Mother Hips

Formed in Chico, CA, in 1991, earthy pop jam rockers the Mother Hips moved up from bar band status through a series of regional tours and built a sizable fan base in California. Songwriter, vocalist, and guitarist Tim Bluhm, guitarist Greg Loiacono, bassist Isaac Parsons, and drummer Mike Wofchuck met in the dorms of Chico State in the early '90s. Loiacono and Bluhm's harmonies and country-tinged melodies honored California's musical past -- from Merle Haggard to the Beach Boys to Neil Young. Their 1992 album, entitled Back to the Grotto, caught the ear of American Recordings, which released 1995's Part-Timer Goes Full and 1996's Shootout. This relationship led to high-profile slots on tours with Johnny Cash, Wilco, and the H.O.R.D.E. tour. Drummer Wofchuck was replaced by John Hofer for 1998's country-rock Later Days. Three years later, the band released the more pop-oriented Green Hills of Earth. As soon as the album gained notoriety, singer/guitarist Greg Loiacono decided to take a break from the group, leaving the band's status in question. In 2005, Bluhm, Loiacono, Hofer, and new bassist Paul Hoaglin resumed playing music and released the Red Tandy EP on Camera Recordsin 2006 and followed it up with the full-length Kiss the Crystal Flake in early 2007. ~ Zac Johnson, Rovi

All you have to do is listen to lyrics like it's deciding when the last time that's the trouble, it's not over if you plan to try again on the track Precious Opal, and you get a glimpse into why they are a great rock band. Bless my dear friend Jim Hakes for turning me onto this band!

Great live shows and amazing songwriting. God bless the Mother Hips. Here's to 20+ more years!
I can never get enough of the Hips. See them live and get an even better sound. Tremendous talent. Put them on for long drives and you will feel as if they are singing to the sights your are seeing. Tim and Greg's harmony is so nice! I have been watching them create music since 1990, where in the off campus dorms of Chico State it all began. Not many bands have been making great music that long. I know the music will change you too.
I am from Maine after years in the Southwest US and have been turning everyone on to the Mother Hips. What a great band with unparalleled talent. Thank goodness for a band like this to come out of the 90's. We need the Mother Hips here in Maine and hope they make it here this summer. Thanks guys.

Every one of their albums is just such a great gem! You can't go wrong with The Hips, and their live show is a sturdy example of why Rock n Roll will never die!!
yeah Chico
Why doesn't the discography show "later days" or Back to the grotto"? oh, well, I guess anyone here would either know aboout it or go to motherhips.c o m to fiind more aboout this great band
Whenever I go to a show, I cannot help but dance during the entire set. I am a huge Hips fan. If you have not heard 'em, it would be worth your time to listen. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. These guys are accomplished musicians.

I remember seeing them in backyard parties in Chico around 90. Any word on what happened to Guitarist Erik Bell from the pre record deal days?
I love the instruments they incoporate into their music..esp. the piano...remi n d s me of playing..ahh h h miss my piano..roman t i c quality to their lyrics..give s me hope..makes me want to love
Right on. I lost my collection of Hips cassettes I had back in my Chico days some years ago. When I was in Grad school at UCR in 1998 I drove across Southern California to just see them in Santa Monica once.
everyone has good s**t to say about these guys...have to give 'em a listen.

these guys have a unique style that knocks down houses! Seen these guys too many times to count. Worth the time.
Watched these guys play in various barns and living rooms in high school. I loved them then and still do now. Awesome memories, awesome music!
LOVE the MH's. Also found them via Rock Band game. Red Tandy RULES!
Best Band Ever!!!!!
heard this song for the first time on my RockBand video game. AWESOME
has a good sound I'll have to listen to more
What a kick a** band of rock country blues melody with a twist of psychadelic sounds. One of the top 5 best out today imo. Its like a mix of the Beatles meet Neil Young & Crazy Horse with a touch of that Pink Floyd psychadilcy that is need'd for every great rock n' roll band. 10/10 :)
just a solid, consummate band!! If I could play music...it would sound like the Hips!! cheers!
Went to school in Chico when The Hips were playing all the time. Great live band to see. Make sure you get a chance to catch them.
