Chris Richards and The Subtractions - Get ya la la's out! Out Now....if you now what I mean!

When this arrived at the "Ice Cream Man Power Pop and More" I immediately recognised the name Chris Richards, Chris released one of my favourite albums back in 2004, the album was called "Mystery Spot" and that led me to seek out more of his solo albums and his works with the magnificent Pantookas all of which are absolutely brilliant.  On "Get Your La La's Out"  Chris is joined by bass player Todd Holmes and drummer Larry Grodsky who provide great backing on the album, you may recognise these names from Hippodrome and The Pantookas.

This is straight up in your face Power Pop with a  blend of British inavsion, take a listen and place an order!!

 It’s been a very busy time in the Subtractions life…We’ve been fine tuning our set for our Get Yer La La’s Out Release party at the spacious Berkley Front (Friday 6/22) with the Subtractions addition of Nick Piunti (a hell of a songwriter himself- do check out some of his works via CD Baby). We’ll be spending most of our “stage time” playing tracks of our last two records and some older surprises sprinkled about.

We also approved the vinyl master for La La’s and it’s set to arrive by mid July- all pre-orders will be shipped at that time. I have to be honest with you…it sounds incredible. You can stream the vinyl only bonus track here- Dogs. The LP will be available via our site (with free immediate download) or through CD Baby and Amazon in July.

Next up…We’ll put the finishing touches on That Covers That Vol 2 – perhaps featuring tracks by Chris Bell, Cheap Trick, the Who…Coming this summer to a free download site near you.

If you haven't already, be sure to download That Covers That Vol 1 (free 5 track download) today.

The band don't appear to have a facebook page but you are able to contact them via e mail at their official site.
