First / Bio

"London's finest visually-challenged 3-piece band. First are a slow-motion wave, the world's best horse, as it were. Twelve eyes, thirty fingers, two hairy backs and one smooth. First was invented secretly in, oh God, 2009 and birthed, or born, if you will, to an applauding audience of slack-jawed gawkers, baying and cheering, intoxicated and obliviously opinionated. Always judging. First's parents are the filly Serafin and the stud The Display Team, a fine pedigree if ever you heard one. Really good at getting from A to B, First is a powerful band, if not the fasted round the track. It has been said that if Lester Piggott were riding First, he would've won a Cup. A heavy band, but light-footed with strong back legs, a lovely gallop, 20/1. The highest rated band in the world right now, and in a purple Jacket with lime green stripes, First is in a zone of its own, and one which easily encompasses all other zones. We'll find out what it is about First when eventually it is deceased, maybe it has a heart twice the size of other bands, it certainly has six half-pairs of incredibly daunting lungs. First may be admired, looked upon whistfully, or shot whence lame, but it cannot be bought. Sixty million? I don't know. This is exactly what the handicappers want to see, and it'll boost First's rating by a mile. The best racehorse we've ever seen."
