- The Mommyheads
Formed by singer Adam Elk in New York in 1987, when he and the other core members were still in high school, the Mommyheads made a mini-splash on the Lower East Side before relocating to San Francisco for the full flowering of their unique brand of experimental art pop. The group’s fourth album, 1995’s Bingham’s Hole, commonly cited as their masterpiece weaves together Frank Zappa, XTC, the Grateful Dead, Television, the Beatles, and other uncommon pairings. And, somehow, it all works.
