In 1997, Silver Lake scene darlings VELOURIA released their Scott Campbell-produced (No Doubt, Acetone, Shelby Lynne) debut. FOUR EYES FOR YOU, a perfectly serviceable poppy-punky collection of songs about cynical boys and calculating girls - or ambiguously, and depending on one''s point of view, overtly romantic hopeful boys and pure girls too precious for the big bad world of East Side L.A.
Riding high from having a part of the SILVERLAKE:WHAT A DRAG compilation (The Negro Problem, Extra Fancy, Lutefisk, Popdefect, etc.) and doing numerous West coast tours, VELOURIA seemed next-in-line for next-big-thing status. Glowing reviews washed in from the shores of L.A. Weekly, BAM, Music Connection, and the L.A. Times; major label A&R scouts ghosted the frequent gigs the band packed at Spaceland, Al''s Bar, and Jack''s Sugar Shack. Rodney (the lone moniker suffices) played the hell out of "Audrey and Anguish" on KROQ; and things were looking good in Velourialand.
