Prozac+


Prozac+

Prozac+ is an Italian punk band, founded in Pordenone in 1995. As with the Canadian band Prozzäk, they are named for the brand name of the antidepressant fluoxetine.

History

The band's three founding members are Gian Maria "GM" Accusani (guitarist and singer), Eva Poles (singer), and Elisabetta Imelio (bassist).

Their first album, "Testa Plastica" in 1996, was critically acclaimed but sold poorly due to distribution problems; their recording company responded by sending the band on a year-long concert tour, during which they performed at over 200 shows. Their second album, "Acido Acida" in 1998, was released by EMI and sold 175 000 copies.
