Lavish Radish is all about power. Killer female vocals, screeching guitars, and a thundering rhythm section. We're classic rock, hard rock, pop and funk rolled into one. We love it loud, and we will always get a crowd moving.

Biography

Jammin. Heavy. Melodic. Funky. Powerful. That's Lavish Radish.

Formed in early 2004, the group quickly realized that their unique musical backgrounds would shape them into a band like no other. Lead vocalist Steph's pure vocal power resonates the likes of Janis Joplin and Ann Wilson, making her the quintessential frontwoman. Guitarist Beanz schooled himself in the styles of Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck and other classic rock virtuosos. Bassist Brian carries the essential low-end that can weave its way into everything from funk to blues to rock, and drummer Pete harkens his hard rock background to add the final touch of power.

Since their formation, Lavish Radish has performed at Milwaukee's annual Summerfest in 2004, 2005 and 2006, and the inaugural Summerfest Encore, sharing the stage with acts such as Moby and Breaking Benjamin, and has played numerous shows at popular Milwaukee clubs such as BBC and Shank Hall.

Lyrics

Mayhem

Written By: Pete w/ Stephanie

I am the cause of your dismay
I'll never get out of your way
I'm like a hawk that never sleeps
Too paranoid to even breathe
I can't just let you run the show
I'll beat out of you what I don't know
I'll have to do this all myself
I can't rely on someone else
So I'll just put you all through hell

Am I not making myself clear?
I'm clearly driven by this fear
A fear that I could lose this all
So you'll just have to take the fall
I'll justify all of your choices
I'll try to silence all your voices
And when it's time for me to go
I'll come back and take the show
I'll come back and take the show

I won't see you standing around
I won't see you flagging me down
I won't see you laugh in my face
I won't see you be a disgrace

I won't leave you...

Suffocation
My fixation
I'll be chasing you

Escape

Written By: Stephanie w/ Pete

When lightning's striking down the sky at night
And the only thing you feel isn't right
Cuz the love that you gave was the love that you made

(Chorus)
Yesterday
Feel my freedom so far away
Can I get back to yesterday
Feel my freedom so far away

A time when all our plans were made, plans were made, yeah
And the only place where time stands still is in our graves
Our escape
Because time can't unwind and your love can't erase

(Chorus)
