Elbow are a British alternative rock band. Members of the band first played together in 1990 at The Corner Pin pub in Ramsbottom, Bury, a borough of Greater Manchester. The band currently retain their original line-up of lead vocalist and lyricist Guy Garvey, guitarist Mark Potter, keyboardist Craig Potter, bassist Pete Turner and drummer Richard Jupp. They have released four (top twenty) studio albums, three EPs (Noisebox, Newborn and Any Day Now) and seven top forty singles in the UK. The band is named after a line in the BBC TV drama The Singing Detective. A character (Philip Marlowe) says that the word "elbow" is the most sensuous word in the English language; not for its definition, but for how it feels to say it.
"Grounds for Divorce" is the first single from Elbow's fourth studio album The Seldom Seen Kid.
