If You Were Ever a Fan of the Catherine Wheel, Watch This.

I was (and remain) a big Catherine Wheel fan, a group that should have been much bigger than they were. But because they had the misfortune of being lumped in with the soon-out-of-fashion shoegaze scene and failed to be poppy enough to fit in with Britpop, they kinda fell between the cracks.

But fear not for singer Rob Dickinson. He’s found a nice way to make a living outside of music. (Via Brian)

    It’d be a lot more awesome if he restored Catherine Wheel!!

    His solo album was pretty cool, too, but Catherine Wheel was amazing.
