With Soul Asylum, The Wailers and Matthew Sweet.
During the late '80s and early '90s, Big Head Todd & The Monsters (the Colorado-based trio of guitarist/keyboard player Todd Park Mohr, bassist Rob Squires and drummer Brian Nevin) built their audience through constant touring, playing college towns across the country. With these tours, they built a solid fan base before they had even signed to a major label. Although they released a number of records, they weren't quite able to transfer the live appeal of their laid-back, slightly jazzy blues-based pop to disc. Nevertheless, each of their records contains many fine moments, and 1993's "Sister Sweetly," which went gold and stayed in the charts over a year, showed that they were continuing to improve their songwriting as well as their playing.
