    a pub and it snowballed Word of mouth travelled fast by 18 I was starting to take it really seriously that I could make a living from doing this I d be playing all my own stuff songs like What Took You So Long and Cavorting which ended up on the first record The son of teachers Liam wrote both songs while working in Manchester s Fred Perry clothes shop The shop was up a side street it had a dead friendly atmosphere everyone got on really well I d be writing songs in there all day listening to The Smiths The Strokes Motown and jotting down lyrics when they came to me I wrote the words to Cavorting on the back of a Fred Perry compliment slip and I d be listening to the records and it would be like I love that drum beat I ll nick that and I d jot down the timing of it and go home and try the part out on a drum kit I d bought for 60 It was at that point he decided to form a band And he looked to his pals for help First he got in Michael Campbell the drummer then came Conan Moores on guitar and Mark Cuppello on bass and as The Courteeners they played their first gig at Manchester s Roadhouse in October 2006 Things moved pretty quickly says Liam An early gig at the Night And Day café in Manchester was pivotal We were down to support Blood Red Shoes that night but they pulled out and we were left as the headliners Everyone had been told the gig had been cancelled as the headliners had pulled out so we were feeling kind of downhearted When we turned up at the venue at to play there were 100 people outside waiting in a line who couldn t get in because it was sold out We were like what you re here to see us We couldn t believe it That was when I thought let s do this thing properly Up until then it was an excuse to go out and have fun but now it was like this is what I m doing I dropped out of university then Singles Cavorting released in August 2007 and Acrylic released in October 2007 captured the group s raw jagged live sound What was good about not having been in a band that long was that we were very raw we weren t calculated at all it was never a case of how are we going to make the song more interesting it was just if we enjoy playing it we ll do it and it was loud and abrasive and quite aggressive in parts because that s how we were playing We rehearsed in our garage we didn t have a PA so I d shout the lyrics The songs were short sharp and snappy they had a passion and we knew we were
