 Iliotibial band syndrome - WikiHealth
The iliotibial band is a superficial thickening of tissue on the outside of the thigh, extending from the outside of the pelvis, over the hip and knee, and inserting just below the knee.
The band is crucial to stabilizing the knee during running, moving from behind the femur to the front of it during the gait cycle.
The continual rubbing of the band over the bone, combined with the repeated flexion and extension of the knee during running may cause the area to become inflamed or the band itself may become irritated.

 NME.COM - Reviews - Athlete : Vehicles And Animals
As is the case with South London's Athlete, a band who single-handedly revive twenty-something bland-lad from his nineties slumber, zip up his Duffer and send him out bleary-eyed into the wide world with a hope and a prayer and a dodgy mockney accent.

But if a band as complacent as Athlete are meant to represent the future hopes of British indie when, elsewhere, rock has rediscovered its (cutting-) edge, then something's gravely amiss.
