Biography

There are four artists called Cecil, one is Japanese, one is from Liverpool, one is from Sydney, Australia & the other is from New Jersey:

Liverpool’s “Cecil” - Formed in Liverpool in 1993 by Ste Williams (vocals), Patrick Harrison (guitar), Ally Lambert (drums), Anthony Hughes (guitar), and Jay Bennet (bass). They took part in a Liverpool Echo sponsored(?) Battle Of The Bands. This brought them to the attention of EMI sub Parlophone Recs who released their 1st single ‘No Excuses/Upside Down Smile’ (R 6418) in October 1995.

Being on EMI gained them support slots on a few headline tours with The Levellers and Skunk Anansie. A few more singles followed prior to the release of the LP ‘Bombar Diddlah’ CD/LP 7384), which helped gain a few more followers. A single was released in October ‘97 ‘Hostage In A Frock/Stubborn Feather’, EMI pulled out the stops and put out limited green vinyl , bonus CD singles etc (R 6471), which helped the boys score a #68 entry onto the UK Chart.

A further single, again in various formats ‘The Most Tiring Day/Sliphillclimb’ was put out in early 1998, and followed up by the 2nd Album ‘Subtitles’ (CD/LP 859821). The promise created by the sales of the previous two singles did not continue and Cecil called it a day, with EMI deleting all their material shortly after.

Following ‘Subtitles’ the band reformed under the bandname Voy which was a lighter more commercial sounding outfit, and a few years later again resurfaced under the band name Fridge Mountain Fires.

In 2008 Cecil played a reunion gig

    Listening to 'subtitles' atm. It's still bloody brilliant. Would have liked to have seem Cecil but didn't find out about their reunion gig recently until the day it was happening. Finding the cd single 'My Neck' in andy's records for 99p back in the 90's was one of my greatests bargain finds.

    Can't wait to see the Scouse Cecil in June. Anyone else going along? Seems strange to think it was 10 years ago they supported Mansun on their second tour they did together... When I was young *sigh* No doubt though - Cecil are still one of the best bands I have ever seen live... And I'm not talking about the Jap Cecil there!
