• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Archive is a British trip-hop/AlternativeRock band founded in 1994.

Fronted by Darius Keeler and Danny Griffiths, Archive released its first album, Londinium, in 1996; lead vocals were by Roya Arab and Rosko John. The style was influenced by Massive Attack's brand of trip-hop. The album received moderate critical acclaim, but tensions within the band resulted in a split later that year--according to some sources, said split happened mid-interview.

The band re-formed in 1997, this time using Suzanne Wooder as lead vocalist, and released its second album, Take My Head, two years later. It used electronica and beat loops to nice effects, but Wooder didn't stay in the band. Since then, Archive has released four more albums, You All Look The Same To Me in 2002, Noise in 2004, Lights in 2006 and Controlling Crowds in 2009. The general evolution of the band's music has been away from trip-hop and towards Progressive Rock.
