(Vocal/instrumental group, 1988–present)

This American band formed in New York, comprising Chris Barron (vocals), Eric Schenkman (guitar), Mark White (bass) and Aaron Comess (drums). Their good-time blend of blues rock in Phish/Blues Traveler vein was pleasant without appearing to threaten the charts. Debut album Pocket Full Of Kryptonite (1991) sold steadily due to hard touring, although when MTV picked up on ‘Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong’ sales went through the roof. Subsequent albums proved inessential.
