cast - original
After announcing their reformation last year and confirming a full UK tour;

To celebrate 15 years since "All Change" Cast decided to play out the record in full among their other hits and cast songs.

This was the first time Cast performed together since 2001.

John Powers said on the reforming and the tour:
"I have been stopped in the street. People have heard news of the shows and are buzzing. As a band we are totally excited to get on stage and play to the fans"”

"All Change", Cast’s, debut LP was released 15 years ago went on to be the fastest selling debut record for the Polydor label.  It went on to sell over a million records worldwide and began the bands successful career. Cast have had 10 top 10 singles and released 3 studio albums.

The tour features the classic line-up of: John Power (guitar/vocals); Liam ‘Skin’ Tyson (lead guitar); Pete Wilkinson (bass) and Keith O’Neill (drums).



NEW ALBUM - GET INVOLVED! stop

In the years since ‘All Change’ hit the shops the music business has changed an enormous amount. The rise of the internet means there are new ways of reaching fans and getting music heard that weren’t available to us throughout the 90s. So we’ve joined up with PledgeMusic to offer you an album that is made outside of the major label system and completely with your involvement every step of the way.

If you’re not yet familiar with PledgeMusic, it allows us to open up the way this album comes together and give you guys the opportunity to be more involved in the process. You’ll still be able to get hold of the album but there are a ton of other things that might tickle your fancy, and every ‘pledge’ goes towards helping us make the record. When we reach 100% we are all go! Check it out.

Part of the process is the updates page which is only accessible to people who have pledged on the project. It’s like an exclusive FREE blog just for you. It’s part of what makes this system work so well and it’s a cool way for us to build a little community together right through to the record release.

Another key aspect of this whole thing is that the PledgeMusic platform allows us to nominate a charity and donate a percentage of the profits from this project to it automatically. We’ve chosen Shelter because they do such awesome work to help people in the UK who are facing homelessness or who have housing issues. Thanks in advance for helping us to help them.

Lastly, everyone who pledges will get also get the option of a download of the finished album as standard once the project is released.

We hope you dig this and we’ll see you on the road soon.

ALL CHANGE - DELUXE EDITION stop

cast
On the 15th Anniversary of the release of their debut album, All Change and on the eve of a UK tour, by the newly-reformed classic line-up, comes the Deluxe Edition of All Change by Liverpool band, Cast.

This superb deluxe edition comes with a second CD, comprising the group’s barnstorming live set from Leeds in 1996 plus a selection of early demos made by the band’s lead vocalist and guitarist, John Power.

John Leckie who produced All Change says:
“There are some really great demos John did by himself in his bedroom. Songs like ‘Fine Time’ and ‘Back Of My Mind’ have got that magical quality The La’s Demos had. They feel very precious.”

Released in 1995, All Change was to become the fastest selling debut in Polydor’s history, outstripping The Who, Jimi Hendrix and The Jam.

The album sold over one million copies and spawned four Top 20 singles: Alright, Sandstorm, Finetime and Walkaway.

The stand-alone single, Flying, which reached Number 4 in the UK charts also features on this deluxe edition both in the form of the original studio recording as well as one of John’s earlier demos.Cast aficionados will also be delighted by the inclusion of the outtake, All My Days, which has achieved near-mythical status amongst fans.
