British punk rockers Kids Near Water formed in April of 2000, in Exeter, counting on with the works of a four-piece team, lead by Brian (vocals, guitar), along with John (bass), Nik (drums), and Simon (guitar, vocals). Initially named Young Church, the British quartet soon decided on changing their designation to Kids Near Water. All of them having previous band experiences, the group swiftly settled on recording its first demo tape after a few rehearsals. The recording eventually conquered a considerable success around the local underground music scene, and shortly afterward, they managed to issue it as their first disc, the EP Extended Player One, in December of 2000. Not long after, the quartet started regularly playing live, ultimately gaining exciting and promising reviews by the local media. Building a sustainable reputation due to their energizing performances, the band conquered a place at several local summer festivals, therefore increasing their growing notability. After yet another regular touring season, including a show alongside Sum 41, the Kids entered the studio to record their second disc. There Is No I in Team, the quartet's second EP, hit the record stores in 2001 through the Firefly Records label.
