Arrogant Wale Bio:
Mat Wale (Guitar/Vocals/Harmonica) Jack Collister (Multi-Instumentalist)
Long time friends and sometime star crossed lovers Mat wale and Jack Collister formed Arrogant Whale in a drunken jam at Stainsby folk festival. After forming they headlined the festival and performed a version of "Wholsale Love" that will secure them a place in musical history forever. There blend of arrogance, country music and experimental ideals where a breath of fresh air in a world of manufactured pop and indie, Arrogant Whale-Mania soon took off and launched the band into mega star status. The Band sensing the impending revolution recorded an EP only known as "The Arrogant Whale EP" and played a run of shows at "The Loft" to rave reviews. Both the gigs and the EP have now become pieces of musical folklore and those lucky enough to have been there have seen it as a high point in there lives. All expected the band to go from strength to strength and have a fruitful career in the music business but the actual outcome was far from this. The band where broke apart by the very thing that brought them together "Arrogance"! The band split and lost contact in a whirl of media speculation. Some say "it was the pressure" and some say "they where just arrogant bastards" but whatever the truth of the matter was the dream was over..............However due to contact between the two parties it has been rumoured that there will be an Arrogant Whale comeback this year at Stainsby folk festival the very place where it all began. Whether this is true isn't certain but one things for sure its been one hell of a trip!!
