Profile China Doll were formed in 2000 by original Guitarist Matt Rowley and Drummer Simon Henshaw. Later that year Rob Wylde answered an ad and became the band’s vocalist, also taking on Bass and Songwriting duties. The band were completed by Slovenian Keyboardist Sasha Bergant. In 2001 Rowley left the band to start a career as a sound engineer and was replaced by Rich Housechild. The band toured throughout the UK before recording and releasing their debut EP “Better Late Than Never” in late 2002.

The following year the band caught the attention of Nottingham based record label TB Records who put them on a UK tour in the summer of 2003 opening for Danger Danger and signed a 2 album deal. Unfortunately, neither Housechild nor Henshaw could fully commit to the band, TB lost interest and the band soon split. Straight afterwards Rob Wylde would go on to form and find success in Powerpop band Teenage Casket Company.


Thanks to Rob Wylde
