Kaiser Chiefs are an indie rock band from Leeds, England, formed in 1996 as Runston Parva, then changed to just Parva; however, after their record deal fell apart with a single album due to the label's closure, they decided to start from scratch and rechristened themselves with their current name, with which they would achieve international success. Their current name comes from Kaizer Chiefs, a football team from Johannesburg (South Africa), in which one of Leeds United's all-time famous players, Lucas Radebe, started his career.
