Leisure Class

Formed in Detroit in 1977, the band got their start opening for The Mumps (featuring Lance Loud) and local favorites like Flirt and Destroy All Monsters.

Formed in Detroit in 1977, the band got their start opening for The Mumps (featuring Lance Loud) and local favorites like Flirt and Destroy All Monsters. They spent the following years amusing, annoying, and antagonizing audiences in Detroit and environs, finally releasing their four-song EP, Mr. Unique and the Leisure Class, in 1983. The record received generally favorable, though puzzled, reviews from Ira Robbins in Trouser Press, and Dennis Loren in the Metro Times, who found "something to offend everyone." The band moved to New York, making their debut at CBGB in 1984. Over the next several years, Leisure Class combined their unique musical vision with a multimedia assault that included, at various times, legendary writer Herbert Huncke, impaled goat's heads, and a custom built two-story prison. In 2005, they were profiled on the National Public Radio show, Day to Day ("The Rise, Fall and Reunion of the Leisure Class"). Lead singer Dimitri Mugianis is the subject of the recent documentary film, "I'm Dangerous With Love". « hide
