The Presidents Of The United States Of America Biography

This Seattle Washington USA-based Alternative-Rock band was formed in early '90s by long-time friends Chris Ballew and Dave Dederer both sang and played altered instruments: two string basitar and three string guitbass respectively, the pair hooked-up with drummer Jason Finn and recorded their eponymous debut for indie Pop Llama Records, eventually the trio signed with Columbia and re-released their remastered debut in the spring of 1995, the record reached the #6 on The Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and allowed record sales to give the double-platinum certification; the first single "Lump" shot to #1 on Modern Rock chart followed by the top 20 hit "Kitty" and "Peaches" that peaked at #8 in the same chart. In late 1996 the group returned with their second effort which reached the #31 on The Billboard 200 chart and its single "Mach 5" peaked at #11 on Modern Rock chart. By late 1997 the band called it quits after lead singer Chris Ballew announced his departure, the next spring saw the release of "Pure Frosting" a collection of B-sides and other unreleased material including two cover-songs. But two years later The Presidents come back together and in September put out "Freaked Out And Small", the record surprisingly, missed the charts entirely. The band resurfaced in the summer 2004 with "Love Everybody".
