The rock band Barstool Prophets formed in the late '80s, consisting of songwriter and bassist Glenn Forrester, guitarists Graham Greer and Al Morier, and drummer Bobby Tamas. The group released a couple of singles and music videos together, and three full-length albums, then seemed to fade away before the new millennium rolled around. A year after the name change, Barstool Prophets released its first album, Deflowered. For an independent recording, the debut sold reasonably well. By 1995 the band signed with the Mercury Records label. A sophomore album was soon born, Crank, and a couple of singles appeared around the same time. It took two years for a third offering to arrive, Last of the Big Game Hunters. It was also the last of Barstool Prophets.
