Atkinson and Potashnick had been former school close friends who reunited while surviving in London, after both accepted they were attempting to make a direct effect with their particular bands.

Rooster’s debut one, ‘Come Obtain Some’, reached the united kingdom Top 10 in November. The quartet received a lot of publicity if they became the very first music group to broadcast a concert live by cellular phone, making use of their gig in the Institute of Modern Arts in London on 2 November 2004 shown from the 3 cellular network. The quartet’s debut recording was released the next January.
