Another Bad Creation (ABC)


Another Bad Creation were an R&B\hip-hop group of the 90's from Atlanta, Georgia, that consisted of brothers Demetrius "Red" & Marliss "Mark" Pugh, Romell "RoRo" Chapman, Chris Sellers and David Shelton.

They were discovered by New Edition\Bell Biv Devoe member, Michael Bivins, who became the group's manager & producer.

In February of 1991, Another Bad Creation released their debut album, "Coolin' at the Playground Ya Know!" which peaked at #7 on the Billboard 200 chart and #2 on Billboard's R&B Albums chart.
The first single from the album, "Iesha" became a hit for the group, peaking at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 in April of 1991 and #6 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart in February of 1991, staying on the chart for 25 weeks.
The second single, "Playground" peaked at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100, #36 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Club Play chart, and #4 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart in June of 1991, staying on the chart for 18 weeks.
The third single, a cover version of New Edition's song, "Jealous Girl" peaked at #25 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart in October of 1991, staying on the chart for 13 weeks.

The fourth single, "Spydermann" was released in November of 1991, but didn't appear to make the charts at all.

The last single from the album, "My World" peaked at #77 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart in February of 1992, staying on the chart for only 5 weeks. During 1991, Mark and David appeared in the music video for Michael Jackson's song "Black or White."

In 1993, Another Bad Creation made their only movie appearance in the film, "The Meteor Man" in which they dyed their hair blonde for the movie. They were also featured in the East Coast Family's song, "1-4-All-4-1."
In September of that same year, Another Bad Creation released their second album, "It Ain't What U Wear, It's How U Play It" which failed to make the charts at all nor did the singles, "I Don't Wanna Be Grown Up" and "Where's Ya Little Sista?"
After that, the group broke up and it seemed as if they have faded into obscurity, but in 2006, they reunited and released an all-rap EP entitled "Grady Baby Compliation" which failed to attract any attention. These days, Another Bad Creation seems to have faded back into obscurity again.
