Artist Biography

by Ed Nimmervoll

Australian punk/grunge/funk band Grinspoon hail from the North Coast of the State of New South Wales, an area noted for attracting an alternate lifestyle community to its rural seaside setting. Guitarist Pat Davern and bassist Joe Hansen met vocalist Phil Jamieson and drummer Kris Hopes in 1995 on jam night at the main hotel in Lismore, the major town in the area. They decided to form a band specifically to enter a national competition looking to unearth new music. The contest was the first of its kind being run by the government-funded national youth radio network, Triple J. They won the competition with "Sickfest," the first song the band had ever written. The name Grinspoon comes from pro- marijuana activist Dr. Lester Grinspoon.

On the back of their Triple J success Grinspoon began touring and recorded a self financed five track CD "Licker Bottle Cozy" in July 1996. They were then signed to MCA 's Australian subsidiary Grunge, recording another EP before the September 97 release of the band's first album Guide To Better Living, named after a Sunbeam booklet of whitegoods from the 60's. They insisted on recording their album locally in Byron Bay rather than heading for a big city studio. The album reached #3, spent 26 weeks on the national charts, achieved double platinum status, and generating a number of hit singles. After extensively supporting the American release of Guide To Better Living with live performances, the band re-entered the studios in Sydney with expatriate American producer Jonathan Burnside (Nirvana, Melvins) to record the second album Easy, released in November 1999.

The group's style is variously described as Helmet meets Bush, or going from Helter Skelter type Beatles and Radio Birdman, to Fugazi and Ween.

ED HALL La La Land 1995

 


Discogs

 

Saw Ed Hall play in my city back in the '90s. During their set, they asked the audience who in the band was named Ed Hall. I yelled back, "No one!" They proceeded to toss me their Deth 7 inch.

The band is composed of Gary Chester, guitarist, Larry Strub, bassist, and Kevin Whitley, drummer in the first three albums. Their style is a mix of post hardcore, psychedelic rock and hardcore, a sound sometimes similar to Butthole Surfers. Maybe for this reason from 1991 to 1995 they record their lps on Trance Syndicate Records, independent record label founded in 1990 by King Coffey, drummer of Butthole Surfers. The band split in 1996.

Artist Biography

by Andy Kellman

The big-mouthed/well-coifed frontman of Liverpool's Echo & the Bunnymen, Ian McCulloch got his start with Pete Wylie and Julian Cope as the Crucial Three. This band lasted just over a month; Wylie and Cope bounced around in a couple of bands, with Wylie eventually starting Wah! and Cope forming the Teardrop Explodes. McCulloch formed Echo & the Bunnymen with Will Sergeant in 1978, who went on to become one of England's most successful and important pop bands throughout the '80s. McCulloch left the band in late 1988 to pursue a solo career. 1989's atmospheric Candleland stood up to his band's best work and was quite successful in the U.K., reaching the Top 20. 1992's Mysterio wasn't as strong, failing to do as well on the charts. During the tail-end of the '80s and the early '90s, McCulloch shut himself out from the rest of the world, staying in his Liverpool house and helping raise his two daughters. The combination of a frenzied lifestyle and the death of his father were enough to make him take a few steps back and virtually disappear from the public eye for several years. Around 1994, McCulloch patched up his friendship with Sergeant. Under the name Electrafixion, the duo added a rhythm section and released 1995's Burned, which scored the band a couple of minor hits on alternative radio in the U.S. Echo bassist Les Pattinson entered the picture, and the trio decided to record again as Echo & the Bunnymen. 1997's Evergreen, 1999's What Are You Going to Do with Your Life, and 2001's Flowers were each received positively in the press, if not quite living up to the high standard of the group's original incarnation. 2001 proved to be a busy year for McCulloch, who toured with the Bunnymen and inked a solo deal with U.K. indie Jeepster. Rhino also issued a four-CD box set of Echo & the Bunnymen material, entitled Crystal Days. Nearly 11 years after his last solo effort, McCulloch returned with Slideling in spring 2003. The album was released on Echo & the Bunnymen's stateside label spinART and featured collaborations with Coldplay's Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland, and actor John Simm (24 Hour Party People). In 2013, McCulloch delivered the fan-funded studio album, Pro Patria Mori, and the concert album, Live at Liverpool Anglican Cathedral. Both albums were also released as a double-package titled, Holy Ghosts.

