Biography

Fishcake are currently a 5-piece alternative rock band from Leicester, England.

Originally formed in the late 90’s as 3-piece, they began life as “John the Fishcake”, playing covers of their influences including Green Day, Nirvana, Pixies and the Lemonheads. Founding members Richard (Springy) Springthorpe (guitar / vocals), Neil Taylor (Bass) and Richard Buckby (Drums) shortened the name to simply “Fishcake” shortly afterwards and began writing their own material and gigging around Leicester.

Soon enough, the band recruited Paul Wright to take over as lead vocalist to give Springy greater freedom on the guitar and the band began to evolved into an altogether darker, heavier sound that reflected their individual listening habits, including Shellac, Slint, Silverchair, Deftones, Fugazi, Helmet and Tool to name but a few.

In 2002 the band recorded their first EP at Seamus Wong studio’s in Leicester, producing only 50 copies and giving them all away for free to anybody who requested them.

Not until 2008 did the band release another record. The band were offered an opportunity to record some tracks by Andrew Jackson (then of Maybeshewill) which the band duly obliged. Recording 3 tracks in one 4 hour session at a Leicester rock club venue, and then mixed and mastered by Andy and John Helps (also, and currently, of Maybeshewill) the tracks were to be made into Fishcake’s simply titled “EP2”.
