All Music Guide:
A part of Exeter, England's punk scene, the Computers feature singer/guitarist Alex Kershaw, guitarist Sonny Crawford, bassist Nic Heron, and drummer Will Wright. Looking for a way to stand out, the band fused hardcore punk with garage rock and blues. Soon after forming, the band caught the ears of Radio 1 Punk Show host Mike Davies, who played their debut single and invited them to play a live session on the show. The Computers signed to Fierce Panda, which released their debut mini-album You Can't Hide From in 2008. For their 2010 debut full-length, This Is the Computers, the band worked with Rocket from the Crypt's John "Speedo" Reis, who helped them lay down the tracks in a matter of days. Love Triangles Hate Squares, which took a more eclectic approach than their earlier work, arrived in April 2013.
