There's one thing I don't understand: according to all the sources I've checked, their first record ("Love Goes to a Building on Fire") came out in 1977, so they shouldn't have been eligible before 2002/03. Could someone clarify this?

Yes, but if their first record didn't come out before 1977 they shouldn't have been eligible before the 2003 ceremony, am I right?

They're not required to start from the year a band's first album released, it's just a rule of thumb.

Looks like they recorded some demos in 1976:
