Ferris - It Means Everything
In 1995 a group
of seven musicians from Orange County joined together to form
the "ska-swing-pop" band known as Save Ferris.
In the past two years they have gone from singing in their
garage to touring the U.S., selling over 30,000 copies of
their first album, Introducing Save Ferris, and winning
the Best Unsigned Band Award at the Grammy's. Even though
Save Ferris is mostly known throughout Southern California,
you could almost bet they are on their way to becoming known
Save Ferris was released in 1996 by Starpool Records.
The two songs that were released on radio were "The World
is New" and "Under 21." Although this album
was great, especially for a debut album, there were complaints
that is wasn't long enough: It had only 7 songs and was 18
minutes and 4 seconds. Now on their second album "It
Means Everything" there are 11 songs and it is 34 minutes
and 57 seconds. This album was released on September
9th. Save Ferris did a cover on Dexy's Midnight Runners' "Come
on Eileen" which was the first single released off the
album. They also redid some of their songs from the first
album like, "Spam" and "Superspy."
Although Save Ferris has been called "The next No Doubt",
they are making a name for themselves and casting shadows
of their own.
