Only later on, Ya Kid K was allowed to appear. In the past, Stephan has also joked about a Ouija board and alcohol being the sources of the name. Originally, Bogaert used a model in order to promote the song. The other group members liked it and chose it as the band's name. Bogaert later on worked together with different vocalists. However, on a radio station interview Stephan Jenkins indicated that the band's name came from the metaphysical idea of a mind's eye, a topic of a book he had read. Together with Ya Kid K, he wrote the hit single Pump Up the Jam which meant the start of the Belgian hip hop scene. A common misconception is that the name of the band is an euphemism for penis.
Technotronic is a Belgian Techno band formed by Jo Bogaert in the late eighties. A fourth album is reported to be in the works. The lack of professional music videos for the album's two singles "Blinded" and "Crystal Baller" have been lamented by fans. Dispite a strong debut at #12 on the Billboard 200 and many quotes from the band remarking on their happiness with the album, Out of the Vein has largely been a commerical dissapointment. The band's third album Out of the Vein was released on May 15th, 2003.
Cadogan subsequently sued Third Eye Blind for breach of contract, with a settlment of an undisclosed amount permanently ending the relationship. Tony Fredianelli, who had some limited experience with the band previously, joined the band shortly thereafter. During the Band's tour shortly after the release of Blue, Kevin Cadogan was "released" from the band (allegedly following a vote by the band's other members). Despite the general agreement by the band's fans that as a whole Blue was a much moodier, darker album, the pop-esque "Never Let You Go" helped launch the album to selling over 2 million copies.
In 1999 the band began writing new material and recorded their 13-track album Blue, which was released on November 23, 1999. The album has since gone on to sell over 6 million copies. This album included the smash hit "Semi-Charmed Life" and others, including "Jumper", "How's It Going To Be", "Losing A Whole Year", "Narcolepsy", and the fan favorite "Motorcycle Drive By". Third Eye Blind's 14-track self-titled debut album Third Eye Blind was released on April 8, 1997.
Through a lot of recording and after opening a show for Oasis, the band finally signed with Elektra Records in June of 1996. Third Eye Blind recorded their first demo in 1993. Third Eye Blind's current line-up is Stephan Jenkins (vocals, electric guitar), Arion Salazar (bass guitar), Brad Hargreaves (drums), and Tony Fredianelli (electric guitar). The band's original line-up changed several times before the release of the group's debut album, and again shortly after the release of the band's second album Blue — at which point the band's main guitarist Kevin Cadogan was released from the band under circumstances that still elicit controversy among fans.
The original members were Stephan Jenkins (singer, song writer, electric guitar), Kevin Cadogan (guitar,song writer), Adrian Burley (drums), and Jason Slater (bass guitar). Third Eye Blind is an alternative rock band which formed in the early 1990s. Out of the Vein (2003). Blue (1999).
