Amateur Transplants is fronted by London based, British comedian, Adam Kay who specialises in musical parodies. For several years, he was accompanied by Dr. Suman Biswas (born c. 1978). The band's official website states that 'Locum Amateur Transplant Suman Biswas appeared with Adam for a few years, but is now back to healing the sick and lame'. However, Suman noted in June 2012 that "Basically Adam told me last year that since I wasn't free to tour, he was going to take over Amateur Transplants, solo". Amateur Transplants came to prominence in 2005 with a song about the London Underground, parodying the Jam song "Going Underground". They regularly perform live, and have been recommended by Time Out, including several successful years at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
