Whistler were a British indie band who released two albums on the Wiiija label.
Formed by Ian Dench after leaving EMF, the band consisted of Dench, Kerry Shaw (who had previously released a dance single through EMI called "Could This Be Love") and James Topham (who had previously played with Brian Eno).[1]
Both of the band's albums feature contributions from Tim Weller (of Grand Drive) and Fuzz Townshend.

Whistler gigged regularly around London in 1998-2000, including four concerts at The Water Rats in King's Cross. Each of these performances included a special cover version. Studio recordings of these were put together as the Intermission EP.
