Biography

Los Angeles, CA, USA (1995 – present)

Crazy Town is a hip-hop/rock band formed in Los Angeles, CA, USA in 1995 by Bret Mazur and Seth Binzer. The band is best known for their 2001 single, “Butterfly”, which reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Members of the band mix elements of hip-hop and rock but are mainly alternative hip-hop. As a group, they have released two studio albums, The Gift of Game and Darkhorse. Their debut album was certified Platinum by the RIAA.

The band did not start until 1995. Around that time Mazur and Binzer, who go by the names of “Epic” and “Shifty Shellshock” respectively, started collaborating together. However they did not become serious about releasing any material until much later. By early 1999, Crazy Town consisted of Mazur, Binzer, Rust Epique, James Bradley Jr., Doug Miller (aka Faydoe Deelay, Adam Goldstein (aka DJ AM), and Antonio Lorenzo “Trouble” Valli. Their début album, The Gift of Game, was released in November 1999, having been recorded earlier that year.

The bands first album The Gift of Game and there well known single “Butterfly” was followed by a tour support slot for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Guitarist Rust Epique left the band while the album was being mixed, and Crazy Town was joined by Kraig Tyler shortly after. The first two singles from The Gift of Game, “Toxic” and “Darkside”, were released but failed to chart.
