DESCRIPTION

The Gamma Rays played around New York a bunch in the early and mid-'90s, but only ever released a couple of singles. "Lovely" was one of them -- girl-group harmonies (they got compared to the Feminine Complex a few times, if I'm remembering correctly) with an extra-tough bass sound bumping it along.

BIOGRAPHY

The Gamma Rays played around New York a bunch in the early and mid-'90s, but only ever released a couple of singles. "Lovely" was one of them -- girl-group harmonies (they got compared to the Feminine Complex a few times, if I'm remembering correctly) with an extra-tough bass sound bumping it along. Sari Rubinstein, the singer, is now better known as one of the masterminds behind Rubulad, the greatest floating party spot in New York; she also fronts a very different sort of band called Music From the Mood Expansion Chamber, who are a little like the early Jesus & Mary Chain doing mantra meditation, and are well worth seeing. Concetta Kirschner, the bass player (who also wrote this song) is now better known as Princess Superstar. (Worth checking out from that page: the video for "Jam For the Ladies," her collaboration with Moby, MC Lyte and Angie Stone.)
