Semisonic

After the breakup of Trip Shakespeare, Minneapolis natives Dan Wilson and John Munson teamed up with drummer Jacob Slichter to form Semisonic in 1993. Trip Shakespeare had spent years amassing a loyal audience with artistic harmonies and unexpected guitar counterpoints, but bandleader Dan Wilson took Semisonic in an entirely different direction, embracing a tightly crafted sound that proved to be more appetizing to mainstream audiences. "Closing Time" was the band's biggest hit, dominating the airwaves in 1998 and picking up a Grammy nomination the following year. Although Semisonic disbanded after the release of their third album, 2001's All About Chemistry, Wilson garnered additional accolades as a solo artist. He also co-wrote material with other groups, including the Dixie Chicks' Grammy-winning effort Taking the Long Way.

Given Trip Shakespeare's connections in the music industry, it didn't take long for Semisonic (which had initially formed under the name Pleasure) to secure a record deal with Elektra. Before the band could record, however, management reorganization at Elektra's headquarters resulted in the termination of Semisonic's contract. The band bounced back in 1995 by signing with MCA and releasing a self-produced EP, Pleasure. The Great Divide followed in 1996, marking Semisonic's full-length debut and garnering a favorable review from Rolling Stone, which deemed it "a record of simple but sparkling modern pop." However, it was the musicians' sophomore effort, Feeling Strangely Fine, that marked their major breakthrough in 1998. "Closing Time" topped the modern rock charts, "Secret Smile" became a Top 20 hit in the U.K., and Semisonic enjoyed a brief flash of megastardom as the millennium drew to a close.

All About Chemistry, the band's third album, was issued in early 2001 and yielded additional U.K. hits, but the record failed to maintain the group's popularity in America. Semisonic wrapped up the year by contributing "Over My Head" to the soundtrack for Summer Catch, a baseball-themed teen flick, and covering Wings' "Jet" for a Paul McCartney tribute CD entitled Listen to What the Man Said. Dan Wilson also took time out to lay the brickwork for his solo material, playing a slew of dates around the Midwest, while his brother Matt hooked up with John Munson to form the Flops. As these side projects mounted, Semisonic went on indefinite hiatus in late 2001. ~ Andrew Leahey & Steve Huey, Rovi

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed in the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you have started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works.
