Biography

RockBoar.com Picture

   Mumps were an American punk band fronted by Lance Loud.

    Other members of the band included  Kristian HoffmanRob DupreyJay Dee Daugherty  and Aaron Kiley. Kiley and Daugherty were replaced with Kevin Kiely and John Earl (JED) Dennis. Shortly thereafter Dennis was replaced by Paul Rutner.

     Their first 45 RPM single was "Crocodile Tears". Their second was "Rock & Roll This & That" with a double side B of "Muscleboys" and "That Fatal Charm". The recorded version of the song "Rock & Roll This & That" interpolated a short guitar riff from the Rolling Stones' "I Can't Get No Satisfaction", but in live performances, they would interpolate other riffs such as David Bowie's "Rebel Rebel".

     Mumps concerts were lively and featured energetic, expressive performances from Lance Loud and other band members on songs like "We're Americans", "I Believe In Anyone But You", "Strange Seed", "Brain Massage", "Scream and Scream Again".

    Mumps were a popular band at clubs such as Max's Kansas City and CBGB. They also performed at Irving Plaza and Maxwell's (Hoboken, New Jersey), and opened for the Ramones at Hurrah in August 1978.

    In spite of two independently produced 45 records they released, they failed to secure a contract with a major record label. Two compilations of their music have been released, "Fatal Charm" (Eggbert Records, 1994) and a remastered, 2-disc CD and DVD compilation, "How I Saved The World", in 2005.
