The Rifles

Joel Stoker (vocals), Lucas Crowther (guitar), Rob Pyne (bass), and Grant Marsh (drums) create the jaunty garage rock sound of the Rifles. With their Jam-like swagger and matched playfulness to the Kooks, the Rifles came together in London in 2003. They made their performance debut a year later and praise from NME and BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe quickly championed the Rifles' boyish rock & roll fun. Their debut "When I'm Alone" arrived in May 2005 and did moderately well among their growing fan base, however "Local Boy" gave the Rifles their first U.K. Top 40 hit that fall. Other chart hits such as the Strokes-like "Repeat Offender" and "She's Got Standards" added to the band's heightened popularity in 2006. Produced by Ian Broudie (the Coral, the Subways, I Am Kloot), No Love Lost marked the Rifles' debut full-length in July. Additional U.K. club shows and appearances at the annual V Festival in Chelmsford and Staffordshire followed in August. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi

I fell in love with this band when I saw them open for Paul Weller in Philadelphia while he was on his 50th birthday tour. They were great!
Peace & Quiet by The Rifles is story of my life at work...lol XD

best band ever!!!
The Jam were a great band back in the day and The Rifles take that energy and bring it back to life in the 2000's. Unfortunatel y , only parts of Great Escape are OK but it is another case of sophomore blues. Sometimes, Winter Call, Romeo and Julie and The General are all quite catch and tell stories. I now understand that several members have gone their own way and they are regrouping in some fashion.

lol@Kat. Isn't that all country music is? booze, unfaithful women and firearms? They ARE the Rifles...

I can't find a mention of both of those albums on the same bio - beginning to think they're done by different bands. Which would explain why No Love Lost is pretty OK but the Great Escape is so, so bad.
all i want is a lil pizza
i agree kat. gross.

Love it.

Sounds like about a million other college bands. I can do better singing along with the radio. Once again Pandora, thank you for throwing this on my country music station. The Rifles should shoot themselves.
SEX PISTOLAS ARE BETTER
want.
Pretty dece.
I generally don't like cookie-cutte r bands, but these guys are a blend of new sounds, unique guitar riffs and catchy vocals, and the pre-establis h e d genre of 'alternative . '

They do sound like other bands, but as long as they keep bringing some new elements to the table, I will continue to enjoy The Rifles.
What's so great about sounding like 10 other bands??
why aren't they on iTunes?
It's like OK Go, The Futureheads, and Franz Ferdinand all in one thing.
Good thing I like all three bands.
Glory glory Rifles!
