Mindless Self Indulgence Information Continued
Mindless Self Indulgence's lead singer James Euringer, who uses the stage name Little Jimmy Urine, owes sartorial influence to the New York Dolls, wearing fishnet shirts at concerts. He is also occasionally seen in shorts or pants with the inside cut out, similar to how a skirt looks, and neon stockings. Euringer's outfits and antics are often the focal point of live shows.
Another large influence in Mindless Self Indulgence's music comes from early 1980s culture. Frequently the music contains samples of early 80's hip-hop or rock, as well as Atari-style beeps and tones. Indeed, their first album as a band, 1999's Tight, was allegedly mixed on Atari equipment. Many of Urine's dress styles consist of juxtaposition of popular 1980s clothing or bastardized versions thereof.
Mindless Self Indulgence have opened for a number of popular modern bands including Insane Clown Posse, System of a Down, Korn, Staind, Sum 41 and Rammstein. They have also played many large musical festivals including Voodoo Music Experience in New Orleans on October of 2003, as well as headlining the Mojave tent at the 2004 Coachella Valley Music Festival.
