(1): Cast was formed in 1993 by John Power, the former bassist of The La’s. They released four albums between 1995 and 2001. Cast were at the height of their popularity during the mid-90’s Britpop movements. Whilst popular, they were seen as one of the “lesser” bands of the moment, often overshadowed by the likes of more popular bands such as Blur, Oasis and Pulp. It has been suggested that the name “Cast” was taken from the final line of the final song on The La’s eponymous (and only) album. The song “Looking Glass” ends with the line “”The stone is cast, the glass is smashed”.
After the commercial failure of their final studio album Beetroot in 2001, Cast split in 2002. John Power would subsequently release a solo album. In 2005 it was announced The La’s were reforming with John Power included, this would seem to preclude any comeback for Cast for the foreseeable future.
