As Allmusic points out, Funk-O-Metal Carpet Ride was not funk metal the way Faith No More was, it was more funk shaded hard rock like vintage Aerosmith or early 1970's Rolling Stones. "All Lips and Hips" cracked the Billboard charts, but only reached #76, and ended up being the only Electric Boys song to chart in the U.S. However, the band's psychedelic gypsy-inspired videos did pick up some airplay on MTV, and it seemd as if they were well-positioned to build their audience. Then Nirvana's Nevermind happened, and the Electric Boys soon found themselves totally out of favor.
The band did release two subsequent albums in 1992 and 1994, but neither charted, and they broke up in the mid 1990's. Electric Boys has re-formed in recent years, and even released a new album in 2011.
