Lucid Nation's creations expose fierce streams of experimentalism within the rock genre by captioning a singular set of conceptual alternative pop/rock style, somehow following a similar trail as the one unclosed by Sonic Youth or Pere Ubu. Nation formed in Los Angeles in 1994, and since then, its lineup has continually been changing. Their singular work soon justified their picking as opening act for crews such as Joan of Arc or Bikini Kill. In 1997, they presented their first album, The Stillness of Over, and succeeded in proving their unequaled and crafty sound fusions. American Stonehenge showed up as their second full-length in 1998, before 2000's DNA. Since then, the California ensemble has managed to keep the same elements, embodied by Tamra Spivey (vocals, guitar), Tia Sprocket (drums), Grit Maldonado (bass), Ronnie Pontiac (guitar, bass), and Danette Lee (guitar). It was with this same outfit that they recorded what turned out to be their fourth album, Suburban Legends, which hit record stores in 2001. A complete overhaul of the lineup occurred after this, leaving only Spivey and Pontiac but adding bassist Greta Brinkman, guitarist Larry Schemel, percussionist Kayla Tabb, keyboardist Diane Naegel, and former Hole drummer Patty Schemel. The first album with this version of the group was 2002's double album, Tacoma Ballet. ~ Mario Mesquita BorgesPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
