    The Draytones were formed by Argentine guitarist Gabriel Boccazzi (from Buenos Aires) and drummer Luke Richardson (from Grimsby) in Camden, London in 2006.

    The pair were introduced by the owner of the famous Bethnal Green live music venue The Pleasure Unit, Nigerian Nick 'The Kick'. They wrote a handful of songs in Boccazzi's flat in Camden before meeting bassist Chris Le Good (from Twickenham).

    They rehearsed as a three piece and played their first show at the Skrimshankers night at 93 Feet East, Brick Lane, London supporting Luke's friend's band The Hoosiers (then called The Hoosier Complex).

    Having played only 2 shows, the band were contacted through their myspace page by 1965 Records with regards to the band playing a show at the 'The Windmill Of Your Mind' night at The Windmill, Brixton with 1965 Records 1st signing, The View. It was at this, their 3rd ever show, that The Draytones were offered a record deal with 1965 Records. It was on this same night that they met Stan Kybert (Oasis, Paul Weller, Massive Attack) who later became the band's producer.
