The Ordeal Of Civility

World class guitar hero, Grammy-nominated songwriter Gary Lucas' new studio recording with his psychedelic super-group Gods and Monsters, The Ordeal of Civility was produced by Jerry Harrison of the Talking Heads.

Described as 'an underground rock fan's dream team' by the New Yorker, Gods and Monsters features Gary on guitar and vocals, Billy Ficca (Television) on drums, Ernie Brooks (Modern Lovers) on bass, Jason Candler (Hungry March Band) on alto and tenor sax, and Joe Hendel on trombone and keyboards. The opening 'LuvzOldSweetSong' is nimbly driven by the Ficca/Brooks rhythm team and Hendel's resonant keyboards burbling low in support of Gary's understated vocal and hypnotic guitar motif. 'Chime On' enjoys the classic twang of a country-blues, incorporating snatches of forgotten Americana along the way. 'Swamp T'ing' is a slashing blast of Blank Generation rawk straight outta NYC.
