Although they had solid fanbases in places like Toronto and San Francisco, the Catherine Wheel didn’t enjoy the popularity their music deserved. After a series of underrated albums–well, I liked them all–the band broke up 2000.
Today bassist Ben Ellis (the replacement for original bass player Dave Hawes) is playing with Iggy Pop. Guitarist Brian Futter and drummer Neils Sims work together in a group called 50 Ft Monster. And singer Rob Dickinson? He’s living and working in California. His company–called Singer for obvious reasons–turns vintage Porches into mad modern machines. And they sell for a lot of money.
