Rasputina is a cello-driven band. It started in Brooklyn, New York in 1992, when Melora Creager put out an advertisement requesting members to form an all-cello band. Cellist Julia Kent responded and the two formed what was dubbed the Traveling Ladies' Cello Society.
The group is renowned for their unconventional and quirky music style and fascination with historical allegories and fashion, especially those pertaining to the Victorian era.
Creager writes all of the lyrics for Rasputina, performs most of the vocals, and creates some of the art for the band's albums, singles, and website.
How We Quit the Forest is the second studio album from Rasputina, released in 1998. This album is now out of print and difficult to find in shops, mostly due to Columbia's (their label from 1996-1999) dissatisfaction with its sales. Former Nine Inch Nails drummer Chris Vrenna produced the album and provided its many sounds and samples.
