Joie De Vivre

by The Condors

This six-song mini album is a tribute to Condors' leader Pat DiPuccio's former band, Blow-Up. It's upbeat, classic rock and roll, with an edgy side of pop on top. The songs were re-recorded to give them the production and love they deserved.

Album Notes
From the moment they took flight with their first release, TALES OF DRUNKENNESS
AND CRUELTY, The Condors knew they were onto something special -- pop songs with
attitude, power, and intellect.
Their second CD, WAIT FOR IT, garnered a great deal of airplay and glowing reviews
worldwide. Loosely chronicling a night in the day of a fanzine writer, the album blasts sonically from start to finish. The track, “Set Me on Fire,” was used in the opening sequence of the indie film, TARGET PRACTICE, with the music video a featured extra on the DVD.
The Condors’ third release, the appropriately named 3 ITEM COMBO CD, delved into more
personal and emotional themes while still retaining the group’s trademark grit. Once again, they enlisted producer/engineer Steve Refling to guide the band into previously uncharted territories of creativity.

Which brings us to "Joie De Vivre." The Condors had frequently played some of Pat's former band Blow-Up's songs live. so while working on their fourth album, the time seemed right to include a few of them. Many of the songs Pat co-wrote in that group never made it past the demo stage and, as such, didn't receive the benefit of a full studio production. Rather than divide the record into songs from two bands, The Condors made the decision to record six re-worked Blow-Up numbers, and release them as mini album. The remaining tracks will form the basis of their next full-length project. A few people involved with Blow-Up even dropped by to lend their talents to the sessions. Singer Jody Worth added background vocals to three of the songs, and Michael Rummans (who Pat had played alongside with in The Sloths) laid down a couple of bass tracks. Even producer/engineer extraordinaire Winter Lazerus (who Pat had known since high school) added some tasty piano to the song "Girl Trouble."

The band’s current lineup consists of singer/guitarist Patrick DiPuccio and drummer John Murphy, with selected bass players filling in. The trio creates a full and energetic sound that ignites their live shows. After listening to their music, or seeing them perform, you will understand why the critics have sung the praises of The Condors.
