Belly

Following several years in Throwing Muses, as well as a brief detour in the Breeders in 1990, Tanya Donelly formed her own band, Belly, in 1992. With Belly, Donelly expanded her dreamy pop hooks into more concise, catchy songs, as well as harder-edged rock. The band's 1993 debut, Star, became one of the first beneficiaries of the commercialization of alternative rock; it rode to gold status within its first year of release, as "Feed the Tree" made headway on mainstream pop radio. Despite their strong start, Belly never became genuine stars, and once their 1995 follow-up, King, bombed, Donelly disbanded the group.

Donelly (vocals, guitar) broke away from Throwing Muses in late 1991, forming Belly with fellow ex-Muse Fred Abong (bass), drummer Chris Gorman, and his guitarist brother Tom. Donelly hired Pixies producer Gil Norton to work on the group's debut EP, Slow Dust, which confirmed that her dream pop sensibilities had more hooks than many of her peers. Slow Dust reached number one on the British indie charts in early 1992, and two other EPs followed that year, generating strong word of mouth. Belly's debut album, Star, was released in February of 1993 to strong reviews, and its first single, "Feed the Tree," reached the U.K. Top 40, helping the album enter the British charts at number two. Shortly afterward, the single became a crossover hit in the U.S. The band added Gail Greenwood as bassist -- Abong left the band during the recording of Star -- that spring, and spent the remainder of 1993 on tour, helping send the album to gold status in America.

During 1994, Belly recorded their second album with classic rock producer Glyn Johns. The resulting record, King, was more rock-oriented than its predecessor, partially because of Johns' work and partially because of Greenwood, who was a harder rocker than Donelly. King was expected to be Belly's breakthrough into the mainstream, yet was greeted with mixed reviews upon its spring release and quickly fell off the charts. In the wake of its failure, Donelly disbanded Belly in 1996, releasing her first solo EP, Sliding and Diving, at the end of the year. Greenwood joined L7 by the end of the year. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Belly sealed my fate....:-)
Strange the way things went with Belly considering that King was far superior to Star. In hindsight, everyone sees that now but I guess it take time to appreciate real musical quality.
so love belly always have one of those little gems not a whole lot of people who listened to alternative knew about but man they really got into your head and I will always love em for that.
I always find it interesting that King wasn't as well received, as I love it so much more than Star! However, am I big fan of Tanya Donelly's solo work as well,oh well thats just me.

The band put out some other "EP"s and special stuff, like music in the film "Twister", a Tom Jones cover, and a Jossy and the P**sy cats cover from the 70's cartoon; part of a album full of covers of cartoon theme songs. Some import B-sides also are not part of the two main albums.

The band broke up due to mis-manageme n t by their manager who thought the magic was Tanya and not the whole band. They also were on tour non-stop for almost two years which put a huge strain on the whole group.
i love both. i find them hard not to love with every song.
the true shame is that King doesn't even compare to Star
It's a shame they only made 2 albums :(
wouldn't necessarily take the above as gospel. Don't believe Belly was ever seeking mainstream success....a n d am pretty sure that King's failure was not the reason for their breakup. but the revisionists will see it their way.

it was SLOW DOG
i wish they'd kept making good music instead of worrying about the charts... but... i'm happy with these 2 albums not sure i'd want more than these 2...
Good stuff, but L7 kicks a**, so I can understand

I love the same style and vocals as Hope Sandoval. It would be great for the two to get together on a album. I would be one of the first to buy one.
