Enuff Z’nuff are the living, breathing example of what a rock/pop group should be. The band was formed in 1984 in Blue Island, Illinois. Its first release, Fingers On It, gave the band some initial recognition when the track was featured in the 1986 cult movie, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer.
By 1989, original members, Chip Z'Nuff and Donnie Vie, were joined by guitarist Derek Frigo and drummer Vikki Foxx. The band had signed with Atco/Atlantic Records that same year and released their debut self-titled album. The album spawned two singles that were to change the course of the bands history, New Thing and Fly High Michelle. Both songs were played constantly on radio, and gained heavy rotation on MTV spending over 60 weeks in the top 10.
1991 saw the band release its follow up, Strength. The album had more of a rock overtone, and following its release, the band became regulars on shows like David Letterman and Howard Stern and was featured in Rolling Stone’s hot issue as ‘the next big thing'.In 1993 the band left Atco records and moved to Arista, releasing the album, Animals With Human Intelligence. The album gained lots of critical acclaim, and prior to its release, Vikki Foxx was replaced by new drummer Ricky Parent.

However you can tell her influences go far beyond just that, with poppy and in your face melodies she takes the guitar driven music of Baby and the Nobodies to new levels that force you to pay attention. Penning the music falls on guitar player, Rev, who has written and performed all over the world, he takes his influences from the early Punk and Glam scene citing Johnny Thunders and Mike Ness as his favorites. He states: "If I hear something I like, I can't stop listening, be it punk, rock, country or dance music I don't care, if it's good I listen to it".
