Cravin Melon

Cravin' Melon

Cravin' Melon was a rock band based out of Clemson, South Carolina, USA.

History

Cravin' Melon was formed at Clemson University in 1994 after the dissolution of two other local South Carolina bands, Doghouse and The Next Move. The band gained popularity on the regional live scene, and after a self-pressed EP and full-length, they signed to Mercury Records and released Red Clay Harvest, in 1997. The album spawned a minor radio hit, "Come Undone", which peaked at #37 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart. The band's style and geographical roots prompted frequent comparisons to contemporaries and tourmates Hootie & the Blowfish and Edwin McCain. After a 1998 EP, the band was dropped from the label and recorded a final LP in 2000 before breaking up on May 19, 2001; a double live CD of one of their last performances was subsequently released.
