Biography

Bay was a slowcore act founded in Falkirk, Scotland by singer-songwriter Jason Taylor (vocals/guitar/ bass, ex-Happymen) and drummer Aidan Moffat (drums, ex-Someone’s Daughter) in 1994, before the latter left to co-found Arab Strap with Malcolm Middleton. Moffat worked in Sleeves Records, while Taylor worked in Music City across the road. Their music was heavily influenced by contemporary slowcore bands like Codeine and Red House Painters. They signed with local Anoise Annoys label to release an EP of sparse songs, “Happy Being Different” in 1994. This was followed in 1995 by a double album, “Alison Rae”, for which they recruited Ross Miller (keyboards) & Ronnie Young (guitar, ex-Bed In The Sea). In early 1995 they featured live on B.B.C. Scotland with an American bass player from The Chubbies, before Taylor lost interest and Moffat formed Arab Strap. Taylor at that time was also a member of Lowlife, Miller joined Clockwork Pig, and Young later helped out The International Pop Assassins. Taylor later formed Mosca.
