Luscious Jackson Touring With Ben Lee

New York hip-hop-pop band and Australian rocker on road together through Nov. 3.

Luscious Jackson will be on the road in North America through early

November with Australian rocker Ben Lee opening.

The hip-hop-influenced New York pop band, whose most recent album was

Electric Honey (June 29), is known for its eclectic combination

of rock, hip-hop, jazz, soul and funk, which it introduced on the 1992

EP In Search of Manny. The group's single "Ladyfingers" (RealAudio

excerpt) features country singer Emmylou Harris.

The songs on Electric Honey are "a result of being happy while we

were making the record," guitarist Gabby Glaser said this summer.

Luscious Jackson's tour intersects with that of acoustic-tinged

singer/songwriter and Grand Royal labelmate Ben Lee. The former leader

of the teen rock band Noise Addict released his moody, introspective

third solo album, Breathing Tornadoes, which includes the single

"Cigarettes Will Kill You" (RealAudio

excerpt), in March.
