Superbus - Lola

In 1999, Jennifer Ayache went looking for musicians to make a group. She met Michel Giovannetti, a guitarist; and François Even, a bassisit; who already knew each other from another group, and formed a new band. They started out as a three-piece before 2 other members joined. Those two were later replaced by Guillaume Roussé (on drums), and Patrice Focone (on guitar). Roussé quit the band in 2005, and was replaced by Greg Jacks. The band got their name from the Latin word superbus, meaning superb. It is said that the lead singer Jennifer Ayache stumbled upon that word when browsing a Latin dictionary. Superbus' style is influenced by a vast array of bands, from No Doubt to Sum 41, via Weezer, Blink 182 and Sublime. (wikipedia)
