Biography

New York City, NY (1997 – present)

Mindless Self Indulgence (or MSI) are an American band that found its origin in New York City, NY in 1997. The current lineup is Jimmy Urine (vocals), Steve Righ? (guitar), Lyn-Z (bass) and Kitty (drums). Though considered , they are heavily influenced by , , , and . Intentionally iconoclastic, James Euringer (who uses the stage name Little Jimmy Urine) owes sartorial influence to the New York Dolls, wearing fishnet shirts at concerts, and is occasionally seen in shorts or pants with the inside cut out similar to how a skirt looks, and neon stockings.

Before starting the band Mindless Self Indulgence, james euringer launched a solo album in 1995, called Mindless Self-Indulgence, which he had produced by himself and was limited to 500 copies. Contrary to popular belief, this was not an album by the band Mindless Self Indulgence, however, Steve Righ? played guitar for the track “Bed of Roses”.

Another large influence in the band’s music comes from early 1980s culture. Frequently the music contains samples of early 80’s hip-hop or rock, as well as Atari-style beeps and tones. Their second album as a band, 1999’s Tight, was even allegedly mixed on Atari equipment. Many of Urine’s dress styles consist of the juxtaposition of popular 1980s clothing or bastardized versions thereof.

Later in 1999, MSI launched the album Frankenstein Girls Will Seem Strangely Sexy, featuring 30 tracks that were sorted alphabetically. Kitty (Drummer) designed and ran the official site of MSI when the album came out.
