THE STORY OF CADILLAC BILL & THE CREEPING BENT
CADILLAC BILL is a long stemmed Texan weed from England. Creeping bent grass is also a long stemmed weed than grows throughout this planet. Together, they form a blend of psycho surf and “garage” rock ‘a’ Billy—oozing together, ala The Cramps and The B-52’s. The circus like stage show includes 18 feet of purple and red glittery backdrop, a chrome Cadillac emblem, 2 bubble machines,
fire, lights, smoke and action.
CADILLAC BILL (Boyd-Wilson) studied film at the U.C.L.A. and animation at Sheridan College. His first band was THE EDNA, MONA HOUSEWIFE DEATH BAND and lasted a creative but uneventful few years. In the late 80’s, Bill moved in with THE COWBOY JUNKIES and it was at this time that he put aside film making to tell stories via music. THE CREEPING BENT soon sprouted and by 1990 had bloomed, flowerlessly, into the long twisted weed that it now is. The CADILLAC BILL experience has become a polished stage show of talented and eccentric characters and possibly
the most enjoyable live fiascos in the Canada music scene.
C.B. & THE CREEPING BENT has toured Canada 6 times, opening for such acts as JUNK HOUSE, WEEN, THE HEADSTONES, WILD STRAWBERRIES, THE TUBES, RAY CONDO, TEENAGE HEAD, DREAD ZEPPELIN, BIG SUGAR, THE GRUESOMES and ALANNAH MYLES. The band were quarter finalists in the North by Northeast Internet Battle for the Bands and semi-finalists in CFNY’s Canadian Music Search. They also performed for the COCA National Showcase, resulting in many nationwide University shows. In 2007 Cadillac Bill’s album “Route 666” was nominated best album at the Hamilton Music Awards and was voted “best local band” and “best web site” by View Magazine. In Toronto, Eye Magazine honored Bill as being “Toronto’s Coolest Musician.” The band has been on the cover of View Magazine (3 times), Eye and Pulse.
Bill put his band on a hiatus from 2013 to 2017 to host and produced 60 episodes of THE CADILLAC BILL SHOW on Cable 14. Spoofed up public affair commentaries, talking to ghosts, UFO, dragon and alien discussions, woman’s roller derby, petting zoos, reptiles, Civil War reenactments, classic
car shows, a space alien called “ALLAN”, a C.B.S. drone, comedy commercials and paranormal investigations.
Burlesque dancers, wildlife investigations (with the C.B.S. Safari Expedition Team), “searching for dead bodies” (by PAUL THE DOWSER), “Wienerfest”, War of 1812 reenactment, a reporter in England, wrestling and seven episodes of a spoof of Downton Abbey using stuffed, taxidermied rats. Musical Guests have included TEENAGE HEAD, LORI YATES, TOM WILSON, GINGER ST. JAMES, GORDON LIGHTFOOT, RONNIE HAWKINS, DANIEL LANOIS, ANVIL and ROBERT GORDON.
Bill was nominated “Media Person of the Year” by Hamilton Music Awards for 2016 and was voted Hamilton’s favorite TV personality (for two years in a row). Extensive media coverage and daily airing of the show on Cable 14 and on Youtube has now elevated THE CADILLAC BILL SHOW to a cult TV classic.
THE CADILLAC BILL SHOW is distributed by PLANET BLUE PICTURES (out out Australia) and can now be seen on MUZU TV, Sony TV, Vimeo, Samsung TV, XBOX LIVE, AMAZON, Pivotshare, iTunes, Roku and SPBTV. The show is presently being translated into four languages.
