Formed 1999.


Greenskeepers are an alternative rock/indie rock band from Chicago. One of their most notable tracks is the cult hit "Lotion", a song that pays homage to Buffalo Bill, the fictitious serial killer featured in the 1991 film, The Silence of the Lambs. The chorus of "Lotion" comes from Buffalo Bill's most recognizable line of dialogue in the film, that being "it rubs the lotion on its skin, or else it gets the hose again." "Lotion" also came in at #90 in the 2004 Triple J Hottest 100.

The band made a song for the videogame Grand Theft Auto IV called "Vagabond". The song was featured in one of the commercials, in the game itself, and on the soundtrack.

The band was heavily championed by British DJ John Peel, their track "Low & Sweet" appearing in his 2001 Festive Fifty.
