Biography

The Lupins, formed in 1990 by Stoley (Stoley P.T.), Lance Tawzer (fmr. Material Issue), Johnny “Beitr” Furman (the Cells) and Jay Rayjeck (TRS-80) on the campus of Elmhurst College near Chicago. Later joined by guitarist Jaison “Blast” Chasko (Suffrajett). They recorded their first demos with Jeff Murphy (Shoes, Material Issue) at Short Order Recorder in Zion, IL. The Lupins played small clubs and local college gigs until meeting up with the Drovers. The Drovers took them under their wing and gave them gigs as an opening act on their regional tours. The Lupins recorded their debut album “Slob” (w/ cover art by their friend Liz Phair) on the Drovers’ Tantrum Records in 1993. It was recorded at Chicago Trax and many “Drovers” musicians contributed to the making of the record. The Lupins began to gain momentum and rose to the top of the Chicago club scene. In 1994, The Lupins attracted the attention of many labels, but no one more so than RCA Records. The Lupins signed a multi-album deal with RCA and recorded their major-label debut “Queenie 8” with Producer, Nick Launay (Killing Joke, Midnight Oil, INXS, Gang of Four, Silverchair). The album was recorded at Chicago Trax and mixed at One On One Studios in Los Angeles. Prior to the release of Quieenie 8, the Lupins recorded a single “Peach” on Maddawg Records. The Lupins toured colleges and supported artists such as Bush, Filter, Everclear and the Toadies.
