Biography

There are at least two artists which use this name:
1. Jellyfish, a power pop band from the United States
2. An alternate tag for JellyFish, a visual kei band from Indonesia

1.Jellyfish were a short-lived but highly influential band from San Francisco. The core members were drummer/singer/songwriter Andy Sturmer, keyboard player/multi-instrumentalist Roger Joseph Manning Jr., and guitarist/songwriter/vocalist Jason Falkner.

Sturmer and Roger Manning formed Jellyfish after the break-up of their previous band, Beatnik Beatch led by bassist / singer Chris Ketner. Prior to joining, Falkner had written and performed on songs from acclaimed Paisley Underground band The Three O’Clock’s major-label debut, Vermillion. Roger had met Falkner a while back even before Beatnik Beatch just looking for someone to jam with and Jason was the only person in the classifieds to mention XTC as a reference. Both found the meeting interesting but it ultimately amounted to nothing. In the search for a guitarist before Jellyfish recorded the final tracks Roger gave Jason a call.

Jellyfish released their debut album Bellybutton in 1990. The album contained the band’s biggest hit “Baby’s Coming Back” which peaked at No. 62 on Billboards Hot 100 Chart. As well as the singles “That Is Why”, “I Wanna Stay Home”, “Now She Knows She’s Wrong” and “The King Is Half-Undressed” (the video for which was nominated for Best Art Direction at the 1991 MTV Video Music Awards).