Artist Biography

by Mike DaRonco

Sydney, Australia's Asteroid B-612 take on a grittier, straight forward approach of rock 'n' roll in the vein of The Stooges, Blue Oyster Cult and The New York Dolls. On top of their added approach of angst and speed, Asteroid B-612 made their recording debut in 1996 with the EP Teen Sublimation Riffs. The following year, Au-Go-Go Records released their first full-length Not Meant For This World, as well as their second EP September Crush.

Artist Biography

by Mike DaRonco

Upon the demise of the Sydney indie outfit Front End Loader, bassist Richard Corey and drummer Peter Kostic got together with former You Am I guitarist Greg Hitchcock and former Kryptonics front man Ian Underwood in 1994. Assembled as the power-pop outfit Challenger 7, the group released a six song EP immediately recorded even before the group even played their first show. But after only three gigs, Underwood remained as the only original member once the rest of the band departed. With drummer Marty Doo and bassist Dan Bell joining Challenger 7's ranks, the 1995 EP, Morris, was finally released with critical comparisons to Husker Du and The Replacements. Following the 1997 recruitment of former Asteroid B612 guitarist Stewie Cunningham, Challenger 7's follow-up EP, The Great Slump Forward, came out that same year.

PARK Scene 14 1998

 


Discogs

 

Artist Biography

by Corey Apar

Indie rock outfit Park can trace their roots to Springfield, IL, sometime in the '90s. However, lineup changes plagued the band, and by early 2006, Park was on their fourth incarnation of members. Boasting thoughtful lyrics over elements of post-hardcore, emo, and pop, the band was at times loosely described as a sonic cross between Alkaline Trio and Midtown. The band recorded the Random and Scattered EP in 1999, although by the record's 2000 release on Middle America Records, Park had broken up and re-formed with a different lineup. Original members vocalist/guitarist and primary songwriter Ladd Mitchell and guitarist Justin Valenti recruited drummer Miles Logan and bassist Tim Costello to complete the band. The EP ultimately brought Park to the attention of California's Lobster Records (the early home of Yellowcard) and they were subsequently signed.

Their label debut, No Signal, was produced by Cameron Webb (Lit, Social Distortion) and issued in October 2001. The band toured extensively behind the record over the next year, crossing the United States three times over. Returning to Illinois to start writing their next effort, Park struggled to find a new permanent bassist (Alex Haycraft ultimately got the gig) before eventually heading back to California in May 2003 to begin recording again with Webb. It Won't Snow Where You're Going appeared that November to positive critical and fan response, and once again, relentless touring commenced during 2004. Originally dubbed Building a Better Pirate, their highly anticipated third full-length was released in July 2006 with the more open-ended title Building a Better _____. It included a song ("Mississippi Burning") written about the October 2005 murder of Olamide Adeyooye, girlfriend of the Junior Varsity's Andy Wildrick. Valenti exited the group following the album's completion to go to medical school, and ex-Too Beautiful to Die guitarist Aaron Bickle signed on in his place. True to form, the band hit the road hard in support in the months after. However, in early February 2007, Mitchell quit the band for personal reasons, thus ending Park's run; the guys played their last show that May before packing it in.

FLUORESCEIN High Contrast Comedown 1997

 


Discogs

 

Artist Biography

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Featuring singer/guitarist Greg Mora, bassist Mark Higa, guitarist Joey Rubenstein and drummer Rocco Bidlovski, Fluorescein is a punk-pop quartet from the Silverlake area of Los Angeles, California. All four members were active on the local alternative rock scene before getting together in the mid-'90s. Mora was Lutefisk's bassist; Higa played in the Space Twins; Rubenstein played in 60 Cycle Hum; and Bidlovski was part of 100 Mona Lisas. The group's debut album, High Contrast Comedown, was comprised entirely of original material by Mora and was produced by Mora and Tracy Chilsholm. The record was released on No Name Recordings in January 1997. Over the course of 1997, the group promoted the record through constant touring. By the end of the year, "Cathy's On Crank!" became a hit on modern rock stations in several major markets. The group's burgeoning success attracted major labels, and DGC Records signed the band by the end of the year. High Contrast Comedown was reissued by DGC in January of 1998.
