Album Notes
Touch officially began in May of 1997, after the release of Jordan's solo album, "Obscure Portrait." After exploring the "solo" scene, Lucas decided to once again begin the endeavor that set forth the band you now know today. February 1994. A small garage in a town in southern Ohio, no larger than a garbage can,a sound was heard. Be that, music or noise, there was a sound from a guitar that could only support one string. This was the beginning to the career Lucas now lives. Along with former drummer, Joe Wilks, Jordan began writing "two-note" songs and yelling at the top of his lungs; trying to release whatever necessities needed to exit his body. The band quickly grew and came to take the name "Bliss."Scott Gabbey was the first to join Lucas and Wilks, and he found his place in playing lead guitar, while Lucas planted himself at the bass/vocals, position. The three began colaborating and came up with their first release, a demo of sort, called "Catch." This LP included seven songs and was only released at a local level. There is only about 300 copies in the world, and it has been labeled "one of the hardest singles to find." June. 1995. The band hires, Kevin Simpson, a West Virginia native. They begin work on their hit album, "Flux." Shortly after hiring Kevin, Bliss began touring and promoting the upcoming release of "Flux." August. 1995. "Flux" is released to the world. The band, which now consisted of Jordan Lucas, Joe Wilks, Kevin Simpson and Scott Gabbey,continued touring in promotion of the release. Bliss was in turmoil. Jordan was beginning to pull away while the other members just lost interest. Bliss officially seperated in November of 1996. So, "The Maudlin Etiquette" was born. This album was produced, engineered and written completely by Lucas, he went under the name "The Maudlin Etiquette." The album was called "Obscure Portrait." This album sold very well. But there was pressure from Lucas's current label,TearDrop Recordings, to set some tour dates. Lucas began searching for the completion of his band.
May. 1997. Jordan begins playing with former bassist, Corey Grashel, and "Touch" begins. They quickly get their music together and began writing, "Structural Infinite Regress." December. 1997. "Structural Infinite Regress" is released, and Touch begins touring for the single and for the upcoming release of "The Challenging Discourse." While touring, former drummer, Joe Wilks got to play some shows with the band, and a brief uniting occurred. The new album, which came out November 4th of 2001, was produced by Lucas. With a new Los Angeles landing pad and dope new songs that will put you on your ass, the band has a much different face, but the same great sound. The band has gone through a lot in process of releasing this new CD. Jordan admits that their lives have changed drastically during the making of this album. He nodded his head when asked if they were happy that this album was almost finished. Jordan is currently putting the finishing touches on the newest project! More information on this "mysterious" work will be up soon...

Amazing indie work
This album was wonderful! My friend let me hear it for the first time at the beginning of the year and I immidiately went out and got my own copy! It has a sound like no other album I've ever heard!!! A Pink Floyd meets Dinosaur Jr, feel. An emotional trip from the very fist note. The best concept album I have ever had the pleasure of hearing. I highly recommend this album to all true music lovers. You'll be on the edge of your seat listening for the next unexpected twist that Lucas has awaiting. Listen to both cd's in one sitting! You'll be a true Touch Rx fan by the end of the hidden track on the second disc. (Which is my favorite song on the album, by the way!)
Get this album, you will not be sorry!


Wonderful work. Very rarely do I get CDs that I can listen to for hours, but this is one.
