Thanks from Swampmuck records & LUVIS # 3

Congrats Luvis fanatics were are # 3 for Rock in New Orleans today. Thanks for spinning all the songs and downloading the songs. The page counter for this site has be increasing daily. I have to upgrade my accounts to keep up with the demand. As always I am grateful for everything that happens to me as a independent musician. Swampmuck records has been going crazy with interviews, magazine reviews and a host of other cool stuff that i'll announce at the right time. I am floored today as I look at the stats and see the numbers. # 3 is a special number for me and my family. I still cant believe I placed higher than some of the artist represented here in the big easy. I would love to do a show with Lena Prima and Cowboy Mouth. Sun God Seven and the Molly Ringwalds can rock the hell outa a venue. all these bands I have either seen live or watch online and I must say these are musicians who take and make a lot of noise to support the cause. I tell everybody to check out all the bands on reverbnation. Still I am going to keep the fire burning high and bright for all to see in order to get off this island. Music is a fight. I have fought to explot my music yr after yr. Luvis is the proud owner of over 25 keywords that are exclusive property on the internet super highway. LUVIS, LUVISPRO, LUVIS420, EVIL LUVIS, SWAMPMUCK RECORDS, RINGO DIAMOND, ZIGGY HENDRIX, 6 EYED GOAT, THE STOOL PIGEONS etc etc etc you get the point. All my web mastery combined with my fretboard mastery has been so successful that others ask me to help them and I do so without hesitation. I don't owe this game. the game is mosty rigged. but knowledge is power and passing that power to others is how our community grows. Just like Luke I used the force and now i'm doing battle against the dark side. The NWO hates me and I hate them with songs and poems about them while they use banks and police to crush my spirt. :-) You cant crush watts already been, I have create a frankenstien how love me. I control my freak with beer and wine. I keep my monster happy with fine women and a lust for life. My zombie monster freak doesn't come to hurt you but instead hurts the ones who cant help themselves. my zombie monster freak is out on your city suburban run down 3 world streets hunting out the bullies of the music business who profit from the poor musician. 25 YRS of LUV is all you need to say. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ! SEE YOU MONSTER FREAKS on the mean streets cause MUSIC MEANS FREEDOM ! XOXOXOXOXO

LUVIS 25 YRS cd - Swampmuck Records New Orleans U.S.A. 2014

Musicians are smarter than normal humans due the amount of emotions we pour into our songs. Sometimes others play a song better than you even wrote it , I call that the carl perkins theory. its all good. now every once in a while I get emails from a old friend who hates everything I do or say. we are friends till the end I tell ya. for years I forgot about them. but they always remember where I am and who i'm fukking. so the other day I was told how lame the NEW LUVIS 25 YRS CD was. didn't like the vocals. didn't like the sound. thought the production was weak. We at SWAMPMUCK RECORDS feel your pain bro. believe me ! at first I realize like always I was just a worthless subpar rookie composer with a piece of shit outa tune acoustic. Than we started talking about during our board room safety meeting and its about time I explain myself. So I moved to New Orleans in 2011. I decided to learn more about jazz. I listened to old records and of corse WWOZ radio. It hit me funny how many musicians were on a single mono track and how it sounded great. records skip and scratch and I remember that as a twited little kid. We placed that as a requirement to record with all this digital stuff at the studio. Demos are created for all types of reasons. roughs to be analizes for possible potential for an artist or band. Than we took to another idea which is play it live, unrehearsed, side walk jams playing with a can recordings. Take lyrics that reflect the little bit of positive/negative history of moving from the north to the south again. Keep it simple and pure with little gloss or effects. 1 mic recording all instruments no matter what. We didn't want any mastering during mixdown. Make it not radio friendly and try to curse a lot since that's all us uncivilized mucks do. Record it and Release it to every major server/service as the first album from SWAMPMUCK RECORDS New Orleans. With that said the cost to produce this album was less than $500.00 us dollars. Weve already made our money three fold and the album hasn't been out a month yet. If music was about the money every politician scumbag would be recording with jay z. Music is about freedom I think, to play and say whatever yo want whenever you want. In the meantime we continue onward while my old friend is still hating on me I will raise my bong and toke one up while posting there email on my porn site. what you didn't know I have porno's. BAhahahahahahah Music Means Freedom

