Cast are an English rock band from Liverpool, formed in 1992 by John Power and Peter Wilkinson after Power left The La's and Wilkinson's former band Shack had split. Following early line-ups with different guitarists and drummers, Liam "Skin" Tyson and Keith O'Neill joined Cast in 1993. Emerging from the Britpop movement of the mid-1990s, Cast signed to Polydor Records and their debut album All Change became the highest selling album for the label. Further commercial success continued with the albums Mother Nature Calls and Magic Hour, however the band's fourth album Beetroot was far less successful which led to the band's split soon after. Cast reunited for a UK tour in November 2010. Their 2012 album Troubled Times received mixed reviews and was not a commercial success. Noel Gallagher of Oasis described watching the band live as being like a "religious experience". It has been suggested that the name "Cast" was taken from the final word on The La's eponymous album, John Power has since confirmed this to be true, stating that he avoided answering this question for some time.
