Featuring singer/guitarist Greg Mora, bassist Mark Higa, guitarist Joey Rubenstein and drummer Rocco Bidlovski, Fluorescein is a punk-pop quartet from the Silverlake area of Los Angeles, California. All four members were active on the local alternative rock scene before getting together in the mid-'90s. Mora was Lutefisk's bassist; Higa played in the Space Twins; Rubenstein played in 60 Cycle Hum; and Bidlovski was part of 100 Mona Lisas. The group's debut album, High Contrast Comedown, was comprised entirely of original material by Mora and was produced by Mora and Tracy Chilsholm. The record was released on No Name Recordings in January 1997. Over the course of 1997, the group promoted the record through constant touring. By the end of the year, "Cathy's On Crank!" became a hit on modern rock stations in several major markets. The group's burgeoning success attracted major labels, and DGC Records signed the band by the end of the year. High Contrast Comedown was reissued by DGC in January of 1998. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
