One of the most popular sets at this past Summer’s Orion Music + More festival was the reunion of Infectious Grooves, initially a funk-metal side project of Suicidal Tendencies. While the band never technically broke up, interest fell way off after their disappointing second album, 1993’s Sarsippius’ Ark. Also, bassist Robert Trujillo joined some other band called Metallica. Their set at Orion must have gone well enough for them to decide to play again, as it’s been reported that the band will be playing another show, this time at Los Angeles’ Whisky A Go Go on January 31, 2014 as part of the club’s 50th anniversary.
Once again, it’s going to be an impressive lineup. Original drummer Stephen Perkins (Jane’s Addiction) will be returning to the fold, and while Adam Siegel won’t be playing guitar for the reunion, once again, former Faith No More guitarist Jim Martin will be stepping in. That’s an all star lineup joining Mike Muir and Trujillo right there. The band’s first and most popular album, The Plague That Makes Your Booty Move… It’s the Infectious Grooves, featured Muir, Trujillo, Perkins, and the guitar duo of Dean Pleasants and Siegel. It also featured guitar work from Suicidal Tendencies’ Rocky George and Velvet Revolver’s Dave Kushner.
