Founded by Jennifer Finch, former bassist for the all-female metal-grunge band L7, Other Star People was not the expected “next move” from this LA punk rock scene veteran. Switching to guitar and sharing vocals with guitarist Xander Smith. OSP (Other Star People) focused more of Finch’s nuanced songwriting / crafting talents that were hidden in the belly of the screams of L7. Finch and Smith recruited Todd Phillips on drums (formerly of The Juliana Hatfield Three) and later neophyte bassist Japanese native, Junko Ito.
The band signed a high profile deal with A &, M Records, 1998 and quickly went into the studio with producer/superstar Roy Thomas Baker (Queen, Journey, Foreigner) to record “Diamonds In The Belly Of The Dog” just before the music industry imploded. VISIT THE OTHER STAR PEOPLE OFFICIAL SITE >>
