Ethyl Meatplow was a short-lived, yet enormously accomplished, pseudo-industrial alternative/dance-rock outfit comprised of vocalist Carla Bozulich, guitarist Biff Barefoot Sanders, and drummer John Napier. Formed circa 1990, the group released three independent singles before their only album, 1993's Happy Days Sweetheart. The group earned a reputation for their live shows, which combined samples and electronics with live instrumentation. Happy Days Sweetheart earned good reviews in alternative/underground magazines yet the band spilt soon after its release. Bozulich became the vocalist for the pseudo-country-rock group the Geraldine Fibbers; she also sang on ex-Minutemen/fIREHOSE bassist Mike Watt's 1995 solo debut, Ball-hog or Tugboat?. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
