Biography

From Wikipedia —- Finitribe was a music band from Edinburgh, Scotland. The group is sometimes also referred to as Fini Tribe. The name was taken from finny tribe, a term used by the Rosicrucians to describe the fishes.

They began in the mid as Gallery Macabre, an band, before moving into a sample based style, setting up their Finiflex label, playing and recording as funds allowed. Following a period on Chicago’s Wax Trax!, and the limited release of two twelve-inch singles, the band restructured with the departure of some band members and migration of vocalist Chris Connelly to join the Ministry / Revolting Cocks crew.

Based on the success of the track “Detestimony” from the Let the Tribe Grow” EP, the remaining members became a more dance-oriented act signing to One Little Indian. The label was then home of The Shamen, a group which had undergone a similar transition from guitar rock to dance music, although Finitribe never approached The Shamen’s considerable commercial impact. The group had minor mainstream success with dance mixes of the tracks “101” and “Forevergreen” from their 1992 album, An Unexpected Groovy Treat. The follow up LP Sheigra failed to meet with the same success despite critical acclaim. In 1996, the group, slimmed down to Miller and Pinsky with a collection of vocal collaborators, released a final album Sleazy Listening, in a / style, in 1998.
