WILD CARNATION Tricycle 1994


Artist Biography by

The pastoral pop band Wild Carnation was an outgrowth of the legendary Feelies. The group was led by singer/bassist Brenda Sauter, a longtime fixture of the Hoboken, NJ music scene whose tenures in local outfits like the Trypes and the Willies resulted in an offer to join the reformed Feelies in 1983; she remained with the group until their 1991 demise, concurrently moonlighting as a member of Speed the Plough. Sauter formed Wild Carnation in 1992 with her husband, guitarist Richard Barnes, and drummer Christopher O'Donovan (both members of Speed the Plough as well); after debuting with the single "Dodger Blue," the trio issued the rustic full-length Tricycle on the Delmore label in 1994.
