Biography

Fetchin’ Bones were a punk/funk/metal/alternative rock band from Charlotte, NC, primarily active in the mid to late ’80s. Fronted by wild woman Hope Nicholls, who went on to form Sugarsmack, the band were college radio staples in the ’80s and toured extensively, especially in the American Southeast. Defying categories, yet with a strong current of Southern rock, mixed with punk sensibilities and occasional funk touches, the band’s sound was a good time party sountrack for many. The band never broke through into the mainstream, despite their best efforts. Their final album, Monster, anticipated the sort of fusion of genres pioneered by bands like Jane’s Addiction and the Red Hot Chili Peppers just months later. That album was arguably a misstep, moving away from the raw punk urgency of earlier releases.

The band also included bassist Danna Pentes, guitarists Aaron Pitkin, Gary White, and later, Errol Stewart, as well as drummers Marc Mueller, later replaced by Clay Richardson.

Albums included 1985’s Cabin Flounder, 1986’s Bad Pumpkin, 1987’s Galaxy 500 and 1989’s Monster.
