Current news about the members of Belly, after the split
Tanya Donelly's new solo career is covered in new pages accessible from the main page. You'll find everything that was here, there, and then some!
Gail Greewood has joined up with her buddy, Bif Naked! ( Thanks Scotty! ) She's still working on Benny Sizzler, so don't worry. Gail had parted from L7 due to geographic reasons: L7 is based in Los Angeles and she is based in Rhode Island, 3000 miles away. The logistics, unfortunately, didn't work out. ( Gail says, "that commute got old!" ;)
Gail will be concentrating on her next musical venture, playing guitar with her new band Benny Sizzler, which Gail says is "so much fun and so much rock". L7 will release their new album, "Slap-Happy" on August 24, 1999 on their own label, "Wax Tadpole Records", with a tour to follow. Gail was in the studio to record that album with L7.
She joined L7 [official site] ( or HelL7 or L7 Rocks! [fan sites] ) as their new bass guitarist after Belly broke up.
I was lucky enough to see her play at the Hollywood Palladium (May 8, 1997), the Whisky A-Go-Go (October 10, 1997), The Barn (March 27, 1998), Linda's Doll House (March 28, 1998), The Garage (March 29, 1998), the El Rey Theatre (April 23, 1998) [see archive/L7], The Whisky A-Go-Go (March 26, 1999) and The Foothill (March 27, 1999). Oh yeah! ;)
L7 is opening for Marilyn Manson. Marilyn Manson is... definately not Belly! I'm a bit spooked by some of the webpages I've seen so far!
L7 on the move again!
Do they ever stop touring?!
Go go Gail!
Hello South America! [This tour was cancelled by the promoter. Most likely, this was due to the economic troubles in South America.]
On the road again... with new songs! L7's SXSW tour:
L7 tour to promote "Slap-Happy", with Janice ( formerly of Stone Fox ) on bass:
Chris Gorman is currently pursuing his photography career, though still keeping active in music. He produced graphic design for the new 4AD band Polara. Perhaps with v23, the design studio that produced all the Belly covers? ( Thanks Kim! ) He also provided images for The Old 97's. ( Thanks Scott Steg! ) Musically, he was working with Scarce's Chick Graning and Fred Abong ( formerly of Throwing Muses and early Belly ). The new band is called Lost Rockets. Christopher Cugini of Delta Clutch was producing the demos. Due to Chick's pursuit of a solo career, Lost Rockets has fallen by the wayside.
C'est La Vie
Tom Gorman is still pursuing Honeychrome as a creative outlet; however, Honeychrome as a band is no more. Heather Balas (vocals) is no longer with Honeychrome. Songs from Honeychrome will be re-recorded and some new songs will be introduced on a yet un-named project involving Chris Gorman. The sound will be more organic alternative with alternative country. Tom had debut his new band, Honeychrome, at the end of January 1999. He rocked on bass with Kristin Hersh for a few shows in 1999. He was rocking with Buffalo Tom on keyboard and guitar.
