STILTSKIN The Mind's Eye 1994

Artist Biography by

Stiltskin was a short lived grunge rock quartet that lasted for only a single album, 1994's The Mind's Eye. Although they remain virtual unknowns in the U.S., the group scored a big hit in the U.K. with the track "Inside" (used at the time in a commercial for Levi's), which was criticized by many for being too similar to the Smashing Pumpkins -- Pumpkin leader Billy Corgan went as far as announcing from the stage at a 1994 show in Munich, "Hi, we're Stiltskin." The group broke up before a second album could be issued, as their singer, Ray Wilson, went on to replace Phil Collins in Genesis (appearing on the lukewarm received album Calling All Stations). Two years later, Wilson's new group, Cut, issued their debut album, Millionairehead.
