Built to Spill Biography - Woozy Northwest Indie Goes Global
Since forming over 20 years ago, this fantastic five-piece have become one of the most critically-lauded indie bands in the US. Boasting a revolving line-up orbiting around the uber-talented singer/guitarist Doug Martsch, their seven albums to date have seen them burst from their cult roots into a global proposition - and their path to greatness is as inspiring as their hallowed music. The project was geared up by Martsch in 1992, with debut album Ultimate Alternative Wavers coming out a year later to mass critical acclaim. They later went on to align themselves with other acclaimed acts such as Modest Mouse, earning themselves a celebrity fan in The Smiths' Johnny Marr in the process. Meanwhile, their live shows have become the stuff of legend thanks to their love of cover versions, which have incorporated versions of songs by everyone from New Order and The Strokes to Macy Gray and Elton John.
