ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Here's how The Ladies & Gentlemen got started...

Unlike their name, The Ladies & Gentlemen do not feature any ladies in the band, yet the all-male group can certainly not be described as gentlemen either! What they do feature is blasts of hook-filled new wave power pop songs that clock in under 3 minutes!
Formed out of the ashes of venerable Chicago stalwarts Box-O-Car, singer/songwriter Skid Marks brought aboard ex-Material Issue drummer Mike Zelenko, ex-Verbow bass player Lennie Deitsch, and Lennie and Skid’s friend, “recording-engineer-extaordinaire” and ex-Poi Energy, Inc. keyboardist Scott Ramsayer to play synthesizer in the spring of 2004.

“Getting a synth player was crucial to separate our sound from the traditional 2 guitars, bass, drums line-up”, says Marks. “In Box-O-Car we loved The Cars, Adam and the Ants, Human League, etc., but we never quite fully distilled that sound like we have in The Ladies & Gentlemen, and I feel it's definitely due to having Scott on board. The cool thing is that I don’t think we sound retro at all. I like to think of us as new new-wave. My vision for The Ladies & Gentlemen is simple: A rock band that makes people wanna shake their ass!”

Since forming less than 2 years ago The Ladies & Gentlemen have already performed with Iggy Pop, Jet, Louis XIV, The Dead 60's, The Cramps, Superdrag, Cheap Trick, We Are Scientists, and Say Hi To Your Mom, to name just a few. All this with no recordings released due to the word-of-mouth buzz about their incendiary live shows!

But all that is about to change…
Their debut album, "Ladies and gentlemen.... The Ladies & Gentlemen!" is available now!
Be first to say you “knew them when”… You’ll be glad you did!!!

Like a Blast from the New Past
The Ladies & Gentlemen's self-titled debut CD has a 80s sound behind it. It's high energy Modern Pop, and reminded me a little of the sounds of Modern English.

Much of the CD is good. Many of the tracks have a similar sound, which made it hard for me to distinguish one song from another, but three stand out: Favorite Songs for me are "Nobody Home", "I Luv U, I Hate You", and especially "Had Me at Hello".

I'll definately be looking for the next CD!
