Luscious Jackson

Luscious Jackson was an alternative/pop-rock group formed in 1991.

They are named after now-retired American basketball player Lucious Jackson, whose name was mispronounced "luscious" during a sportscast.

The original band consisted of Jill Cunniff, Gabby Glaser (vocals, guitar), Kate Schellenbach and Vivian Trimble The band played nearly every instrument heard on their records, and with the exception of a few non-LP cover songs wrote all of their own material, the majority penned by vocalists Jill Cunniff and/or Gabby Glaser.

Between 1993 and 2000 they released one EP, three full length LPs and ten singles on the Beastie Boys' Grand Royal record label.

Their biggest hit-—and only Billboard Top 40 entry—-is "Naked Eye" .

Other notable singles include "Here", "CitySong ", "Under Your Skin" and "Ladyfingers".

Vivian Trimble left the group in 1998, and in 2000 (after releasing one album as a trio) the group officially announced the break up of Luscious Jackson.

February 2007 saw the release of Luscious Jackson's "greatest hits" compilation, and in the Fall of 2006 the band announced that they have reunited and are to begin work on a new children's album.
