THE WAKE


THE WAKE

There have been at least 3 bands called The Wake, including a Scottish post-punk band, an American goth band and a Finnish death metal band.

1. The Wake were a Scottish post punk and later indie pop band, founded in Glasgow in 1981 by Gerard ?Caesar? McInulty (formerly of Altered Images), Steven Allen and Joe Donnelly, who was later replaced by Bobby Gillespie. Steven?s sister Carolyn Allen soon joined, and remained in the band until its end.

The Wake released their first single on their own Scan 45 label, coupling together On Our Honeymoon and Give Up. This single eventually caught the attention of New Order manager Rob Gretton, who helped the band sign to Factory Records in 1982 and record an LP (Harmony) at Strawberry Studio in Stockport. This was followed by a number of singles on Factory and its French sister label Factory Benelux. In 1983, The Wake toured with New Order, and thus received critical attention but were often unfavourably compared to their more celebrated labelmates. Gillespie was asked to leave in 1983, subsequently playing drums with The Jesus and Mary Chain and achieving fame with his own band Primal Scream. Alexander ?Mac? Macpherson replaced Gillespie in 1983. That same year the band recorded a session on John Peel?s BBC program. The band toured extensively and scored an indie hit with their 1984 single ?Talk About the Past? which featured Vini Reilly of Durutti Column on piano. The recording and release of their seminal 1985 album Here Comes Everybody marked the apex of their career.
