I'm So Hollow was a post-punk band from Sheffield, England, active from 1978 to 1981. They were part of the Sheffield scene in England, alongside such bands as Clock DVA, Comsat Angels and Vice Versa.[1]

Line-up[edit]

The band's line-up was: Jane Wilson (vocals, keyboards), Rod Leigh (guitar), Gary Marsden (bass), and Yosef Sawicki (drums).

History[edit]

I'm So Hollow played their first gig opening for Clock DVA in Sheffield's Penthouse Club. Their highest profile gig was at the Leeds Futurama festival in 1980. They perform "Touch" in Eve Wood's documentary film Made in Sheffield (2001).

The band appeared on several compilations and recorded a John Peel session in 1980.[2] They released their first and only single "Dreams to Fill the Vacuum" in 1980, and, feeling they had achieved their ambitions with the recording of the album Emotion/Sound/Motion, split up shortly before its release in 1981.
