Biography

There are at least three bands which use this name:
1. An electronic/nu jazz duo from South Africa
2. An alternative rock band from Germany
3. A rock band from Canada
4. An indie jazz band from Japan

1. Goldfish is a live electronic act from Cape Town, South Africa. The two members Dominic Peters and David Poole are jazz musicians who met while studying music at university. They recorded their first album - ‘’Caught in the Loop’’ - themselves, with little more than a double bass, a saxophone and a couple of synths. This self-released album led to a cult following and numerous hits in their home country, where they have been voted best live act, and are known as the ‘Fishies’ to their fans.

Goldfish have taken their live act across the globe, including opening for Fatboy Slim, Mr Scruff, The Audio Bullys, Paul van Dyk, Pete Tong and Stereo MC’s. ‘Re-invention of the DJ’ is a phrase that has been used to describe their combination of live instruments such as double bass, saxophones, keyboards, flute, and vocals; with samplers, effects, synths, and freeform improvisation.

Goldfish’s second album was signed to Pacha. ‘’Perceptions of Pacha’‘, released at Miami’s Winter Music Conference March 2008, features 10 new tracks and the international release includes a second disc with a live performance video and remixes by top DJs from around the world. The band toured the US and Europe during 2008, and held a 4 month Friday night summer residency at super-club Pacha Ibiza.

    I can't believe more people aren't into them. They make some fantastic music! I just wish they would tour in Southern California. :(

    Don't like the "new" turn they are taking... they are starting to sound like any other house musician out there. The new single just discouraged me even further :/

    So underrated... it's like the common dance music, but jazzy and tribal, making it elegant and original... it's so hard to believe that they're so unknown! [5]
