Stinking Lizaveta is a power trio from Philadelphia with eight albums out, most recently 'Journey to the Underworld' on the Translation Loss label.
Their 1996 debut album 'Hopelessness and Shame' was recorded by Steve Albini. Albini was so impressed by them that he brought them to the All Tomorrow's Parties festival he co-curated in 2004.
The band's first two albums were on Compulsiv, and their third came out on Joe Lally's (of Fugazi) now-defunct Tolotta Records label. Later releases have been on At a Loss Recordings in the US and Monotreme Records in UK and Europe. 2012's '7th Direction' was released via German label Exile On Mainstream.
Extensive touring included supporting Clutch on a 2005 US tour. They toured in the UK with Clutch and Corrosion of Conformity in 2006. The band got its name from a character in the 1880 Russian novel 'The Brothers Karamazov' by Fyodor Dostoevsky.
“Bringing together elements of funk, metal, punk, jazz and blues with the same kind of cavalier oddball brilliance as Frank Zappa, Stinking Liz are a really unique band whose music possesses a truly bombastic groove and a freewheeling spirit of improvisation and fun”. –The Sleeping Shaman
