This band is no longer active. It may have split up or changed its name.
Sammy USA are best known as the band that were to later become Duels. The Leeds-based five-piece released one 7" single on Fierce Panda, featuring 'Doorway of a Dancehall' backed with 'Being Beaten'. In 2003, Kaiser Chiefs were to play their first post-Parva gig as a Sammy USA support act.
The band deservedly garnered attention for their catchy indie-pop, but poor label choices left them restricted. A name-change followed in late 2004, along with the old songs being replaced by shiny new ones and the band signing a new record deal as Duels.
