Urge Overkill

Urge Overkill band name idea - Man machineA correct interpretation of the band name is not apparent to us, perhaps it means something like an overdose of desires or impulses?

The formation, originating from Chicago, Illinois that plays mainly alternative rock songs, consists of only two men: singer Nash Kato and Eddie ‘King’ Roeser (vocals and guitars).

Their cover of Neil Diamond’s Girl, you'll Be A Woman Soon - featured in Pulp Fiction - brought them fame.

The band name is taken from a song by the band Parliament, entitled Funkentelechy, which is available on the album Funkentelechy Vs. The Placebo Syndrome (1977).

A part of that song text (leaving us speechless) is here:

‘Mood control is designed to render funkable / Ideas brought to you by the makers of Mr. Prolong / Better known as Urge Overkill / The pimping of the Pleasure Principle.’

Active: 1986-1997; 2004-heden, USA
