The Ludes Launch New Album in Toronto

Published: 2004-11-10
Although they no longer have a home, the members of The Ludes still have time to rock. The four-piece may have been evicted from their house-cum-studio, but the Toronto based band will take up temporary residence at the Legendary Horseshoe Tavern on November 26th to celebrate the release of their newest full-length album. The self-titled album will become the band's second full-length upon its release.

Since The Ludes faced an untimely eviction from said home/studio, the band has decided to take their show on the road permanently. If they're to be believed, the four-piece has constructed their own make-shift RV out of an old school bus which they decided to "paint it, rock'n'roll black". The Ludes have plans to tour all around Canada through the winter, until "it gets too damn cold to live in a bus". That touring scheduled doesn't have any definite plans, so check back to the band's official website ( for constant updates on The Lude's whereabouts.

In between their impending 10-track eponymous release, and their debut LP 'Rumpletey Keytarded' (released in 2000), The Ludes released two EPs. The first of them was a four-songer called 'All The Chi in China', which was put in to the world in 2002. The second was 'One Little Odd Number' (released in 2004), featuring six of the quartet's guitar pop songs.

Four tracks from The Ludes' second album are available from the band's official site: 'All In My Head', 'Making Love to the CBC', 'One Little Odd Number', 'Hands That Come Together'.

The track-listing of 'The Ludes' is as follows:

'Making Love to the CBC'
'Hands That Come Together'
'She Wants Answers'
'All In My Head'
'One Little Odd Number'
'Bedroom Eyes'
'27 Breakups'
'The Last One Million'
'I'm A Lover'
'Every Night'

Though I fully understand the author's scepticism regarding the truthfulness of the band's tales from the road, particularly in light of the handiwork, both literary and culinary, that has gone into the tour diary, this is no frontier fairy tale. I've been on the bus and, though it was only a few weeks into the tour (Ottawa), I could tell something was up in a gig, life-affirming way. Killer tunes, great show, nice guys.
