Bloodhound Gang


Biography of Bloodhound Gang

Bloodhound Gang

From King of Prussia, PA, the Bloodhound Gang hit the alternative charts in 1996 with a blend of obnoxious sexual innuendo and unpolitically correct stoner wit reminiscent of the early Beastie Boys -- mixing punk rock with hip-hop much as the Beasties had done. Frontman Jimmy Pop Ali and Lupus produced the band's first release, the 1994 Dingleberry Haze EP. A year later, the duo was signed to Columbia for their debut album, Use Your Fingers. After it flopped and Columbia dropped their contract, Ali and Lupus added bassist Evil Jared, drummer Spanky G and DJ Q-Ball for second LP One Fierce Beer Coaster. The Bloodhound Gang released the album in mid-1996 on the tiny Republic label, but moved back to a major label (DGC) later that year, thanks to MTV and alternative-radio airplay of the single "Fire Water Burn." The oft-delayed Hooray for Boobies followed in early 2000.
