Razorlight DJ Set

Johnny Borrell (Vox, Guitar) Björn Ågren (Guitar) Carl Dalemo (Bass) Andy Burrows (Drums)

Monday 28th June 2004 began a week where a band called Razorlight's debut album 'Up All Night' entered the UK album chart at No. 1 and seven days later 'Up All Night' was No. 3 in the official UK chart.

That same week, Razorlight took on three British institutions in a row, starting with a remarkable performance on Top Of The Pops, going on to play in front of Buckingham Palace and a TV audience of millions at the Olympic Torch Parade in London and then before they even had time to bow to the Queen, being rushed across country to the most quintessential of festivals: Glastonbury. Though bottom of the bill in the Sunday morning slot, Razorlight were on a roll that they still haven't come down from.

The intervening twelve months witnessed Razorlight accepting awards and nominations from Q Magazine, the NME, The South Bank Show and Nordorf Robbins to name a few. They returned to singer Johnny Borrell's backyard, literally, with two sold -out shows at London's Alexandra Palace and played a UK tour to 40,000 people. Razorlight's last single 'Somewhere Else' reached No. 2 in the UK charts (held from the number 1 slot only by a charity record).

With the release in 2006 of their chart-topping eponymously named follow-up album Johnny, Andy, Björn and Carl have moved the band to the next level achieving four times platinum status two sold out arena tours, headline festival dates and their first UK No. 1 single the worldwide hit 'America'.
