As friends growing up in Lincolnshire, England, singer and guitarists Martin Trimble and bassist Glen Bartup began their music careers playing the blues. In 2002, at the age of 19, they began playing rock and roll as the 22-20's (named after the Skip James song, "22-20 Blues").
Shortly thereafter, the band signed a major label deal with EMI off-shoot Heavenly Records and Astralwerks. The pressures of early success contributed to the 2006 break-up, but in 2008, after performing a one-off show, the 22-20's decided to give it another try. Their latest album, "Shake / Shiver / Moan," was released in May 2010.
Songs performed: "Latest Heartbreak," "Shake / Shiver / Moan" and "Ocean."
