tripping daisy - piranha cd5 1995

here's another american band, an alternative rock quartet formed in 1990 hailed from texas..., dallas' very own tripping daisy. comprised of mark pirro, wes berggren, jeffrey bouck and frontman tim delaughter, were the original line up. "bill" the band's first full length album on indie label dragon street records received moderate airplay but a radio favorite in dallas(source, wikipedia.org) was described as neo-psychedelic rock due to heavy vocal fx and unconventional guitar riffs. jeff was replaced by bryan wakeland on drums following the release of there second album 'i am an elastic firecracker' in 1995, their first major label release. which bring us to this single, released under island records, unlike its predecessor, i got a girl... which peaked at number six on billboard mrt, "piranha" does not have that top forty sound that most mainstream ears are familiarized to. not hatin', just sayin'. in fact this song reminds me of the flaming lips' "she don't use jelly" back in 1993.
