GREEN JELLÖ, the reformed American comedy heavy metal/punk rock group, has postponed the final two weeks' worth of dates on its comeback tour in order to hit the studio to record a new CD.
The band has vowed not to release the album through any record company. "Record companies take too much money for doing nothing," says Moronic Dictator. "You will only be able to buy it at shows or directly through our web site. We can do it ourselves... make all the cash to fund everything we need to do."
GREEN JELLÖ has rescheduled many of the dates for its fall tour which will be supported by fellow JELLÖ members' bands THE RADIOACTIVE CHICKEN HEADS, ROSEMARYS BILLYGOAT and MANDOWN.
GREEN JELLÖ came out of Los Angeles in the early '90s as a combination of metal, punk, satire and performance art. While the group was best known for its album "Cereal Killer" and cult hit "Three Little Pigs", it was also where future TOOL drummer Danny Carey and singer Maynard James Keenan first met. Carey spent five years with the group and told The Pulse of Radio what he remembered most about it. "At the time when I was playing with them, it was pretty rad," he said. "It was more of almost an X-rated vibe to it when we were just playing in clubs, you know, for older people. It was just controlled chaos in a lot of ways, and then once the record deal happened and stuff, you know, they were kind of freaking out on censorship issues and it turned into more of a kiddie vibe or something. It was an obvious choice for me to go with TOOL at that point."
