cable

When I was a wee whippersnapper, around the time of the Industrial Revolution, I played guitar for a bunch of grunge chancers called cable. We coulda been contenders. In this video, I’m the one with the crew cut who’s so lazy he sits down halfway through. The dog was called Brindle. I wanted to steal him.

We recorded three albums, one with Shimmydisc/Butthole Surfers legend Kramer and did a whole bunch of Peel sessions before being sued out of existence by a man I am too polite to describe accurately. Our albums were called Downlift the Uptrodden, When Animals Attack and Sublingual and they’re all on Apple music if you want to laugh at my wonky guitar playing.

If you want to know all the gory details, we have a Wikipedia page here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cable_(British_band)

We reformed in 2013 for a few gigs and managed not to end up in court this time.
