Biography

Cazals: a short history

OK, so let’s begin with some things you may already know about Cazals: 1. They’ve known Pete Doherty since they were boys, and have toured with Babyshambles. 2. On account of living in London and - y’know - knowing how to dress well, some people think they’re fashonistas; 3. All five of ’em used to live together. In Whitechapel; 4. A couple of them made cameo appearances in Nathan Barley. 5. They used to put on all night warehouse parties – most notably Cazalaid, organised to raise money after ALL their equipment got stolen – in London’s east end. Bloc Party played. It was a great night.

Got all that? Good. Now please forget it. Cazals are as bored of it as you should be. For Cazals, as you will see, are a band who, in every respect, are all about the future.

“There’s so much more to this band than that,” Says lead guitarist (& manager!) Daniel. This is true. For example: second guitarist Luca makes a healthy living DJ’ing electronic music (“I’m more into Digitalism than I am into guitar stuff,” he shrugs), Phil, the singer, has been cast in a number of up-coming British Independent films, while bassist Martin is a re-mixer and producer of some repute. He’s the man mainly responsible for making ‘What Of Our Future?’ - his band’s debut album due out in the new year - sound like one of the most forward-thinking guitar based albums in ages. His recording implements include drainpipes (as in actual pipes, not the trousers), bits of paper being ripped and effects pedals he has made himself out of Gameboys. But anyway, we’re getting ahead of ourselves here…
