Formed in Cheltenham in 1996, the band went through several line-up as well as name changes before they finally settled on ‘4ft Fingers’. Having mainly played locally for a couple of years, Rob, Tom, Dougie and Dave met manager Darren in late 1999 and things began to improve. The band started to gig relentlessly, playing anywhere they possibly could.

In 2001 the quartet recorded their debut album ‘At Your Convenience’ with Martin Nicholls at Whitehouse Studios, which was released on Jamdown Records. This was followed by a year of non-stop touring (140 gigs in 2001), earning the band the reputation as one of the hardest working UK bands, which brought them to the attention of several record companies. In early 2002 4ft Fingers signed to Golf Records, home to the likes of The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Snuff and many more.

The second album ‘From Hero To Zero’, recorded with Dave Chang at Philia Studios, was released on Golf in September 2002 and supported by an impressive advertising campaign and a full 40-date co-headline UK tour under the title ‘Golfing On The Moon’ (2002).

2003 has seen the band embark on a massive 47-date headline UK tour under the banner ‘From Hero To Zero’ which was followed by tour dates with Dead Kennedy’s and The Damned.

Summer 2003 saw the band writing and pre-viewing new material which was set to see the light of day in May 2004. In the meantime 4ft Fingers have toured Europe in September 2003, after which a third video had been added to Scuzz TV, which was set to coincide with a UK headline tour in October. After this the band were invited to tour with the Voodoo Glow Skulls and Skindred on a 6-week European tour in November/December.

The band’s third full-length, “A Cause For Concern”, was recorded in early 2004 with Pete Brown at Philia Studios and was released to coincide with a UK and European headline tour in April and May. This was followed by the Finger’s first US tour in the summer, coinciding with the American release of their new album on Go-Kart Records. During the last three months of the year, the band will be back gigging in the UK, playing another headline tour in October/November, followed by a number of shows with punk rock legends The Damned.

The band has had four videos on Scuzz TV and P-Rock TV: “Last Man Standing”, “Brickwall”, “Emergency Manoeuvre” and “40 Years Of Misery”. All these made it into the channels’ Top 5.
