1) Biography by Steve Huey
Chicago power pop band Green was formed in the mid-’80s by guitarist/singer/songwriter Jeff Lescher, whose influences included the Kinks, T. Rex, and soul music. Although such albums as Green (1986) and Elaine MacKenzie (1988) were fairly popular in Holland and Belgium, Green never had much exposure in their home country. 1991’s White Soul marked a peak in songwriting, although its unfocused 1992 follow-up, The Pop Tarts, was half power pop and half grunge in an unsuccessful attempt to gain a wider audience. On The Pop Tarts bass player Ken Kurson (who is responsible for four songs spread out over Elaine MacKenzie and White Soul) was replaced by Clay Tomasek, who also wrote songs for the band. After the three-song Le Pathetique EP in 1993, the band fell silent for a while.
In 1998 the album Green 5 was released, followed in 2001 by Eau de Vie, which was recorded in France. Since then the band has been inactive most of the time, and in 2009 the album The Planets was released on their own Gang Green record label. A European tour is reportedly scheduled for the second half of 2011.
