MIGHTY JOE PLUM - Aardvark - CD - BRAND NEW/STILL SEALED - RARE. The 5-piece band AARDVARK' - which debuted in 2000 with an album I have never seen anywhere - were quite obscure during their existence, nor are the members' names familiar to me from other connections. The music is mostly instrumental, and it has a retro sound with organ and electric + acoustic guitars, and often a very tasty bass as Evolver points out. One could be fooled to believe this was released in mid-70's when bands like TABULA RASA, FANTASIA, NOVA, NIMBUS and KAAMOS were carrying the slowly dying torch of Finnish progressive rock
Tampa, Florida, United States. Mighty Joe Plum formed in Tampa, Florida in the mid-1990s. In their early career, they played in two Battle of the Bands competitions, the second of which they won. After developing a solid fan base in Central Florida, they recorded the "Aardvark" EP and toured in support of it. During this time radio stations picked up the song "Live Through This (Fifteen Stories)". The band signed to Atlantic Records in 1996 and released an album, The Happiest Dogs. The single "Live Through This" climbed to No. 6 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.
Playing the post-grunge blend of modern and classic rock that would come to dominate late 1990s rock, Mighty Joe Plum scored a minor hit with the single "Live Through This (Fifteen Stories)" in the summer of 1997. But unlike similar-sounding Matchbox 20 and Creed, the band never really caught on. Singer Brett Williams, guitarist Marlin Clark and drummer Mark Mercado met in Tampa Bay while in the sixth grade and jammed until they graduated from high school. The three reunited with bassist Davy Mason for a battle of the bands competition, which they lost. After an Orlando radio station first played "Live Through This," other Florida stations followed suit and the group returned to the studio to record an EP, Aardvark. In 1996, the band signed with Atlantic Records and recorded its only full-length album, The Happiest Dogs.