Cant catch a 7/8 break with echo on fader #6

I cant seem to catch a fukking break, It very funny to work so hard and come up with very little - that's how the land of the free is, I don't mind cause my lifes is fukking perfect, I beat the rap in new jersey. I punched the devil right in his crooked slimey eye. I fly free like steve miller back in the 70's. AS the CEO of SWAMP MUCK RECORDS all the weight is on my shoulders and I LOVE IT, CAUSE I haven't meet 1 single person who can handle what I bring to the table. I know i'm the guy who will always get picked in the line up. I get the job done , that's why some in business cant sweat me. let me tell what its like to be knee deep in the shit - its really not that bad, just keep walking. But when your in over your head, and there only 1 way and that's 6 ft under ground and yet I'm alive. just me managed to get out of the quick sand of life. If you see me in the back ground looking at you that cause i'm telling myself how its all be o.k. Common sense is all I carry sometimes in my guitar case. As we travel the roads today I'm slowing down. I'm the dam in the river. Posed at making or breaking everything. so much fun when I think of it. Luvis 25 yrs is still going strong. I feel pretty good , my hands are doing better. its my ears that are the problem. no worries I cant still hear stuff , just not as good as I did 3 weeks ago. With that I just remembered that I broke a string on the Luvis acoustic - thats a first and I don't think I have any ? its all good I sound better with on 2 strings sometimes. its raining out and I love it. so last week I got to jam with a new drummer. Tony from the Low Brows helped fill the void for dave & I ( blob snarly ) Thus we are very close to creating a new band. We even played Abucted bi Aliens and without a miss step dude was able to pick up what I threw out. Not many drummers can hang with that song and that's impressive . who knows what Evil I put out there while I send my angels to do my work. I breathe, I learn, I build I WIN ! GAME OVER BAHAHAHAH MUSIC MEANS FREEDOM

Thanks fo "Top 10" for 5 months this yr !

Thanks for keeping your favorite underground musician top 10 for the 5th month this yr. I wake and bake thru 50-60 web sites a day. adding videos, shorts and tracks each week. the numbers a simply amazing. the whole process for 25 yrs has made me really appreciate the game. I will keep posting the new music and selling cd's and merch til i'm no longer able to do so. the only way to get the music out there is to play daily anywhere and everywhere. for every day theres a new blood who doesn't mind being ripped apart from all they ever known. the constant exposure and endless moments with limitless time frames while more and more eye candy is added can become a ocean that cant be tamed. so many of my thoughts come into mind while here in new Orleans. I have flash backs of san diego music conference, Vancouver f-1 race, daisy tek , the copy cat, the Wilshire hotel, canal st, the Bronx all these places where the music was being built and designed. a lot of memories have been captured for the queen to use. I often get a little distracted when I blog music for theres a few people who always come into my mind just like the devil himself. I love to think about that. the inner voice that tells me to keep jamming, keep blogging, keep filming, keep recording keep taking photo's all of it is always been my #1 goal.. Its been a good number of yrs on reverbnation. unlike others this site seems to have everything I need. I endorse this site all the time. there's other but none like the BIG R. Luvis and crew are setting up gigs. small little shows here and there. I be out this week weather permitting at Jackson sq to peddle my wares. A cd release show is still being planned as well at the Warehouse in Mid City - Need some more bands, I think we have plenty of booze. I love jamming in June. 25 yrs ago this month I was kissing my girlfriend goodbye and packing up the car for Lost Angels Calimon. Good times to be a young guy with blue eyes and a pearl white BC Rich Bitch. That guitar was a mean motha. Bought it at Richie's Music in rockaway NJ . It time to go practice my sweep picking techniques it helps my wounded right hand. Old stick hand . it is what it is. see out at the shows. thanks for check out the Luvis 25 yrs on cdbaby and remember that MUSIC MEANS FREEDOM

