Infectious Grooves was formed in 1989 by Mike "Cyco Miko" Muir and Robert Trujillo, respectively the singer and bassist of the band Suicidal Tendencies>. When the group was formed, Muir and Trujillo recruited Adam Siegel and Dean Pleasants on guitars, and drummer Stephen Perkins (formerly Jane's Addiction).
Their first attempt, "Bootin Movin Sampler" , contains only three titles. It will be released elsewhere in audio cassette. It's more of a promotional demo than an album. Then come three studio albums, The Plague That Makes Your Booty Move (published in 1991), Sarsippius' Ark (1993) and Groove Family Cyco (1994); note that from this album the battery is provided by the young Brooks Wackerman. Robert Trujillo leaves Suicidal Tendencies, and is replaced by Josh Paul. In 1997, Infectious Grooves merges with Suicidal Tendencies. The fourth album, Mas Borracho, was released in 1999 with mostly Trujillo on bass and the rest for Josh Paul.
Since 2003, Trujillo joins Metallica and Muir works solo. In 2006, it is the official reformation, Steve and Ron Brunner arrive in 2004 in the place of Trujillo and Wakerman, and Infectious Grooves launches a great world tour. In 2008, Eric Moore replaces Ron Brunner on drums, and Tim Stewart replaces Adam Siegel on guitar.
