Biography

Los Angeles, United States (1997 – 1999)

The New Radicals were an band formed in Los Angeles, California in 1997, centered around front man Gregg Alexander, who wrote and produced all of their songs. Aside from Alexander, the only other permanent member of the band was keyboardist and former child actress Danielle Brisebois. The remainder of the line up was a fluctuating one revolving around the two of them. They released only one album, 1998’s Maybe You’ve Been Brainwashed Too, a pop rock album heavily influenced by 1970s’ rock and soul, containing—amongst radio-friendly modern rock tracks and love songs—strong criticism of Corporate America.

The band is best known for their debut single “You Get What You Give”, which became a top 5 hit in the United Kingdom and whose celebrity-dissing lyrics at the end of the song provided a minor media spectacle.

Tired of touring and promotional interviews, Alexander disbanded the group in mid 1999, before the release of their second single, “Someday We’ll Know”, to focus on writing and producing songs for other artists. Consequently the stunning “Someday We’ll Know” received little attention in most countries and the band is widely considered a one-hit wonder.
