Following the demise of the excellent east coast band Christmas, founding members Liz Cox and Michael Cudahy relocated to Las Vegas, where they discovered lounge culture. They reinvented themselves as “The Millionaire” and “Miss Lily Banquette”, and formed the group Combustible Edison. As Sub Pop continued to distance themselves from the damning “grunge” designation, the band’s swingin’ cocktail soundtrack sound seemed like an excellent signing. Their first release with the label was this Sub Pop Singles Club #59, limited to 2,000 copies.
