Alex "Doogle" Uren
The band formed in Brighton, and released a string of self-financed ep's through their management's own Jukebox Timebomb label, before becoming involved with Oxford-based independent, Shifty Disco Records in 2005. They released "Get On Like A House On Fire" through the label as a download only MP3 single, before commencing work on their debut album, "Nervous System". The album was released the same month that they were chosen as the winners of NME's Sony Walkman Breaking Band competition 2006, which garnered them both critical acclaim and media attention. An MP3 of the song "I Was Brave Today" was made available for download, and Jamie Gillett's music video for it was included as a digital bonus on "Nervous System". Their energetic, good humoured, and frequently destructive live performances have earned them a certain amount of notoriety on the UK gig circuit. My Device released a new single entitled "Eat Lead" on 26 February 2007, as a lead up for their 2nd album, "Jumbo Fiasco", which was eventually released on 5 November 2007. The album generally received very positive reviews.
Then in 2010, after numerous overseas tours, they disbanded. All three members of the band now work together as part of NULLIFIER and have formed several other projects independently, including Negative Pegasus, Soft Arrows and Cousin.
