Light metal band founded in 1984 by Chicago native Chip Z'nuff. The self-titled debut album sold over a million (prompting Rolling Stone's David Wild to call them "One of the most exciting and gifted young bands on the scene today"), and they're still around, putting out a large amount of material on local indie labels -- most recently Paraphernalia (Stoney/Spitfire), which includes guest apparances by Rick Nielsen (Cheap Trick), James Young (Styx), and Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins). They've appeared on the David Letterman show several times, if that's any indication of quality!
Howard Stern says "These guys deserve rock superstar status." Chicago's mega shock-jock Mancow Muller agrees -- "For the record, my favorite band in Chicago." While we're in the quoting mood there's Cheap Trick's Rick Neilsen: "This band is full of piss and vinegar." and director Cameron Crowe (whose film Jerry McGuire the band's tune "Bring It On Home" appeared) : "I hail this band!"
New live (Enuff Znuff Live) and studio albums (Paraphernalia) join their extensive catalog, including their seventh album, aptly entitled Seven, and other recent releases Tweaked (Mayhem), and the collection of old, previously unreleased cuts Peach Fuzz (Big Deal/Caroline). Among the old stuff are 1985 (also Big Deal/Caroline), Animals with Human Intelligence (Arista).
Band members include Donnie Vie (vocals, guitar), Chip (bass,vocals), and new drummer Ricky Parent. Chip is also in a new supergroup called the Wild Bunch.
