By then, the sound of Liquid Hips had become more funk/groove oriented, and the lyrics became more pointedly political. The first track (Surveillance) of the band's 1993 debut album "Fool Injection" had been performed live since 1988. Not many recordings survive from the '80's, but the band performed at such NYC nightspots as: Danceteria, CBGB, Cat Club, Pyramid, Knitting Factory, B.A.D. Museum, SNAFU, Visiones, etc.
Liquid Hips was part of the first wave of bands to successfully meld deep funk with a hardcore/rap/metal edge. The main 1990's touring lineup was: John Mulkerin, (trumpet, vocals), Jeff McErlain and Bill Bickford (guitars) Kip Reed (bass) Kenny Martin (drums), Rob Reynolds (percussion). Liquid Hips toured Europe 5 times in the nineties, and opened shows for P-Funk, Public Enemy, The Freaky Fukin' Weirdoz, Blurt, and Ice-T. Read more on Last.fm.
