The release of “M is for Millions” marked the first time a band from Lincoln had a major-label release in decades.
PolyGram released the major-label debut of The Millions in October 1991. Songs like “Sometimes” and “Guilty” were favorites on college radio and still stand up now, more than 20 years later.
It was big stuff for a buzzed-about local band. Unfortunately, The Millions disbanded after releasing one more album, “Raquel.”
Now, fortunately for fans, the band is reuniting. The group plays the Bourbon Theatre in Lincoln on Saturday. They have a new (actually, sort of old) album, too.
“Poison Fish” is an album of rarities recorded decades ago that will be available at the band’s shows. It can currently be found at some Lincoln record stores and will soon be on Amazon and iTunes.
And a related note: A search for The Millions online won’t turn up too much. In an effort to listen to “M is for Millions” on Spotify we found another band now owns the band name “The Millions.” Lincoln’s The Millions are now officially referring to themselves as The Millions NE.
