Listen to their song 'Lovelost'

SpeedmanA restless man in his early 20s was being driven to dementia by a constant mindplay of catchy riffs and hooks. Advised by a psychotherapist to either go under heavy medication or form a band, he chose the latter. Thus Speedman was born. In late 2000, three-piece indie pop/rock act Speedman was formed by brothers Paul (vocals & guitar) and Derek Lynch (drums) with old-time pal Stuart Doherty (bass). The track featured here - 'Lovelost' - was recorded in March 2001 as part of a their first demo, a three-track affair featuring. Spliced with tasty hooks, meaty guitars, and a cavern of melody, Speedman tread new ground between British introspection and US rock sensibiliites. And with a ferocious and intense live show quickly gaining reputation, Speedman are a band not to be dismissed.
