Artist Bio

XX Teens, formerly Xerox Teens [1] are a five-piece band from London. They began performing in London in 2004 and since then have released six singles, an EP and an LP. Their debut album Welcome To Goon Island was released on 28 June 2008 on Mute Records. It includes the songs "Onkawara" "B-54", "Darlin'", "The Way We Were", "Only You" and other songs from previous releases. The album was recorded with Ross Orton.

In 2005 the band were invited by artist Cerith Wyn Evans to create a performance at Modern Art Oxford marking the gallery's 40th anniversary. In 2008 they performed for Martin Creed at Tate Britain.
In March 2007 they created a performance with Richard Curtis and his famous dog dancing display team at Studio Voltaire. The band played hits such as Cotton-Eyed Joe, Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head and Mr. Sandman while the dogs danced to the music. The performance raised 198.61 for Resonance FM, effectively saving the station from closure.[3]
