INFECTIOUS GROOVES picture
Infectious Grooves are a funk metal band led by Suicidal Tendencies frontman Mike Muir. It also featured ex-Suicidal Tendencies, now Metallica, bassist Robert Trujillo, and ex-Jane's Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins.

Though Muir's sense of humor was often obvious with Suicidal Tendencies, Infectious Grooves often brought out a goofier type of humor: their albums contain comedy skits by a reptilian lover named Sarsippius.

The band can be seen (and heard) performing as the prom band in the 1992 Pauly Shore film Encino Man

In a recent interview, Muir reported that the Infectious Grooves are recording new material.

INFECTIOUS GROOVES The Plague That Makes Your Booty Move... It's the Infectious Grooves

Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
siLLy puPPy
Infectious indeed! It sounds like the Red Hot Chili Peppers added a thrash metal guitarist to the mix and turned everything up a few notches. Speed, funkiness, creativity. Robert Trujillo's bass is the main star here (but all is played well) and played just the way I like it. Fast and furiously funky. INFECTIOUS GROOVES was the side project of Mike Muir of SUICIDAL TENDENCIES. Obviously a place to unleash all that built up funkiness that just couldn't find a home in ST. With seven members this album has a rich full sound to it.

The album is hilarious as it has sort of a weaved-in story or joke rather about a funky lizard named Sarsippius, the world-reknowned reptilian lover who is trying to break into the recording sessions. It is utterly ridiculous but luckily non-musical skits are short and surrounded by some of the most amazing aggressive funky metal ever laid down on track. Sarsippius will go on to be their mascot.

The album starts with a big beefy bassline that rocks the house as thrash metal guitars follow to usher in “Punk It Up.” That pretty much sets the stage for what's to come. The second track “Therapy” has none other than OZZY OSBOURNE himself guesting on vocals. Most tracks are funky metal but a couple aren't. The “Infectious Blues” is a little blues ditty recorded like an old record complete with scratches. “Back To The People” is funky but with a bonafide drum circle interlude. “Monster Skank” is one of the coolest pieces of music i've ever heard and showcases all the musicians' talents to the max!

Although the next albums by INFECTIOUS GROOVES are worth hearing, this one blows them all away in that it is awesome from beginning to end. Ironically as much as I tried I could never really get into SUICIDAL TENDENCIES but I absoloutely love this! Liberate your booty and listen to this!

UMUR
Groove Family Cyco is the 3rd full-length studio album by American funk metal/ thrash metal act Infectious Grooves. The album was released in March 1994 by 550 Music. Infectious Grooves is a side-project by members of Suicidal Tendencies. The band was formed in 1989 when bassist Robert Trujillo joined Suicidal Tendencies. His funky slap-bass playing style was already occasionally heard on Lights... Camera... Revolution (1990) by Suicidal Tendencies, but I guess vocalist Mike Muir and Robert Trujillo wanted to take the funky element a step further outside the confines of Suicidal Tendencies and that´s when they created Infectious Grooves. The other members of the lineup for this album is Dean Pleasants ( guitar, Adam Siegel ( guitar) and Brooks Wackerman ( drums).

The music on the album is a combination of alternative funky heavy metal and the occassional thrash metal part. Mike Muir´s vocal style is instantly recognisable and while the music is pretty different from Suicidal Tendencies, it´s hard not to think of that band because of the vocals. All songs are more or less enjoyable but few are really excellent IMO. It´s the playing on the album that I´m most impressed by. Especially some of Robert Trujillo´s basslines really sound impressive. The man is very skilled. The other musicians also deliver some really sharp and funky playing. It´s when the band mix some harder edged thrash metal parts into their funky metal that I find them most enjoyable though but unfortunately that happens too seldom.

The production is clean and powerful.

Groove Family Cyco is the kind of album I take out on occassion when I´m in the mood for this type of music and while I know some people ( Especially bassists) are really hooked on Infectious Grooves, they were always just the odd Suicidal Tendencies side-project to me. So overall Groove Family Cyco is an enjoyable album that deserves a 3 - 3.5 star rating.
