A is a British alternative rock band. They formed in 1995 in Suffolk, England. The original line up was three brothers, Jason, Adam and Giles Perry, and two friends Mark Chapman, and Steve Swindon. Swindon quit the band in 1997 and was replaced by Daniel P. Carter. This line up continues to this day. After changing their name from 'Grand Designs' and abandoning their early prog-inspired sound for a more punky feel, they released their debut LP How Ace Are Buildings in 1997. Second album A vs. Monkey Kong followed in 1999. A more poppy record than How Ace Are Buildings the band toured the world, played festivals and enjoyed a small degree of success worldwide, especially in Germany. Hi-Fi Serious was their third album, released in 2002. It was preceded by their biggest single to date, Nothing, which saw the band reach the UK top ten for the first time, hitting number 9. The tour following Hi-Fi Serious saw the bands playing their largest venues to date, headlining the 5000 capacity Brixton Academy as part of the Inner-City Sumo Tour. 'A' will be releasing their fourth album on June 27th 2005.


The band currently consists of the following five members:

  • Jason Perry (lead vocals)
  • Mark Chapman (guitar)
