Personalities | Biffy Clyro | Twenty-First Century | Rock

(Vocal/instrumental group, 1995–present)

Belligerent Scottish rock trio Biffy Clyro – Simon Neil (vocals and guitar), James Johnston (bass) and his twin brother Ben (drums) – issued breakthrough album Puzzle, which reached No. 2 in the UK, in 2007 after their first three LPs failed to reach the Top 40. Follow-up Only Revolutions (2009) also hit the Top 10, ensuring their guitar-laden alt-rock permeated the airwaves and proving, after five years in the wilderness, that success does sometimes come to those who wait.
