Ed's Redeeming Qualities

Ed's Redeeming Qualities was an alternative folk group that was founded in 1988 and originally consisted of Dani Leone, Dom Leone, Carrie Bradley (who also performed with The Breeders), and Neno Perrotta. Dom Leone died of cancer in 1989. Jonah Winter joined the band when Neno Perrotta left in the mid-1990s. The band received some mainstream exposure when The Breeders covered their song Drivin' On 9 on their album Last Splash, and The Presidents of the United States of America covered the eponymous track, More Bad Times. Ed's Redeeming Qualities also contributed several songs to the soundtrack for the movie Ed's Next Move, a film in which they briefly appeared. Their songs were often funny and strange story-songs or character sketches. Some highlights include Perrotta's Lawyers and Truckers and Lawn Dart, and Dom Leone's Spoken Word. Though the band has officially broken up, some members of the group still occasionally get together for reunion concerts every few years or so. After the band's breakup, Carrie Bradley went on to form the band 100 Watt Smile, which released two albums in the late 1990s. Dani Leone went on to form the band Sister Exister, which released its first CD in 2008. Dani Leone also went on to write the Cheap Eats column for the San Francisco Bay Guardian under the nom de guerre L.E. Leone. Jonah Winter and Neno Perrotta went on to writing careers.
