Llama FarmersLlama Farmers sprung into existence in a school classroom in Greenwich, London sometime in 1996. Friends William Briggs and Brooke Rogers, bored of algebra, asked the 14 year old Jennie Simpson to join them on bass in their then nameless band. On her first rehearsal Jennie brought along her older brother, Bernie Simpson, for moral support but by the end of the rehearsal he too had been recruited on guitar and vocals. A Chilean friend at school, who the band had nicknamed ’Llama Farmer’, gave them their somewhat unusual (and slightly racist) monicker.
