Electro Rock. Hailed as dark, edgy and madly enigmatic, they have been compared to Interpol, The Killers, The Cure and Joy Division. Rapid Fiction started in 2004 when Carl Thompson and Nick Mann pooled their creative talent and has since expanded incrementally like the hole in the ozone layer (except they sound better). Demis Kyriacou was looking for a car and found them. Hugo Bronstein was looking for wild sex and found them. Marc Picazo was probably looking for muffins when he found them. They didn't have a policy on only employing people with good surnames - it just panned out that way.
