Cracker is an American alternative rock band featuring Johnny Hickman and Camper Van Beethoven singer and guitarist David Lowery.
Cracker mixes influences and sounds ranging from classic country music, psychedelia, punk and folk into their brand of "Americana" style rock.
By 1991, the newly formed band had signed a recording contract with Virgin Records and enlisted the help of several drummers/percussionists (Jim Keltner, Michael Urbano and Phil Jones), issuing their self-titled debut in 1992, which featured radio hit "Teen Angst," which peaked at #1 on Modern Rock Tracks.
Lowery's old band, Camper Van Beethoven, unexpectedly re-formed in 1999. Since that time, Lowery has performed in both Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven.
Cracker underwent numerous personnel changes during in the early 2000s. Increasingly, there was a tendency for musicians to play with both Camper Van Beethoven and Cracker: dual members of or guest performers in these bands at various points during the decade included Lowery, bassist Victor Krummenacher, keyboardist Kenny Margolis, guitarist David Immergluck and drummer Frank Funaro.
