The origin of London, England's Orange Can can be traced back to early 1999, when brothers James and Jason Aslett began working on a large number of songs together. Having just finished time in another band, the Asletts decided to fashion a record in their home studio and gather bandmates later. They spent three months recording Entrance High Rise, with the intent to re-record the material after attracting a label with what they had. The independent Regal (U.K. home of the Beta Band and Boymerang) were impressed enough by the record to schedule it for release without changing a thing. Shortly after cementing the deal with Regal, the Asletts recruited bassist Lee Catlin and a drummer, who would later be replaced by Rory Clarke. The quartet recorded The Engine House, an EP that was released just prior to Entrance High Rise. Both the album and EP enjoyed positive comparisons to the Stone Roses and early Pink Floyd, showing strength in atmospherics without dipping into pretense. After a pair of 2001 singles, the Ansletts released their sophomore LP, Home Burns. ~ Andy Kellman
