Biography

Wayne, New Jersey, United States (1982 – 1994, 2003 – present)

Dramarama is an alternative rock group which formed in 1982 in Wayne, New Jersey, United States, although they relocated to Los Angeles, California sometime later. Throughout all their incarnations, the band was led by singer/songwriter John Easdale. The band was best known for their 1985 single “Anything, Anything (I’ll Give You)” which remains the most requested song in the history of the legendary L.A. alternative station KROQ. The band split in 1994 and reformed in 2003 after the original lineup was reunited on the VH1 show “Bands Reunited”. Although they only had to play one concert for that show, the band enjoyed playing together again so much that shortly thereafter they officially reunited, releasing their first album in 12 years, “Everybody Dies” in 2005.

Since 1996, an evolving lineup of the band, always fronted by singer/songwriter John Easdale, has been performing in one incarnation or another (initially billed as Easdale solo but usually with assistance from former band mates), and from then until 2003 played occasional shows in the L.A. area, as well as in New Jersey. However, amid renewed interest since the Bands Reunited episode in January 2004 and a large-scale appearance at KROQ-FM’s annual Inland Invasion festival concert (attended by more than 78,000 fans) in September 2003, Dramarama has been touring nationally in 2004 and 2005, and released their first new, full-length studio CD, titled “everybody dies,” on October 25, 2005.

    Their 'Hi-Fi Sci-Fi' album is a great mix of Tom Petty-esque garage rock and power pop. Everyone should check it out!

    I remember buying "Box Office Bomb" and really enjoying it. It was hard to find their albums at the time even though 120 Minutes was playing Anything Anything.
