Brilliant Mistakes - All Hands & The Cook - 1999

The melodic, eclectic pop band the Brilliant Mistakes consists of vocalist/keyboardist Alan Walker, bassist Erik Philbrook, guitarist Andy Resnick and drummer Mick Wood. The New York City-based quartet formed in the mid-'90s when Walker and Philbrook discovered they shared a love for classic Motown and British pop singles; after Resnick and Wood joined them, the group became a fixture of Manhattan's club circuit. In 1997 and 1998, the Brilliant Mistakes were semifinalists in Musician magazine's "Best Unsigned Band" competition and played the CMJ Music Festival. 1998 also saw the release of their debut album All Hands & The Cook, which the group put out on their own Aunt Mimi's Records label, and re-released the following year. -AMG
