History[edit]

Stuck in the Sound were formed in Paris in 2002. The four group members shared a love of the band Nirvana and its lead singer Kurt Cobain.[2] The name "Stuck in the Sound" came from the fact that when the band first started they locked themselves in a cellar and made music, so they were literally "stuck in the sound".[2] The group released their eponymous début studio album on 1 October 2004, on a compact disc produced by the band's own record label, Stuck Records.[3] Some time after this, the band were signed by French record label Discograph. On 6 September 2006 the band released their first extended play, the Toy Boy EP, which contained four tracks, three of them from their second album.[4]

Two months to the day after the release of the EP their second, although first commercially released, studio album Nevermind the Living Dead was released as a download, CD and LP in France and as a download in a number of other countries.[5] Despite the album failing to enter any national charts, a number of tracks from Nevermind the Living Dead were featured on various compilation albums; "Never On the Radio" appeared on the Les Inrockuptibles Made In France compilation and "Toy Boy" was included on EMI France's L'Alternative Rock collection.[6] In 2008, the song "Toy Boy" was included on the soundtrack of the video game Guitar Hero World Tour.[7]

During the same year, the band began recording their third studio album. They released the single "Ouais" on 1 December 2008 to precede the album and on 26 January 2009, Shoegazing Kids was released to moderate commercial success, achieving a peak position of No. 69 on the French album chart and staying in the Top 200 for a total of six weeks.[8] In France, the album sold over 10,000 copies.[9] "Shoot Shoot", the second single from Shoegazing Kids was brought out on 29 June 2009.[10]
