Andy Sturmer and Roger Joseph Manning, Jr. met as teenagers in the fall of 1980. Less than fifteen years later, the two of them had won jazz contests, written commercial jingles, become pen pals, joined a band with a San Francisco new wave icon, formed their own group, sparked a major label bidding war, recorded two critically acclaimed records, toured the world (twice), worked with a legendary producer, and backed a Beatle. In 1994, they met in a room and agreed that their musical partnership, as well as their friendship, was over. They shook hands, wished each other well, and left. They have not spoken since.


Drawing from dozens of interviews with all of the major –and many minor—characters in the Jellyfish story to create one seamless master narrative, Brighter Day: A Jellyfish Story follows the course of that friendship from its earliest days in Pleasanton, California through the two decades of silence in search of the answer to the nagging fan question “Why, oh why isn’t there more Jellyfish music?”

YOU REALLY DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT JELLYFISH...but you soon will!
LIGHT 'n FUN FACTS ABOUT THE BAND:
  • An early version of pre-Jellyfish band Beatnik Beatch featured a then unknown Joe Satriani on guitar.
  • Bellybutton was an early candidate for the band's name.
  • The Spilt Milk sessions were so exacting and exhausting, they burned out three second engineers and were known in the LA music community as "The Nightmare on Sunset Blvd".
  • 'The toothpaste-covered model on the cover of Bellybutton went to the emergency room the day after the shoot because she had nasty red welts all over. They went away in a day or two.
  • The snare drum used on much of Spilt Milk has been played on literally hundreds of other recordings, including Nirvana's Nevermind and Jane Addiction's Ritual de lo Habitual.  It's a 1980 Tama bell brass - 6.5 inches deep, heavy as heck, and nicknamed 'The Terminator'.
