Reverend & The Makers
Fusing indie rock melodies and attitudes with dance rhythms, Reverend and the Makers were formed by Jon McClure. Previously a member of Judan Suki and 1984, McClure became something of a mentor to Alex Turner, who would become an overnight sensation as the leader of the Arctic Monkeys. McClure formed Reverend and the Makers in 2005, and in the spring of 2006, Arctic Monkeys took McClure and his band on the road as their opening act. Their first single, "Heavyweight Champion of the World," appeared in May 2007. A second single, "He Said He Loved Me," followed, with the group's first album, The State of Things, appearing in shops in September 2007. ~ Mark Deming
