, drummer Coffin Joe, and keyboardist Spider Webb -- formed in thesummer of 2005 andquickly gained notoriety around London for their look, sound, and brief but frantic live shows. Loog soonsigned them, and the Horrorsreleased their official debut single, Sheena Is a Parasite/Jack the Ripper, in spring 2006. The buzzaround the band reached a peak thatsummer, with the Horrors DJing at the Troubled Minds club night, having to reschedule in-store appearances because of crowd concerns andreleasing their second single, Death at the Chapel. They also reissuedSheena Is a Parasite as a limited-edition DVD single. The song'sstartling video was directed by Chris Cunningham and featuredactress Samantha Morton as Sheena. Late that summer, the band signed toStolen Transmission in the U.S. and released a self-titled EP that fall. They also issued the Count in Fives single in the U.K. around thattime. « hide
