Lippy's Garden was a post-punk band formed in 1984 in Glendora, California. The band consisted of David Milhous (drums and background vocals), his cousin Mark Bollinger (vocals and lead guitar), James Ross (keyboards), and Rob Salter (Bass). The four were nicknamed "Corn", "Milo", "Stuart", and "Raw", respectively. The group was produced by the son of famous television producer Marty Pasetta.
The band's sound incorporated funk, punk, and new wave. Their debut album was The Etiquette and Economics of Escape, which was first played on local Los Angeles radio stations, including KLOS and KROQ-FM -- the band got an early break by knocking on the studio door at KROQ-FM and handing a demo tape to independent DJRodney Bingenheimer. The group performed at almost every major club in Los Angeles county before disbanding in 1987.
