About Cody

At least three bands by the name Cody: 1. Cody (UK), 2. Cody (Denmark) 3. The "Eurobeat" Cody whose songs appear as downloads below.

1. Cody (UK)
Oxford (UK) based 4-piece Cody, who seem to share their name with another, rockier outfit on here, originally formed in 1996 to play a strange mid-fi mix of synthpop, post-punk and indie rock that gained them a single on local label Shifty Disco. "Simple", released in August 1997, was an 8-minute droning partly-spoken epic that gained gushing reviews and comparisons to Stereolab, Cabaret Voltaire and Arab Strap. The band were hotly-hyped around the time of BBC Radio 1's 1997 "Sound City" week in Oxford, but their awkward and uncertain live shows (where the band had slides projected over them rather than engage with the audience), together with a move towards more electronic, programmed sounds, seemed to confuse their media supporters. The hype moved elsewhere.

By the time the band released their 2000 debut album "Stillpoint Primer" on the Shinkansen label, they had moved towards an eclectic mix of shoegazing, Daft Punk rhythms, post-rock electronica, and jangling indie-pop, with lyrical themes that ranged from the overtly political to the opaquely arcane. "My Bloody Valentine meets Tortoise" was a typical reaction.

Cody were now recording their music at home and mailing their contributions to one another, which made it less of an issue when the members began to leave Oxford (and, in one case, leave the UK altogether). But this made promotion of their second album, 2002's "Distance Learning", somewhat difficult. The album was their best work - with more confident and memorable songs, and complex arrangements sometimes reminiscent of New Order, Boards Of Canada and Steely Dan (!). Its lack of success eventually led to Cody calling it a day in early 2004 when recordings for a proposed third album began to fizzle out. A sad end for a band who found it hard to fit in in their day, but whose shoetronic sound has many contemporary echoes.
