The original names of the band before becoming The 1975 were Talkhouse, The Slowdown, Big Sleep, and Drive Like I Do.
Did you know that Matthew Healy discovered the band name in the back of a beat-era book given to him at a yard sale.
“In the back there were all these mental scribbling, it was almost suicidal, and it was dated at the bottom ‘1st June, The 1975’. The use of the word ‘The’ really stuck with me. It was the perfect band name.” – Matt Healy
