Modern day power popsters Fuzzbubble immediately bring to mind such past masters as Cheap Trick, the Beatles, and even Nirvana, during Cobain and co's more melodic moments. The group (comprised of members Mark DiCarlo, Jim Bacchi, Jason Camiolo and Brett Rothfeld) first caused a splash during 1997, when rap mogul Sean Combs signed the group to his Bad Boy label - holding the honor of becoming one of the first non-hip hop artists to call the record company their home. The future looked bright for Fuzzbubble, as the group backed Combs on his 1997 hit, "It's All about the Benjamins," while two of their original songs were heard on both the big and little screen - "Out There" appeared on the Godzilla Motion Picture Soundtrack and "Ordinary" was featured on the TV show, Felicity. But their road to stardom soon became turbulent, as Fuzzbubble parted ways with the label come 2000. Undeterred, the band found a new home the same year with the Orchard label. The company issued their self-titled debut the same year, which was produced by Mike Clink, and featured guest appearances by Susanna Hoffs (ex-Bangles) and Roger Manning (ex-Jellyfish). 2002 saw the release of a compilation, Demos, Outtakes and Rarities.
