FroSTed

FroSTed

[fraw-stid, fros-tid]
froSTed was a short-lived pop punk group formed by ex-Go Go's guitarist and singer Jane Wiedlin. The band was so-named because "it sounds sweet". The letters S and T were capitalised in tribute to Star Trek, one of Wiedlin's favourite TV shows. They released one album in 1996.

History

Wiedlin was joined by a second guitarist, Brian Waters, Sean Demott on bass and Lance Porter (of Ex-Idols) on drums. All three men provided additional vocals.

froSTed began by playing live in Los Angeles and San Francisco, before their sole album Cold, co-produced with Marc Waterman, was issued in August 1996. It was not a commercial success but was well-received by critics. Allmusic describes the album as "bright, chunky, and radio-friendly without being gooey mainstream glop".

Rachel Haden was credited with singing, while a guesting Gerri Sutyak played cello. Four songs on the album were co-writted with fellow Go Go's guitarist Charlotte Caffey.

The tracks "Bed" and "Call Me Crazy" were released as a single.

froSTed's last show was at 14 Below in Santa Monica, on 31 March 1998.
