The Januaries

The '60s-pop-inspired alternative band the Januaries features vocalist/guitarist Debbie Diamond, guitarist/programmer/producer Rick Boston, keyboardist/programmer John Nau, bassist Tobias Kroon, drummer Petur Smith, and trumpet player Mitch Maker. Diamond is a former member of the punk band Pink Fuzz; Rick Boston produced Rickie Lee Jones' 1997 album Ghostyhead. The band members' diverse backgrounds and shared affection for Burt Bacharach, Serge Gainsbourg, the Doors, Sandie Shaw, and Nico culminated in a self-titled EP and album, both of which were released in 2000 by Foodchain Records. ~ Heather Phares
