History[edit]

Dave Allen (Gang of Four and Shriekback), Rick Boston and Jeff Ward founded the band in Los Angeles.[1] Rick Boston sang and played guitar, Dave Allen, founder of the record label World Domination Recordings, played bass and Jeff Ward was on drums.[2] Ward left the group after the recording of their debut album, On the Cross of Commerce. He committed suicide in 1993, dying of carbon monoxide poisoning.[3] He was replaced by Melle Steagal.[4] Jessy Greene of the Geraldine Fibbers contributed some violin. The soundtrack to the thriller The Harvest can be considered a Low Pop Suicide side project.
