With their roots fi rmly planted in Detroit’s Cass Corridor punk rock and hardcore scene of the early
80s, John Brannon (Negative Approach) and Larissa Strickland (L-Seven), along with the locked in
rhythm section of Kevin Strickland and Jim Kimball, the Laughing Hyenas took it to a completely
different plane. Taking pointers from The Birthday Party and Funhouse era Stooges as well as
early blues and jazz artists, the Laughing Hyenas were a fi erce, sulfuric blast of noise. Kevin’s sinister
and hypnotic bass riffs and Jim’s tribal swing laid the perfect framework for Larissa’s (she only picked
up a guitar a couple months before the band was born) slicing, jagged, she might even be murdering
that thing guitar playing and John Brannon’s devilish howl.
The Hyenas travelled to Smart Studios in Wisconsin to record Merry Go Round, marking the start
of a creative partnership with producer/engineer Butch Vig that would result in three of the most
groundbreaking, game changing and scariest records to ever come out of Detroit...or anywhere.
