Luscious Jackson

With their dark hip-hop-influenced alternative rock, Luscious Jackson re-create the dense, multicultural bohemian world of New York in a collage of sound, where Spanish guitars, jazzy keyboards, funky beats, and breathy, singsong vocals combine into one. Like the Beastie Boys, Luscious Jackson's eclecticism doesn't acknowledge boundaries; instead, it takes freely from every kind of music. Luscious Jackson's first two recordings, 1992's In Search of Manny and 1994's Natural Ingredients, earned the band a cult following and positive critical reviews.

The core of Luscious Jackson -- Kate Schellenbach (drums), Jill Cunniff (vocals, bass), and Gabby Glaser (vocals, guitar) -- all met as teenagers on the New York post-punk scene of the early '80s. Schellenbach was the drummer in the original hardcore punk incarnation of the Beastie Boys; she met Cunniff when she interviewed the Beasties for her fanzine, The Decline of Art. Eventually, the trio began hanging out, seeing bands that ranged from hardcore and arty post-punk to reggae and hip-hop. When the members graduated from high school, they went their separate ways. Schellenbach stayed in New York, where she drummed with Hippies with Guns and attended college, while Cunniff and Glaser attended art school in San Francisco, where they both played in a punk band called Jaws; Cunniff continued to edit her fanzine.

In 1991, Cunniff and Glaser returned to New York and began writing songs. Eventually, the duo recruited Schellenbach and Jill's friend Vivian Trimble to form Luscious Jackson, taking their name from a '60s basketball player for the Philadelphia 76ers. The following year, the group released its debut EP, In Search of Manny, on the Beastie Boys' record label, Grand Royal; it was reissued the following year on Capitol/Grand Royal. In Search of Manny received very positive reviews and the group quickly became a hip name to drop in alternative rock circles.

Natural Ingredients, the group's first full-length album, was released in the late summer of 1994 to generally favorable reviews. "Citysong" became a minor modern rock hit in the fall of that year. Before the release of Natural Ingredients, Luscious Jackson spent the summer of 1994 on the second stage of Lollapalooza, per the request of the Beastie Boys. Following the release of Natural Ingredients, the group spent most of 1995 on the road, including a stint opening for R.E.M. on the Monster tour. Natural Ingredients eventually sold almost 200,000 copies.

Early in 1996, Trimble and Cunniff released a side project under the name Kostars. At the time, Luscious Jackson was continuing work on their second album, working with producer Daniel Lanois. The result, Fever In Fever Out, was released in fall 1996. Thanks to the single "Naked Eye," the album was a steady seller, expanding the band's fan base significantly even if it failed to become a huge hit. In April 1998, Trimble left the band to pursue other projects, including a solo album, a collaboration with Jon Spencer Blues Explosion drummer Russell Simins, and a band with Josephine Wiggs called Dusty Trails. Continuing on as a trio, Luscious Jackson returned in 1999 with Electric Honey before disbanding the following spring. In 2007, Capitol Records released Greatest Hits and bandmembers Jill Cunniff and Gabby Glaser each released solo albums in the same year. In 2011, the band announced that they were re-forming but founding member Vivian Trimble wouldn't be joining them. They released the previously unreleased track, "Girlscout," as a free download. The lead single "So Rock On" from their forthcoming fourth album, Magic Hour, premiered in September 2013. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Really surprised and disappointed that Pandora doesn't have Kostars - Klassics with a K. Great album from Luscious Jackson's Jill Cunniff & Vivian Trimble.
90s rule
Search for April's Pseudo Hardcore Fiefdom to tune into my first and favorite station, deep roots and an ecclectic mix of blow your doors off music!

Read Wiki and you'll know they're back together! Currently working on a new album sans Vivian. YEA! LUSCIOUS JACKSON!
This band was awesome. I had such a crush on Gabby! She gave me one of her picks at a show and i fell in love instantly
In search of Manny was great, Loved daughters of the kaos!

They are so awesome, I can't believe they are not together anymore. AND I just found out Jill is my neighbor! how cool is that! ;)

Luscious Jackson is dearly missed. Talk about an underrated, undervalued and unappreciate d band. Perfect for their time while still, even today, maintaining a timeless quality in sound, musicianship and a signature "too cool for words" vibe. Kate, Vivian, Gabby and Jill, your real fans miss you something awful. All the best of health, wealth and happiness!
I love the song, "Naked Eye". It's a tripee song to dance to when they put the strobe light on the dance floor!
i love luscious jackson - they are the soundtrack to my life - fever in fever out is an awesome record and natural ingredients is good as well but not as good as fever... i wish they never broke up! i love you gals!!
Lawl, I only knew 'Naked Eye'...

But, other then that obviously popular one hit, from what I've heard so far they're alright.
What??? NOTHING about "Ladies Who Lunch"? Not that I liked them, but I hate inaccurate reporting.
This song just makes me want to roll the car windows down and sing at the top of my lungs while the wind whips through my hair!
Good funky music!
