The Like

Post by theartfulcassie on Fri Jun 11, 2010 2:09 am

So, this thread, obviously, is about The Like. I'm pretty certain you'll all have heard/seen me ramble and flail on about this indie quartet.

The Like were formed in September 2001 by Elizabeth "Z" Berg (vocals/guitar), Charlotte Froom (bass/vocals) and Tennessee Thomas at the ages of 16, 15 and 16, respectively. All three are daughters of music industry veterans; Berg's father is former Geffen Records A&R exec/record producer Tony Berg, Froom's father is producer Mitchell Froom and Thomas' father is Pete Thomas, longtime drummer for Elvis Costello. From childhood, bassist Froom, singer/guitarist Berg and drummer Thomas were immersed in classic rock, and all three took piano lessons before teaching themselves their current instruments.[2]

They formed when the parents of childhood friends Thomas and Froom learned that Berg had been writing songs and showed interest in forming a band. Froom learned bass two weeks before joining, and the three began working together, getting fast results. The name comes from a habit that the girls, as many do, have of saying "like" all the time. Thomas' mother suggested the name and it stuck.


Thanks, Wikipedia for saving me while my sister nags to get on.

So, what are your favourite things about this musical foursome?
