Siiiii were born in early 1983 when singer Paul, then only 19, moved from his native East Anglia to Sheffield purely to be in the band, joining guitarist Mark, and bassist Ange. Taking their name from William Burroughs’ “The Soft Machine” they gigged extensively during the early to mid 1980’s and possibly hold the record for the amount of times they were nearly signed to record labels. Siiiii disbanded in 1986 and the members went their separate ways. Mark went on to play with the Anti-Group and Paul became involved in The Niceville Tampa (now Niceville) and then DVO in South Wales. In 2005 having been “rediscovered” after a chance meeting of emails between Paul and Mick Mercer, the band are back, writing some incredible new material and cleaning up the analogue tracks from those early years. So, Siiiiii are in the process of putting together 2 CD’s. The first is of the archive material from the early 1980’s, called “Ancient”, due for release in March / April this year. The second, called “Modern” contains all new songs, issue date to be confirmed. Both albums will be released on the band’s own King Sol label. A new generation awaits them…
