The Goops were formed in 1992 by guitarist Brad Worrell and vocalist Eleanor Whitledge. After a succession of bandmembers joined and left, bassist Steve Mazur and drummer Jeff Benison climbed aboard just in time for the Goops' self-titled debut album for Blackout!
Records. The punk-popsters toured with Rancid and the Offspring and followed the album with a single/comic-book package called "On the Road with the Goops." Reprise Records signed the group to its Kinetic sub-label and released second album Lucky in 1996. The Goops also have a song on the soundtrack to the film Mallrats ~ John Bush
