Biography

United Kingdom

Angelfish was an alternative rock band from Scotland. The band was made up mostly of former members of the band Goodbye Mr. Mackenzie.

Shirley Manson is the best known of them, because Angelfish helped launch her career as the vocalist for the band Garbage. Originally, she played keyboards and did some back-up vocals in Goodbye Mr Mackenzie, but was given the role of lead vocals when GMM became Angelfish. The rest of the Angelfish—Martin Metcalfe, Fin Wilson and Derek Kelly—are now in the band Isa & The Filthy Tongues, whose debut album was released in May of 2006. They can also be heard on the soundtrack for Richard Jobson’s new film “New Town Killers” recently premiered in Edinburgh, 2009.

Angelfish had a small hit with the single “Suffocate Me”, which had caught the eye of producer Butch Vig. Vig soon after asked Manson to join his band Garbage, which led to Angelfish breaking up soon afterwards.
