I guess near ten or maybe longer I remember being big time into Jellyfish. I might have
considered them my favorite band. I was wondering if any of the members joined other
other bands but I guess not. I heard NEW RADICALS about 3 years ago and thought
they sound a lot like Jellyfish. Anyway where are these guys?

A couple of the members formed a band called Imperial Drag after they broke up.

Jellyfish were years before their time. they had the chops to prove it.
they are the best band since queen

Roger Manning Jnr from Jellyfish now plays keyboards for Beck, and the guitarist from Spilt Milk went on to be the singer from Slash's Snakepit. Fuck knows what happened to Andy Sturmer though, that man is a genius.....

Another great band that had so much potential and broke up. Saw them in concert they were fantastic! The Imperial Drag album is good but then they broke up. Keep searching for great bands no one ever hears of.

I'm a Slash fan, just trying to trace Eric Dover back to where he came from and check out some of his other shit. He fucking rocks on the Snakepit album. This is his first band right? JellyFish? Watever, Slash and Eddie Van Halen are the badest motherfuckers in the world, end of story.
Rock & Roll,

Jason Falkner was a member of 3 O'Clock for one album before Jellyfish... then went on to cut one album with The Grays (a must have) and two solo albums (also must haves). Roger Manning pops up all over the place, lately with Beck. Andy Sturmer has been listed as "godfather" on albums by the Japanese pop duo Puffy Ami Yumi, for producing and cowriting... By the way, the label Not Lame from Colorado has released a Jellyfish 4-disc set called "Fan Club" that collects demos, outtakes & live shit... pretty awesome package for the hardcore fan, but it may be out of print.

I saw them live, up close and personal in Fells Point - February 1991. They were with a band called Maggie's Dream. They were tight!! Bellybutton is one of my all time favorite albums.
I never bought Spilt Milk. Is it any good?
>>By Mellen23 (Wednesday, 21 May 2003 20:27)
Spilt Milk is a masterpiece. And the Fan club box set is fantastic too, the live acoustic tracks show off just how talented these fellas are.
>>By Dozza (Thursday, 22 May 2003 10:08)
One of the best bands never to be massive .awesome muscians.wonderful vocals killer albums but most music public to dumb to realise such talent.....
>>By Beatlebum (Friday, 30 May 2003 23:29)
I am still in mourning for Jellyfish. I know every song by heart, my husband (boyfriend at the time) and I practically wore the disc out... Glad to see that there are others out there who knew a phenomenon when they heard them....
I MUST get the Fan Club CD!
>>By Roobee (Monday, 2 Jun 2003 18:41)
Simply said, they were the greatest band to never get famous.....they are the forefathers of todays punk....they were too good to get famous, which would explain why there so much crap thats famous today...6-03
ps...Spilt Milk is a masterpiece!
>>By thatsafry (Tuesday, 10 Jun 2003 01:22)
just got the new Rooney CD. They're from LA and have a very similar sound.
>>By nycscot (Sunday, 15 Jun 2003 20:16)
I would have to disagree with thatsafry. Jellyfish has nothing to do with with the pathetic state of kiddie punk that's out there now. I first saw JF (without ever hearing about them before) open up for World Party in Toronto in '91. I was blown away by the songwriting and their whole presence. Being a fan of 70's pop among other things, I was totally blown away when the stated the show with Live and Let Die.
I can't even remember how World party (my fave band at the time) played but I'll never forget Jellyfish that night.
Spilt Milk is Queen, Abba, Frank Zappa, ELO and The Beatles on steroids rolled into one. You owe it to yourself to find it. Much like Fishbone, Jellyfish were ahead of it's time waiting for the rest of the world to catch up. Thank god Fishbone's still to this day making excellent music for those who won't accept mediocrity.
p.s. Jason Faulkner's (original JF lead guitarist) solo records are fantastic.

Listening to Jellyfish breaks my heart. These guys really did something no other band did - I'm not sure what it is! They remind me a lot of Queen in a way, I hope that doesn't piss anyone off. Whoa I just read that last message and dude said the same thing! God it really does break my heart. Is there no justice in this world? Have you guys seen that video where they are eating in the McDonalds?
>>By Wilcofan (Monday, 23 Jun 2003 17:58)
Andy Strumer has been producing and writing songs for the Japanese girl duo Puffy (known as “PuffyAmiYumi” in the states, you can thank Mr. Combs lawyer for the name change). Jellyfish fans may find the childish vocals a bit annoying, but otherwise it’s a fun blend of melodic punk and pop.
>>By Joe Blow (Tuesday, 24 Jun 2003 00:29)
Most bands that produce masterpieces such as Jellyfish's two studio releases usually end up being rather short-lived. I mean, can you imagine them releasing anything that could top those two? Anyone here heard of the Brit band Cardiacs? I'd be willing to bet that some out here would be floored by the. They have a page at MP3.com
>>By daveg (Friday, 27 Jun 2003 23:47)
anybody in the nyc area interested in forming a jellyfish tribute band????? email me at email@example.com ps i got dibs on the lead vocals!!!!
>>By sionxxii (Wednesday, 2 Jul 2003 01:47)
They were one of the top 5 bands ever, with Beatles, Queen, Ten CC and ELO, and they seem to have gone even farther in the richness of sound, voice arrangments, and the quality of music.
We still hope to see them together again. The world of music is missing much, and since them there's nothing happening.
Beatles were in the 60's, Queen in the 70's, and also Tenn CC, in the 80's it seems that we have a gap in the wonderful music hall. The 90's is only for Jellyfish.

Sweet Jesus I still listen to Jellyfish. Way too ahead of their retro time. They could have started...now and probably caught on. We were in SF at a party and I met Sara! THE SARA. Meeting people that are the main charachter in songs I've listened to for years is unexpectedly fucking cool! I had a quiet moment, collected myself, and drank like a jellyfish.
>>By Yomilky (Friday, 11 Jul 2003 06:40)
what happened to them? They rocked.
>>By angelfish (Wednesday, 16 Jul 2003 07:06)
What did Sara look like? Was she 'delicious beyond compare'?
>>By Calling Sara (Thursday, 17 Jul 2003 14:06)
I wore my Jellyfish tapes out when I was in high school. I just thought they were the very best bad! Geez!
Too bad they quit! I really would like Andy Sturmer to get back and do something man!!!
