Flatt Tin Roof
Flatt Tin Roof Bio:

After a chance meeting during the early years, J and Adie met C.C Smith. It was during the days of snap and vanilla ice, they decided to make a stand against 90s music! Picking up intrsuments during high school, practicing in a dark bedroom in a Rothwell villa, raised on a combination of Therapy? Pink floyd, MC Hammer and Rage against the machine they made their stand, with a lil help from J's cousin Daz filling in on bass

However, then disaster took hold, and the band collapsed. Outside influences tore the band apart and the world believed it had lost one of its most promising talents.. But then...

2005 Arrived. More than 5 years after putting down their instruments, in a chance meeting in the sort of concert pit you'd expect the law to ban J, Adie and C.C decided to put the band back together. A one off wedding gig ensued under the name "Hot Tin Roof" where J's beloved wife and talented singer Louise appeared on vocals and Adie swapped his guitar for Bass. With a new found hunger for music, J, Adie and C.C formed the now Flatt Tin Roof and once more made their stand. Musically more mature,professional and aware than their humble beginnings.



Can the band wagon's engine last to the end of the road? Or will they collapse once more under explosive circumstances? It'll be one hell of a ride, so stay tuned to this website and future gigs to find out.

And hey, dont miss out on where it all began! It wasn't FTR's best gig to date, but hey, it was the first, so for a return to the roots, a future collectors item and a look at how it all began

The guys currently are around the web, mainly at the myspace account - www.myspace.com/flatttinroof
But they can be found on google. Just dont forget the Three T's!


Flatt Tin Roof have put together one demo so far, with another due soon. These boys have enjoyed rocking up some venues around the West Yorkshire area including the Primrose, Atrium, Cardigan Arms, Adelphi and Mixing Tin, recieving a rapturous welcome from the crowds.

But will they up and chase after the world Or stay true to their Yorkshire roots? Who knows. But One thing's for sure, Flatt Tin Roof are back, and better than ever!

Its Serious Passion! In a Musical Fashion!

Interesting new one regarding Dame Judy Dench. Inspired by a few too many James Bond movies perhaps, the Roofsters reel off a sound similar to more recent Supergrass, with a mixture of an early Rolling Stones meets The Beach Boys.

As so often has been the case in musical history, the inspiration comes from a beautiful girl, and a BIG argument!
We've seen linkin park talk of the end, eric clapton talk of layla, now the Roofsters talk about their experience.

Check it out! Expect it out in itunes soon!
