Biography

Kingston upon Hull, United Kingdom (1990 – 2008)

Fila Brazillia are from Kingston Upon Hull in East Yorkshire in the UK. They were formed in 1990 by Steve Cobby and David McSherry.

They released six albums on Pork Recordings and after creating their own music label, Twentythree Records in 1999, a further four albums followed. Other releases include a various artists compilation in the Another Late Night series, which featured a new track of theirs, Nature Boy (a Nat King Cole cover), and a more dancefloor-oriented compilation entitled Another Fine Mess, as well as two double albums of Fila remixes commissioned by other artists and labels entitled Brazilification and B2.

They co-produced The Twilight Singers debut l.p with Greg Dulli and collaborated with Harold Budd and Bill Nelson to produce Three White Roses & A Budd EP.

It appears that after releasing their “Best of”-album Retrospective (2006), a single (Neanderthal) and a final four-track EP entitled One Track Mind - EP in 2007 (these last two only available as downloads), Fila Brazillia quietly disbanded in 2008. Steve Cobby had formed the label Steel Tiger Records in late 2006 with Sim Lister. Over the course of 2007, the label saw various digital releases by J*S*T*A*R*S (Cobby and Lister), Peacecorps (Cobby and guitarist Rich Arthurs) and The Cutler (Cobby and Pork). Other projects of his include Solid Doctor and Heights of Abraham (with Lister and Jake Harries). Currently, David McSherry is an instructor of audio processes at the University of Lincoln. He has also recorded a solo LP as mandrillus sphynx.
