Dig formed in 1991 in Los Angeles; vocalist Scott Hackwith had previously produced for The Ramones, and guitarist Dix Denney had played with The Weirdos and Thelonious Monster. After releasing an EP in 1992, they signed with Radioactive Records and issued their first full-length in 1993, produced by Dave Jerden. The single "Believe" was played regularly on MTV's Buzz Bin and was their lone charting hit, reaching #19 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart and #34 on the Mainstream Rock chart. The group issued two further full-lengths in 1996 and 1999.
Sun-60 (later Sun 60 without the hyphen) were a Los Angeles Alternative rock band from 1987-1996.
The band was notable for the vocal gymnastics of Joan Jones, the guitar riffs of David Russo, clever song-writing, and an eclectic combination of styles, including folk, alt rock, pop, and blues.
Despite a cult following, considerable commercial potential, and moderate success both as a touring live act and on record, the band never quite caught on, and split in 1996.

Remember Linda Perry, don't you? She was lead singer of 4 Non Blondes, who released one album then took off for greener pastures. In 1995, Perry released After Hours which remains my favourite solo release. She really put her soul into this and her voice is just as strong as ever. Perry is also well known as a talented producer, sound engineer, musician and songwriter, having penned songs for such artists as Pink and Cristina Aguilera. I don't really think there is much that this woman cannot do.

In 1991, the Divinyls received international acclaim with their hit I Touch Myself. However, long before that hit, where many Americans finally "discovered" the band, the Divinyls were ripping up the stages all around the world and had released 4 prior albums, all unfortunately ignored by American rock radio. After their self titled release in 1991, it was another 5 years before the Divinyls released their last full length CD, Underworld.
The Divinyls regrouped in 2007, did a mini-tour of Australia and released a single, "Don't Wanna Do This."
Here's that new single, and the Australian hit, Human On The Inside off the Underworld CD. - I Hate the 90s
