Foals are a five-piece band from Oxford, UK. Frontman Yannis Philippakis and drummer Jack Bevan played in bands together since the age of 15 and have described their first band The Edmund Fitzgerald as “heavy”, “technical” and “mostly instrumental”. Yannis and Edwin Congreave (keyboard) were studying at Oxford University but dropped out in order to pursue their music and were joined by Walter Gervers (bass) and Jack who both also dropped out of university. The only member of Foals to finish his degree was guitarist Jimmy Smith (guitar, synths)who studied Geography at the University of Hull. The quintet started out by arranging gigs at house parties through MySpace and leaving houses ruined in their wake.
