100 Flowers

Biography

100 Flowers is the second incarnation of late 70s Los Angeles gutter punk minimalists the Urinals. Composed of John Talley-Jones (vocals/bass guitar), Kjehl Johansen (guitar), and Kevin Barrett (drums), the trio decided that "the Urinals" wasn't going over too well with the California proletariat, and reorganized in 1981 as 100 Flowers, after Mao Zedong's 1956 socialist edict, "Let a hundred flowers bloom; let a hundred schools of thought contend."
