Rock


Featuring ex-Everclear drummer Greg Eklund on guitar, indie rockers the Oohlas are fronted by vocalist/guitarist Ollie Stone and rounded off by Eklund's brother Mark on bass. The trio (they've had no permanent drummer) formed in 2004 after Stone relocated to Los Angeles from Phoenix and met Mark, who was working for Stone's aunt. Mark introduced her to Greg, who had recently left Everclear. Wasting little time, they practiced in Greg's studio and were playing in the Los Angeles area. Within a year, an EP was issue on Stolen Transmission Records, a subsidiary of Island, in February of 2006. In September the Oohlas released the full album Best Stop Pop. ~ Kenyon Hopkin, Rovi
