Craig formed the Underground Youth in 2009 and Fuzz Club started releasing the and’s music in 2011. Initially it was just Craig and Olya but they soon expanded to a four-piece and gained recognition around the world. They have toured the UK and Europe. Their single saw airplay from Gideon Coe on BBC6. They also jaunted to Austin, Texas to play Reverb Conspiracy Volume One, and event put on by Fuzz Club and Austin Psych Fest.
