The punk rock duo were joined by Jennifer Finch on bass guitar and Roy Koutsky on drums, Koutsky left shortly after and was briefly replaced by Anne Anderson in 1988. After Anderson quit the band, Demetra “Dee” Plakas became the permanent drummer. Their 1992 album Bricks Are Heavy, produced by Butch Vig, was featured in Rolling Stone’s 1999 list of “Essential Recordings of the 1990s”, and was their most successful release. The 1992 single, “Pretend We’re Dead” spent 13 weeks on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart, reached a high of #8 and made #21 in the UK Singles Chart. Their fourth album, Hungry For Stink, was released in the summer of 1994 and coincided with their appearance at Lollapalooza with other notable acts of the era such as The Smashing Pumpkins and The Breeders. Finch left the band during the recording of their next album. Sparks and Greta Brinkman played bass on The Beauty Process: Triple Platinum after which Gail Greenwood of Belly became the band’s full time bass player. The band appeared in John Waters’ 1994 film Serial Mom, under the name Camel Lips.

They have toured with and opened for artists including Bad Religion, GWAR, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Faith No More, Rollins Band, Beastie Boys, Pearl Jam, Marilyn Manson, the Offspring and Ministry. By 2001 the band stopped touring and they were on indefinite hiatus. They reunited in 2014, and toured Europe and North America in 2015.

    Biography

    Los Lobos, which is Spanish for The Wolves, is a rock band from East Los Angeles started by vocalist and guitarist David Hildago and drummer Louie Perez. Their music is influenced by rock n’ roll, Tex-Mex, country, zydeco, folk, R&B and blues. The two met while in high school and bonded over their mutual affection for obscure music such as Fairport Convention, Randy Newman and Ry Cooder. Unsatisfied playing only American Top 40 songs, they experimented with traditional Mexican music that they listened to as children. The band’s first noteworthy public appearance was in 1980 when they opened for Public Image Ltd. In Los Angeles. In 1983 they released their “And a Time To Dance” EP which was well received and sold enough to sustain their progress. In 1984 they released their first major label album, “How Will The Wolf Survive?” The ‘80s film, Colors, includes “One Time, One Night” in the opening credits but the song was not included on the soundtrack. In 1987 the band released their second full length album, “By The Light Of The Moon,” and in that same year recorded some Ritchie Valens covers for the soundtrack to the film La Bamba. The title track became a number one single and vaulted the band into international stardom. In the late 1980s and early 1990s they tour extensively throughout the world, opening for Bob Dylan, U2 and the Grateful Dead. The band and WB parted ways in in 1996 and they subsequently signed with Hollywood/Mammoth Records, releasing more studio albums way into the 2000s. More recently in 2011 the group was awarded the Latin Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2015 Los Lobos was nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame for the first time.

    Biography

    The Meters are an American funk band formed in 1965 by Zigaboo Modeliste (drums), George Porter Jr. (bass), Leo Nocentelli (guitar) and Art Neville (keyboards) in New Orleans, LA. The band performed and recorded their own music from the late 1960s until 1977 and played an influential role as backing musicians for other artists, including Lee Dorsey, Robert Palmer, Dr. John and Allen Toussaint. Their original compositions, “Cissy Strut,” and “Look-Ka Py Py” are considered funk classics. While they never enjoyed significant mainstream success, they are considered originators of funk along with artists like James Brown and their work is influential on many other bands, both their contemporaries and modern musicians. The band has been nominated four times for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, most recently in 2017. In 2018, they were presented the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. The Meters became the house band for Toussaint and his record label, Sansu Enterprises. In 1969 they released “Sophisticated Cissy,” and “Cissy Strut,” both major R&B chart hits. “Look-Ka Py Py” and “Chicken Strut” were their hits in 1970. In 1975 Paul McCartney invited the band to play at the release party for his Venus and Mars album aboard the Queen Mary ship in Long Beach, CA. Mick Jagger was in attendance and became a huge fan of their sound. The Rolling Stones invited the Meters to open for them on their Tour of the Americas 1975 and Tour of Europe 76 expeditions. After the Neville’s departed in 1977, David Batiste Sr. took over keyboard duties and Willie West joined as the new lead singer. Porter left the group in 1978 and by 1980 The Meters had officially broken up. Rejuvenation is the band’s fifth studio album and second for Reprise Records, originally released in 1974. In 2003, the album was ranked number 138 on Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time and was given 4 ½ stars by both Rolling Stone and All Music Guide. The album was produced by Allen Toussaint and recorded at his Sea-Saint Studios in New Orleans. Toussaint handled many of the horn arrangements on the record. The album’s influence is detectable in the work of a number of artists including Red Hot Chili Peppers, Public Enemy, Chris Duarte, Grateful Dead, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Widespread Panic. If voted to win, ROG will reissue this funk classic by cutting lacquers from the original analog tapes and half speed mastering the release. Then the LP will get the deluxe packaging treatment and be limited and numbered based on orders.
