RIBEYE BROTHERS • HAPPY CHICHESTER
Painted Doll came to life when "a death metal guy and a power-pop guy got hammered together at a Goblin concert in Texas." Soon after, Chris Reifert (Autopsy, Death, Abscess) and Dave Hill (Valley Lodge, Walter Schreifels Band, Cobra Verde) began trying to out-deep cut each other with late '60s/early '70s Dutch and British psych-pop, before Chris suggested the two musicians form a band together inspired by the music they'd been trading.
The Ribeye Brothers were formed by Tim Cronin and Jon Kleiman immediately following The Teapot Dome scandal, but broke up soon afterward when someone pointed out that neither Mr. Cronin or Kleiman had been born yet. The band reformed sometime in the early 1990's to fill a niche in popular music they felt wasn't being adequately addressed, namely, unpopular music.
Happy Chichester is a singer-songwriter,-multi-instrumentalist, and producer from Columbus, OH. An original founding member of Royal Crescent Mob, Howlin' Maggie, and Twilight Singers, he has amassed an impressive discography on a wide range of independent and major labels, including the legendary Sire Records, Columbia, and Elektra.
