is the 1994 Angelfish self-titled debut and single studio album released by Scottish alternative rock group Angelfish, fronted by Shirley Manson. The [2 ] Angelfish album was born out of necessity when Goodbye Mr. Mackenzie's record distributor MCA expressed interest in recording an album with Manson on lead vocals rather than furthering its commitment to the Mackenzies. The Mackenzies' record label boss Gary Kurfirst signed Manson as a solo artist, with the remaining Mackenzies performing as her backing band to circumvent the band's existing deal with MCA. [3 ]
Two single releases promoted the album, the first an
EP for " Suffocate Me" was released mid-1993, while the second, " Heartbreak to Hate", was released to radio at the time of the album's release. The [2 ] music video for "Suffocate Me" famously aired once by MTV during , where it was seen by 120 Minutes Garbage co-founder Steve Marker. Manson was asked to join Garbage, and accepted. [4 ] The Angelfish side-project was dissolved, while Goodbye Mr. Mackenzie continued on for another two years without Manson. [5 ] [2 ]
