22-20s were a band from Lincolnshire with indie, blues and folk influences. They formed in 2003 and released their self-titled debut album (22-20s) the following year. The band's name comes from the Skip James song '22-20 Blues'.
In early 2006, after four years together touring, with difficulties recording their follow-up album and a desire to change musical direction, the band mutually agreed to split up.
On 3 May, 2012, the band announced on Twitter that guitarist Dan Hare decided to leave the band.
22-20s quietly split for a second time in 2013.
