About Cable - Taken from Wikipedia:
Cable was a British alternative rock band formed in the early 1990s by Matt Bagguley (guitar, vocals), Darius Hinks (guitar), Pete Darrington (bass) and Neil Cooper (drums). Cooper left in 1995, and was replaced by Richie Mills. Influenced by The Pixies and Steve Albini, they recorded their first session for the BBC's John Peel Show in October 1994.
During recording, the band ran into Oasis at Rockfield Recording Studios and sparked a fight between the Gallagher brothers when a drunk Darius was asked for his opinion of the new Oasis album. Typically honest, he replied: "sounds like the Beatles... a total fucking rip-off and the worst kind of lowest common denominator trash."
In 1997 the single "Freeze the Atlantic" was used in a Sprite TV advert. Despite this and heavy promotion by Infectious Records, as well as critical acclaim from both the indie and metal press, topped with near-constant touring, the band failed cross over to commercial success.
The band was forced to split in 1999 due to a lawsuit filed by their former manager Brian Hallin; their final album Sub-Lingual was therefore, in effect, their obituary.
