"you aren't allowed to say that you're better
you aren't allowed to say that cos you're the hipster type"

to get a slap on the back from a room full of morons?"

"take drugs, don't eat, have contempt for those you meet
take drugs, don't sleep, have contempt for those you meet"

tim (on soccer AM):
"have you ever been into football at all? ever played it?"

"well, we were made to play it at school and stuff but like, what happened were, i was playing it games. i got ill so they'd stopped me doing erm, games for like, a year, and in some kind of weird sexist move they put me in with the girls' game group for the next year. yeah, but while they were like, running around in't cold and that, playing football, i were doing trampolining indoors. so I were well happy about it."

ryan: (about their rock'n'roll riot tour)
"i noticed a bottle of champagne on the rider, for one of maximo park's birthday. but i didn't realise so i drank it all before going onstage, and a few songs in, kicked the bottle in gary's face. it was just above his eye. he was pissing blood, man. the doctors said that if it were an inch closer then it would have killed him. so not only did i almost kill the cunt, but i also ruined maximo park's birthday. not a good night."

ryan: (about t in the park 2004)
"that was at t in the park. it was the first time we'd ever played a festival and we were the first band on, so we started drinking at the crack of dawn so that we wouldn't be nervous. the gig went well, but it gradually descended into us doing handstands and cartwheels! i've seen photos and it looks pretty graceful, but i'm sure it wasn't."

The Cribs are an English 3-piece indie band from Wakefield, West Yorkshire, consisting of twins Gary and Ryan Jarman and their younger brother Ross Jarman.

The band has gone on to release 3 albums - self titled debut The Cribs in 2004 and the follow up album The New Fellas in 2005. Their singles have included "You Were Always The One" (#66 on the UK Singles Chart), "What About Me" (#75), "Another Number", "Hey Scenesters!" (#27), and "Mirror Kissers" (#27). "Martell", the third single from The New Fellas, was released on August 22nd 2005, reaching #39. The band recorded their third album, "Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever'" [1] in Vancouver, BC, Canada with Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand as producer. The album was released on May 21st, preceded by a single, "Men's Needs", on May 7th, which reached #17. "Moving Pictures", the second single from their third album was released on July 30th, charting at #38 on the UK Singles Chart. The third single, a Double A-side featuring "Our Bovine Public" and a new song, "Don't You Wanna Be Relevant?", will be released on October 22nd.

The band are good friends with Leeds indie band the Kaiser Chiefs, and they have regularly toured together and covered each other’s songs. Kaiser Chiefs lead singer Ricky Wilson even invited Ryan as a panellist when he guest-hosted Never Mind the Buzzcocks. The Cribs joined the Kaiser Chiefs and Maxïmo Park for the 05 Rock 'n' Roll Riot Tour tour in October 2005. At the 2006 Reading Festival Ryan joined the Kaiser Chiefs onstage when they performed "Modern Way".

They also toured extensively throughout North America with Death Cab for Cutie and Franz Ferdinand, who toured in 2006.

Their song Martell from The New Fellas release was featured in the Canadian Telus Commercial, a series of commercials known for consistently featuring less mainstream yet iconic music ranging from Daft Punk to Supergrass.

In early 2007 the band held some gigs in very small, intimate venues, including a show in their hometown at the Wakefield Escobar and another at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds (a venue they used to play at when they first started out). In June, they returned to Leeds to finish their tour with two consecutive nights at the University Refectory (the first band to do this since Ian Dury and the Blockheads 30 years ago). Also on this tour a date in Glasgow at the King Tuts Wah Wah Hut the venue flooded so the band played in the admiral bar, which is a pub nearby the venue, this was attened by members of Franz Ferdinand

The Cribs are seen by many as deserving of more acknowledgement, with Ricky Wilson of the Kaiser Chiefs describing them as "one of the most under-rated bands around" on Never Mind the Buzzcocks.

They appeared on Later with Jools Holland in May 2007, prior to the release of Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever, where they played the songs Men's Needs, Our Bovine Public and I'm a Realist.

Their song "Hey Scenesters!" was listed in NME's "50 Greatest Indie Anthems Of All Time", they were one of only a few contemporary bands included in the list.
