About The Cribs

One of the U.K.'s cult favorite bands, the Cribs blend quintessentially British influences like Sex Pistols and the Smiths with American indie heroes like Beat Happening. The tuneful songs, raw production, and guitar heroics on their 2004 self-titled debut album made them outliers, but their authenticity -- and constant gigging -- soon earned them critical acclaim and chart success with 2007's Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever. With 2009's Ignore the Ignorant, the band began a string of top ten selling albums that took their music to its poppiest and noisiest extremes and featured star producers ranging from Ric Ocasek on 2015's For All My Sisters to Steve Albini on 2017's 24-7 Rockstar Shit. By the time of 2020's Night Network, the Cribs were more in control of their music than ever, and the independent spirit and raw sounds of groups such as IDLES and Yard Act reflected their continuing relevance.
