Ship of fools

    SHIP OF FOOLS were a UK-based band that formed in 1992, consisting of Sputnik (bass), Damien Clarke (keyboards), Les Smith (keyboards) and Mick Reed (drums). Andy Banks (guitars, mandolin, gliss) hooked up with the band soon after, along with Graham Wilkes (flutes, harmonica).

    Following this release Wilkes apparently left the band (although he would appear as a guest musician on their next release), and was replaced by Oko (guitar). With this slightly revamped line-up in place a new album was recorded, released as "Out There Somewhere" in 1994.

    The band folded in 1996 due to musical differences.

    In 2002 Smith, who had worked with CRADLE OF FILTH and ANATHEMA following the split of SHIP OF FOOLS, took the time to put together a compilation chronicling the explorations of his former band, released as "Let's Get This Mother Outta Here" the same year. « hide
