Hugo Largo was an American musical group known for their unique line-up: two bass guitars, a violin, and singer/performance artist Mimi Goese.
The band formed in 1984, initially featuring Tim Sommer and Goese. Later they were joined by Hahn Rowe and Adam Peacock, releasing an EP called Drum in 1988. (Michael Stipe produced the EP and also sings backing vocals on two tracks.) Drum was later reissued with additional material as an album on Brian Eno's label, Opal Records. The band's second album Mettle was released in 1989, first on Opal, then on All Saints Records.
Soon after the band disbanded, with Sommer joining Atlantic Records as a music executive and Goese pursuing a solo career.
