════════════════════════ hothouse (2009) ════════════════════════
HOTHOUSE WAS THE members of Line-Up FIVE of Mad Cow, in a different disguise. The idea was designed to cater to the corporate/function market. Dare I say it, a little more sophisticated, to be more serious and not as wacky on stage with the hope of attracting work in that market.
Tony Crisafulli - Lead Vocals/Percussion
Emilia Pirri-Depares - Lead Vocals/Percussion
Perry Eves - Guitar/Vocals
Robert Bellenger - Keyboards
Enzo Magistro - Bass
Greg Morris - Drums/Samples/Vocals
The idea was a good one but it was never really pushed by us or management. It just sat in the background of the band's website and if someone was reluctant to book Mad Cow then Viv would offer hothouse as an alternative.
We even did a video to help promote it (see below), even though we weren't promoting it!!
We did do a few gigs and they were always successful. Mad Cow was a good band no matter what name it went by.
After a while hothouse was dropped to concentrate on just selling Mad Cow.
Back to My Bands.
