The Subways In-depth Biography

The Subways are a high-spirited alternative rock outfit featuring Billy Lunn (guitar/vocals), Charlotte Cooper (bass/vocals), and Josh Morgan (drums). The British band formed in Welwyn Garden City in 2002, while the three musicians were only in their early teens. Despite their young age, brothers Morgan and Lunn (the latter of whom took his mother's maiden name as his rock & roll moniker) were longtime music fans, having raided their parent's record collection as kids. Growing up on AC/DC, the Carpenters, T. Rex, the Beatles, and the Ramones helped instill a love for noise and melody in the siblings, while an Oasis performance on Top of the Pops convinced Lunn to begin mastering his father's old acoustic guitar.

Around this time, Lunn met kindred music fan (and future love interest) Charlotte Cooper. Both shared a fondness for Nirvana, the Pixies, the Jam, Mudhoney, and the Sex Pistols -- thus, Cooper started to learn bass in order to play alongside Lunn, while big brother Morgan took up the drums. The trio soon delivered an energetic, punk-inspired sound, which they captured on a series of homemade recordings. The Subways then used those recordings to secure shows in London, and in 2004, the bandmates cemented their on-the-rise status by winning the Glastonbury Festival Unsigned Performers Competition.

Prior to the year's end, the Subways began working with producer Ian Broudie (Echo & the Bunnymen, the Coral) for the recording of their debut album. Packed with four Top 40 British singles, Young for Eternity was released in the U.K. in June 2005. An appearance on Fox's popular sitcom The O.C. (as well as a spot on the show's soundtrack) followed that fall, and Young for Eternity received an American release in February 2006. The album's most popular track, "Rock & Roll Queen," went gold in the U.S., and the group decamped to California to record its follow-up effort. Partially inspired by Lunn's breakup with Cooper, 2008's All or Nothing introduced a harder sound courtesy of veteran producer Butch Vig. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi
