100 Flowers
Born: Jan 1, 1981
Biography
Originally formed in the late '70s as an intentionally silly punk band called the Urinals, 100 Flowers organized a few years later (around vocalist John Talley-Jones and vocalist/guitarist Kjehl Johansen) with a sound more rooted in angular post-punk. Based in West Los Angeles, the band recorded a self-titled album for Happy Squid in 1983 and followed with an EP the next year, but disintegrated soon after. First Johansen and later Talley-Jones ended up in Trotsky Icepick later in the '80s. 100 Flowers' back catalog was rendered unnecessary with 1990's 100 Years of Pulchritude, a compilation including all of their released tracks plus several that weren't. ~ John Bush, Rovi
