Roy's Iron DNA are a Scottish band based in Edinburgh, UK. The band were formed by friends Ian Thompson and Luke Mallet, and were originally known as Ordinaryson. The NME has praised the band for blending "musical ideas from the 60s the punk era right through to contemporary electronica, trip hop at it's darkest. This is a very interesting band”. After years of extensive touring of the UK and self funded single and EP releases, they released their debut album Men In Wax Jackets in November 2007 on indie label, Alex Tronic Records. On its release, the album was awarded favourable reviews in the press, with the Daily Record saying “they are music for toasting yourself after a heavy night in Ibiza” and Scottish music magazine Is This Music? compared them to the Beta Band, noting it is "heavy on the beats, strong on the air of mystery”. One track from the album 'Reason' was described by The Fly magazine as "single of the year". Men In Wax Jackets was named album of the month by DJ Vic Galloway as album of the month on his show on BBC Radio 1. To promote the album, Roy's Iron DNA toured the UK with the Lo-Fidelity Allstars and The Go! Team on separate tours.
