What's with all these bands and solo types delaying their
releases? (Iggy Pop, Paul Westerberg, Porno For Pyros...) Now Cast, the
Liverpudlian band who are Friends Of Oasis (in fact Noel G. told Q
Magazine this month that "There's better bands than Oasis in England. The Verve
are a better band than we are. And Primal Scream, Cast, Ocean Colour Scene.")
have pushed back the release of All Change to April 2. We don't get it,
considering it's the very same album they released in England last year. Maybe
they're getting fancy rock star ideas from their fancy new friends. Besides
Oasis, they've also been hobnobbing with former Who bassist, John Entwhistle.
They met him when they rented out his Manor Studio outside of London to record
All Change and since that time he has turned into one of their biggest
supporters. Although that may have been because the band was undaunted by the
ghosts who occupy Manor. (Yes it's haunted, but not by the ghost of Keith Moon.
He logs in time at Ramparts Studio.) But what do you expect from a band whose
guitarist, a certain Liam Tyson, insists that he's from the planet Venus, and
never drops the act. Very Pee Wee Herman if you ask us. Cast very well may be
worth the wait, with their delectable pop offerings, like their infectious
single, "All Right," which will be out late next month.
