Company Caine

Produced in Melbourne, Australia in 1970, this psychedelic/blues group centred around lyricist and vocalist Gulliver Smith (b. Kevin Smith) who acquired previously caused such clothes as Dr Kandy’s Third Eyesight and Period And The Forest Rose. Alongside Smith, Firm Caine (also known as Co Caine), the music group comprised; Russell Smith (b. Russell Kinross-Smith; electric guitar), John McInerney (drums), Arthur Eisenberg (bass) and Dave Kane (electric guitar). In hindsight, the music group had several exceptional songs, some normal, but with obscure lyrics – most noticeable within their debut one ‘Trixie Stonewells Wayward House For Young Females’ (1971) – but if the group completely deserves its afterwards cult status is certainly debatable. The music group was originally championed by way of a national magazine, Move Set, and its own columnist ‘Dr Pepper’. Firm Caine emerged in the past due 60s’ psychedelic period of concerts and drug-taking (arranged both in Melbourne and Sydney by US music group Nutwood Rug). The music group suffered from regular changes and improvements to the line-up which, but not seeming to adversely affect their high-energy white blues live shows, ultimately required their toll with the consequence of the music group dissolving in 1973. Gulliver continued to create the Poor Companions and Gulliver Smith AS WELL AS THE Dead End Children, while Russell caused Mighty Kong. Both Smiths re-formed in 1975 beneath the name of Metropolis before briefly time for the business Caine monicker. The re-formed music group was a very much steadier, solid affair but didn’t attract the eye of the sooner incarnation and quickly gave method to Gulliver’s next task, Little Gulliver.
