The Boy Least Likely To - Jof (lyrics/vocals) and Peter (music/instruments), who are strongly influenced by the independent bands of the 1980s such as Altered Images, Aztec Camera and Orange Juice, bring their charming rural pop sound mixed with a quirky indie folk style to Norwich Arts Centre, St Benedict's, on Monday night.

The band released their debut album, The Best Party Ever, on Valentine's Day 2005 through Rough Trade. The album sold out of the initial 1,000 copies within days.

2006 saw Jof and Peter take their five-piece band across the UK and USA (both supporting James Blunt and as headliners) to rapturous responses from fans and media alike. While some of the venues have been less than glamorous, the band's performances have been never been anything but inspiring.

In November, The Boy Least Likely To supported Razorlight on their arena tour of the UK.

Main support comes from Californian indie band the Little Ones, who kick off 2007 in support their latest single Oh, MJ which is released through Heavenly on January 29.
