A Few Notes

Supraluxe is not an orthodox band. We don't gig, we don't have a manager, a label, or really any spare time to promote our music. I'm sure to the outsider this appears to veer dangerously close to hobbyville, no? Well, sticks and stones. I've never been in ANY band who wrote songs I believe in as much as these. Our entire ethic has been DIY, our CD was done in a basement, Jim's wife took the band pics, any airplay we got was the result of us making personal pleas, etc., etc. And for the last few months we've been ensconced in a practice room the size of a shoebox writing and rehearsing new material. When the new batch is ready to go, lather, rinse, repeat. So if you don't see as much action on the podosphere or elsewhere, that's why. Time is sometimes the enemy. So please know that any contributions you may be able to make to the Supraluxe cause, no matter how small, are appreciated and noted in the book of Karma, and possibly here if I find out about it. Like requesting us on the radio, reviewing our CD at eMusic, whatever. I'm stopping short of asking anyone to do these things, I'm just saying it takes a village to support the village idiot.

You can sleep when you are dead.

#1 most bizarre commercial I have ever seen. I might have to start drinking Folgers.

View the happiness.

The Current

I love when this happens.


John Amato at Crooks and Liars recently fired up the C&L Late Nite Music Club. He's featured many artists that I'm either ga-ga over or at least find quite interesting, and I thought I'd share one with you here - one of my favorite Ravel pieces, Jeux d'eau, played by Sviatoslav Richter.

Go here to read John's take on this performance.

I was not able to find a complete video of my favorite Ravel suite, Le Tombeau de Couperin. Hopefully someone will post a performance of it in its entirety someday.

Finally - Digital Supraluxe

We became available today on a digital music site - eMusic. We've been listed on iTunes for a while, but we're not searchable there, so we don't really exist. However, we are now searchable on eMusic. Check it out through this link...

Still remarkably uncrowded

He forgot the words to Free Bird

The key to happiness

A common malady

And I'll show you how to turn tomatoes into laser guided missiles
