Ja wahnsinn.... :-) I am surprised!!!!
I've added a quick translation....

Progressiv, aber ohne Eskapaden
Die englische Band Elbow
Von Paul Baskerville

Wie heißt eine der erfolgreichsten Bands in Großbritannien? Elbow. Aber es hat eine Weile gedauert, bis sie etabliert war. Die Bandmitglieder spielten zum ersten Mal 1990 zusammen. Allerdings erschien erst 2001 das Debütalbum "Asleep in the Back".

Das lag an ihrem Plattenvertrag - er wurde wieder gekündigt, bevor die ersten Aufnahmen überhaupt veröffentlicht waren. Spätestens 2008 wurde dann deutlich, dass Elbow es endgültig geschafft hat. Das vierte Album "The Seldom Seen Kid" gewann den prestigeträchtigen Mercury, der in England alle zwölf Monate für das kulturell hochwertigste Album des Jahres verliehen wird.

2009 bekam Elbow auch noch den Brit Award für die beste Band des Jahres verliehen. Die Mitglieder von Elbow haben die Plattensammlungen ihrer älteren Geschwister geliebt, sind von Genesis und David Bowie inspiriert worden. Sänger Guy Garvey meint, er habe das Songschreiben letztendlich durch Peter Gabriel gelernt.

Etwas selbstironisch sagt er: "Wir sind wie Prog Rock ohne die langen Solo-Eskapaden".
Die Bandmitglieder leben inzwischen alle wieder in der Kleinstadt Bury bei Manchester, wo sie aufgewachsen sind.

Das aktuelle fünfte Album "Build a Rocket Boys!" widmet sich thematisch ihrer Kindheit in dieser Gegend.


Translation:
Progressive, but without antics.
The english band Elbow

What's the name from one of the most successful bands in Great Britain? Elbow. But it took a while, until they've been established.The bandmembers played the first time together in 1990. But it was not until 2001 there debut-album "AITB" has been released.

It was down to the fact of there Record contract - it was canceled again, before the first recordings were released. Ever since 2008 it became clear, that Elbow made it finaly. The forth album "TSSK" won the prestigious Mercury, which is given every twelve months to the cultural most valuable album of the year.

In 2009 Elbow also got the Brit Sward for the best band of the year. The members of Elbow have loved the record collection of their older siblings, have been inspired by Genesis and David Bowie. Singer Guy Garvey reckons that he has learnd songwriting by Peter Gabriel.

A little self-ironc he says: "we are like Prog-rock without the long solo-antics."

The band members are meanwhile living in the small town Bury near Manchester, where they grew up.
The latest fifth album "BARB" dedicates thematically to their youth around this area.
