In 1993 Sonya Madan and Glenn Johansson teamed up with bass guitarist Alex Keyser and drummer Andy Henderson, who had previously played with P J Harvey's band. Guitarist Debbie Smith, formerly of Curve, came on board in 1994. According to the Epic Records' website, the group came up with the name Echobelly from the notion of "being hungry for something." With Madan and Johansson serving as songwriters, Echobelly recorded their debut EP Bellyache on the independent Pandemonium label in late 1993. With songs such as "Give Her a Gun" and "Sleeping Hitler," Bellyache demonstrated the group's willingness to boldly face provocative issues, both musically and lyrically. The title track was called "a Johansson masterpiece, all throbbing tremelo guitars and pent-up angst," by the Epic website. Dealing with rejection has been a major theme for Echobelly--on the romantic, sexual, cultural, and political fronts.
