The East Village all-star unit Butter 08 comprised Cibo Matto's Miho Hatori and Yuka Honda, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion's Russell Simins, Skeleton Key's Rick Lee and graphic designer Mike Mills (not to be confused with the R.
E.M. bassist of the same name). Formed in the wake of a drunken evening spent producing the Cibo Matto single "Know Your Chicken", Butter 08's demo was passed by Simmons to Beastie Boy Mike D, who immediately signed the supergroup to his Grand Royal label; their debut LP, Butter, followed in 1996.
