Profile
Progressive rock band originally formed in London in 1982 with Gordon Feenie (drums, flute) and Cyrus (bass, vocals), joined shortly by Tim Taylor (guitar). That version of the band split up in 1988 and Cyrus returned home to Scotland. Two years later Cyrus met with old guitarist friend Frank Kennedy, who with friends Stewart Bell (drums, keys) and Dave Elam (bass) had a few songs written. After a few months Stewart went onto keys and drummer Chris Colvin was brought in. With Cyrus on vocals and flute Citizen Cain MkII was complete, and the band went on to record a number of albums.
