Luscious Jackson

Luscious Jackson members Jill Cunniff, Gabby Glaser and Kate Schellenbach met as young teens on the early 1980’s NYC music scene. As underagers sneaking into CBGB’s, Max’s Kansas City and other nightclubs, they were indoctrinated by the combined explosions of punk, new wave, dance and hip hop. Each weekend was an all night education that made it impossible to imagine making music that did not include as many genres as possible. The scene at this time was very small and included close friends the Beastie Boys. In 1991 Luscious Jackson sent a demo of three songs to the Beastie Boys, who decided to release the first Luscious Jackson EP “In Search Of Manny” on their new label Grand Royal Records. By this time, Luscious Jackson was a four member group that included Vivien Trimble on keyboards. The band went on to make four albums in the 1990’s and tour the world. They supported the Breeders, the Beastie Boys and REM. Luscious Jackson had a Top 40 radio hit with the song “Naked Eye” in 1996 off of their certified Gold album “Fever In, Fever Out” produced by Daniel Lanois. Tours included Lollapalooza and Lillith Fair. In 1999, after the departure of Trimble, the band released their final 1990’s album “Electric Honey”. In 2000, the group amicably disbanded to pursue other things, including starting families and careers in different fields. Now parents, Kate, Gabby and Jill are back with a new Luscious Jackson album called “Magic Hour” releasing in the Fall of 2013 on their own label City Song. They are currently booking select concert dates.
