Boston, United States (1994 – present)

(Parts of Cerberus Shoal are now Big Blood , Fire On Fire and Dilly Dilly.)

Cerberus Shoal formed in the fall of 1994. Caleb Mulkerin had relocated from his native South Portland, Maine to Boston in order to join Chriss Sutherland and Thomas Rogers who were both attending universities in the area. All three were fresh from the American high school system and aspiring to begin a new way of life as well as a musical group. At that time, the fourth member, guitarist Josh Ogden, traveled weekly from Falmouth, Maine to Boston for rehearsals. The group played its first show in March of ‘95 at the renowned NYC punk space ABC No Rio. Working through the do-it-yourself punk scene of Ebullition Records and “Book Your own Fucking Life”, this first incarnation of Cerberus Shoal released a self-titled 12-inch record and toured the U$A through the summer of 1995.
In the latter part of ‘95 the second incarnation of the group formed with the arrival of Kristen Hedges from Columbus, Ohio. Hedges took the place of Ogden on guitar. Within the next six months, the singles “Lighthouse in Athens Part One and Two” as well as the full length CD “And Farewell to Hightide” were written and recorded. Philadelphia’s Tree Records released “…Hightide…” in the summer of ‘96, which also included the newest member, New Jersey native, David Mulder playing piano, organ and conga. This seemingly complete group toured throughout the summer only to lose Hedges who returned to Ohio come fall.

    I liked the S/T the most by far, but the other albums are pretty good too.

    I found Cerberus Shoal, Big blood and Fire or Fire and completely unaware they were similar members until now. Not sure if I should be embarrassed or not considering how much I like them all and yet couldn't even tell they were the same peeps.

    probably one of my favorite (in my opinion) the best who played 90's emo. made one of the best and most solid 90's emo records of all time (the s/t, 7" with still life) not only instrumentally were they great, but i think they really stood out as well.

    The Cerberus Shoal offer a rock without constraints and with a structure vaguely psychedelic. Influences more 'marked jazz and world music, with a technique destabilize pushed to the limit. Rich ethnic instrumentation, dense orchestration and hum that develop slowly form a fantastic Symphony evokes the Third Ear Band. hari om .....

    An Ongoing Ding was ok. Chaiming The Knoblessone is where it's at.

    does anyone else like the avant-folk stuff way more than the post-rock stuff? i dunno, it just sounds so much more interesting to me.

    I believe And Farewell to Hightide is closer to the sound of Crash My Moon Yacht than any of their other albums.Next get Homb since it is considered their best , The Land We all Believe In if you like folk influences or s/t if you like emo influences
