Personalities | The Kooks | Twenty-First Century | Rock

(Vocal/instrumental group, 2004–present)

Brighton’s Kooks – Luke Pritchard (vocals), Hugh Harris (guitar), Max Rafferty (bass) and Paul Garred (drums) – are the next in a long line of British acts that can be traced as far back as The Kinks, taking in the likes of Supergrass, Blur and even The Coral on their list of influences. Formed and signed by Virgin on the same night at a gig at a pub in their hometown, they had released two best-selling albums by 2010.
