The Ordinary Boys have been playing together since they were in their early teens in Worthing. Their first album, Over the Counter Culture, released in August 2004 was a critical and commercial smash reaching number 1 in the Japanese album chart. They followed this up with the anthem Boys Will Be Boys, a prescient critique of mass culture set to a danceable ska beat.
After singer Preston’s appearance on Celebrity Big Brother and a brief flirtation with celebrity culture he retired from show business and now has a successful career as a songwriter producer. However with 4 albums and a 5th on the way the Ordinary Boys are taking a break from their current Hiatus to play some of their signature blistering live shows and release a new record.
