Fiend was the alias of Scottish musician Brendan O'Hare, a well-traveled member of the 1990s alternative pop scene. O'Hare first garnered notice as the drummer of the great Teenage Fanclub, exiting the group in the wake of their 1993 LP Thirteen; he next surfaced in the Telstar Ponies, followed by a stint in Mogwai. In addition to Fiend -- a moody space-rock solo project first heard on 1997's Caledonian Gothic -- he also concurrently led his own band, Macrocosmica. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
