Cassie • The Light Shines On

Formed on the Isle of Wight in 1978 the four-piece of Nigel Hayles-Guitar, Debbie Barker – Lead Vocals, Eric Biggs-Bass and Hugh Kim Lewis on drums was originally known as FLIRT before changing their name to CASSIE in 1979; likely as a nod to BLONDIE whose songs the group favored along with the likes of THE PRETENDERS, RAMONES and EDDIE & THE HOT RODS.

RELEASE
  • Artist: Cassie (England, UK)
  • Title: “The Light Shines On”
  • Format: Vinyl LP 12-inch 33rpm / Vinyle LP 30cm 33T
  • Label(s): Reminder Records REM-07
  • Year: 2021
ABOUT
  • Release of a 13 track compilation of Cassie tracks.
    From several demo and recording sessions occurred between early 1980 and 1983, all of which remained unreleased until now.

  • Condition: New / sealed.

Despite local radio airplay and gigging, it was not until Flirt caught the attention of former Black Sabbath co-manager and producer Wilf Pine in 1981 that they group would issue what would be their first and only single. Under Pine’s management and with the new name of Cassie, the group re-recorded new versions of ‘Change My Image’ and ‘Will You’ for a single release on A.K.A. Records in 1982. Despite the record’s strength, A.K.A.’s untenable financial situation resulted in almost zero promotion for Cassie’s single. Cassie continued to gig and record for a few more years before ultimately disbanding with its members joining other bands. A tragic moment in the band’s history occurred in 2002 with the passing of original songwriter and guitar, Nigel Hayles. Thankfully, his great talents are now showcased within this album.
