Biography

New York, United States (1993 – present)

An band from New York, United States. Their music is a blend of many styles, most notably , and , and their songs deal with everyday life in New York: drugs, organized crime and politics. They are best known for their hit Scooby Snacks, which featured samples from films by Quentin Tarantino.

In their native US, they are regarded by some to be a one-hit wonder. However, the band gained a considerable following internationally, notably in northwest Europe, especially around the release of their first two albums in the late 90s.

Line-up

The band was formed in 1993 by Hugh Morgan (“Huey”, vocals, guitar), Brian Leiser (“Fast”, keyboards, bass, trumpet, harmonica) and Steve Borovini (“O”, drums).

In 1999, Borgovini left the band (after he, in the words of Huey: “went a little crazy and departed to Peru”) - finding later success with Needledrop (http://www.myspace.com/needledrop) and CC Jones(http://www.ccjonesandtheforgotten). He was replaced by Maxwell Jayson (“Mackie”). Mackie was then later replaced in 2003 by Mark (aka “Frank” or “The Rhythm Master”) from Leicester, UK, who had previously worked with the band as Mackie’s technician.
