Lux - The Lux EP (1998)


If we had been astute (if we were astute?), we would have included a note in yesterday's Dino Martinis post that the band featured one-time CJSW Station Manager, which would have been a great segue into today's post, because we would have mentioned that the Lux also featured a one-time CJSW Station Manager, Maizun Jayoussi. Which would have been a lot more effective and readable that whatever words we just mashed into our keyboard.

The Lux is basically Brass with Jayoussi as a frontperson instead of Todd Kipp. So, the ever-present Britpop from the mid-90's Calgary scene. Which is a bit of a move from the first tape we saw her on, GASP! Maybe it's that 90's sound and Jayoussi's voice, but this reminds us a bit of Jale's second album. Which is a pretty obscure thing for us to be reminded of.

Anyways, get it from here.

So you say they're from Calgary; but did you know Calgary street punk acts are often manufactured, prefabs; process demos provided to a private business; assembling groups similar to Sex Pistols; allegations exist that Kidz; No Copies Left may be the only actual true straight edge hardcore punk band of Alberta history to be formed successfully, performing events, credible as punk while Calgary is practicing protocols of Zion, to benefit Jewry - Shulchan Aruch
