Louie feature two nineteen year old singers called Jordan Smith and Gaz Tomlinson from Cumbria and York respectively plus lead guitarist Russell Ditchfield and rhythm guitarist Luke Morris. Their intensely cool line-up is completed by Andy Twigden on bass and Mikey Parrish on drums. Formed in 2004 and now based in London after meeting and recently dropping out of college, Louie have already caused a huge fuss in the British music scene and been likened to the New York Dolls by Kerrang, the Libertines by the NME, and the Heartbreakers (Johnny's, not Tom's, presumably) by the pair of them. Half the battle, of course - apart from the songs - is the obvious chemistry created when co-singers Jordan and Gaz collide on stage or collude in a studio. It's been said before that they possess the cuteness of the Olsen twin sisters (thank you NME) and couple this with a brassy whirlwind of seminal bedroom poses and We Don't Give A Fuck mentality and you can see what all the fuss is about.