#8 | L.A Music Factory | Jackson SQ jam out

Thanks you to the L.A Music Factory where the new cd is entombed for future experiences to unleash the healing. the more I think of this the more I have to say Thanks. It was the Factory that was my first venture as a new local musician. 25 yrs in waiting for this moment I guess. Reminds me of going to Memphis and doing same thing. After that so many cool things happened. Now I also went over and dropped off copies to Offbeat for review. That should be interesting of snorts. I really like Offbeat and what they have done for the musicians in new Orleans and thru out . I am not leaving quietly and so now i'm going down St Ann out to Jackson Sq for a little moment with St Louis and all us saints and sinners. I have a couple of new jams to play and get write before the new split cd is released from swampmuck. that another story. chilled to the bone I am today and you turned me on so now i'm cum'n straight fur da who dat momma with long red hair and fire in her eyes............................

Red White and Blues wit Lots of Mean GREEN !

So old UPS has my works of art in Hodgkins, IL, United States. I've never been there but did stay at a holiday inn express to see Dr. John A. Stoner, MD for red eye syndrome . I cant keep up with all the demands with running another indie records label. I wish I knew somebody who had experience with such things- oh well I'm a Scorpio and I can do anything. It looks like this weekend is going to be a party here at the studio for the new album. This album took way to long to produce. I can produce epic albums all day long on reverbnation. I've made millions on just " NEW JERSEY " and our charities are very happy with me. as promoter of local music I have to look at the big picture. the future of music is really over. this is a kick back to the old school. I really should have recorded the whole album on my old 8 track recorder that we used in the past. I miss those days. had to always hit a record store to buy tape. had to setup the mixers and mic's every single time. the process to record was so long. prepping the tape for recording. setting the ranges on the drums and bass. panning the vocals. double'd up guitar parts. mixing down 8 tracks to only 2 to add more sound effects and back up's. always a 9 volt attery issue would appear to stop us from jamming. mic's would nt be fully plugged in or a crusg cord is making a hissing sound. fuk. that sure asnt th case with the new LUVIS cd. I have to say the entire album was flawless for me. I guess its mainly because I remember what truly works and what needs to be left the fuk alone. The point is to get the story across to the listener. Like with NOSE E NEIGHBOR. U can bet from the song title what this track is all about. " Ur going tru wit it " and " Ur not allowed " tell a story faster than the nsa can hake your parents social seurtity acoount. Soon enough you know that this album will be listed on the FCC most wanted . I have never had a album like this one more feared and hated. Evil Luvis made several attempt but it didn't happen. I receieved more attention from my craigslist postings than from playing at a B Movie Celebration for 4 yrs in a row. I still get a huge hard on knowing that when I contacted the editor of Indianapolis's NUVO and told them " I was the first INDIANAPOLIS artist to upload over 100 videos mostly of original music - I never heard a word, yet I did like the issue that explained who was the most popular band in Indy going to play on David Lettermen that week. It been a wacky time behind the scene watching all this shit.Watching all the posurs and there love kittens walking around like where at CBGB'S On a Rolling Stone cover shoot. It is what it is. U have to laugh at this business. some people who have it and the people who used to have it. the record business only work in certain places. I coulnt sell a damn cd in NJ. It just didn't happen and the cost to make was insulting. Nowadays 7 yr old kids are selling there music over sea's with MTV styled videos in the millions of views. That's exciting. music it still the only business that has the ability to extend international borders without a permit. I often get a chuckle when I see a fan listen to my song in south korea or Pakistan . That's impossible for at least 95% of most business. I worked in construction for years and I was never asked to repair any grass huts in Hawaii, and let me tell I would have cause the hit brown shingle I had to install for the 99.9 percent of home owners was very depressing. Glad to be reCocring music with many colors. mostly I say the colors used on this ablum where RED WHITE AND BLUES with lots OF MEAN GREEN and some Black and Gold Bahahah its the truth. man I cant wait for football season, I heard this year Denver broncos are changen there colors to red green yellow with logos of Bob Marley ! MUSIC MEANS FREEDOM
