CAST Released Their Top Guitar Pop Debut LP ‘ALL CHANGE’ 25 Years Ago

17 October 2020

Band: CAST (Liverpool)
Led by John Power who was also
a member (1986 to 1991) of the LA’S
Album: ALL CHANGE

Released: 16 October 1995 – 25 years ago
Score: #7 in the UK

AllMusic/Roch Parisien: “Cast’s All Change serves as the perfect antidote
to the inner rage fueling much American alternative rock, it would be hard
to imagine a more gloriously upbeat backbeat of a guitar pop record, one
that appeals to the eternal adolescent in each of us. The group’s pedigree
derives from good stock, founder John Power having served time with another
fine Mersey combo the La’s. But Cast transcends the hackneyed expectations
of its environment, structure, and genetics through sheer, relentless quality
of songcraft and performance.” Score: 4/5.

Turn Up The Volume: Glorious pop music
still putting a big smile on your face today.
