I woke this morning and the sun was gone closed my eyes and she slip'd away. Got so much to do before the big show this weekend at the Abbey. I have played a couple of cool bars but this bar is the best so far ! top dog treatment is the reason we play our hearts out each time. I think the last time there i made my left hand bleed. cutting those strings baby like your very first time. So the jams will undoubty be awesome since we are coming off a hell ride of past summer jams at the forbidden warehouse. now closed until further notice- bastard ! as hairs on back POP up so does 1 simple rule of the musical day, now listen closely to what i say on this sunny day. it just matter what ur going thru cause I'm gonna bring you back down to planet earth when your asked to play your part in the history of the world. I live in history that most Americans have forgotten. I can say this circus of key signatures from the beatles to agent orange is how to keep the system that we all live in FREE. Thank god us musicians are not trying to kill ourselves over the music like we used to. Most of the musicians today have the clues map'd out already. It all about breaking out your lil old street and dropping it out in another country u have never been to. We all get together when we have some spare time and than we are all made to get to together when some tragic happens - sucks . 25 yrs ago i was in Memphis. sweet harmony & southern love. it was nirvana . i could smell her teen spirit ! This town of new orleans has a way of making you see your past present and future while in deep on the fly transcription & accidental methodology . the current compositions are teaching me that as i see a rebirth of part and present styles that haven't changed, but the 1 simple trick has - a that getting your money in your hand from the front door ! $5 bucks stamp'd in mirage red . I must be dreaming on my last day off before having to back on tour for the shows ! the promotional river sessions can be endless. hrs of playing makes my hands cramp up as the cool air engulfs the sun and crescent moon. i hear texts in the back ground but i'm still playing the solo baby. this stretch on word notes makes my st ann street blues feel like black roses . Maybe this tour is time to unless the 50's Stewart custom axe of luv. Tons of feed back wit that chuck berry look ru that into the marshall amp with the mxr distortion pedal dod delay pedal and cry baby wha wha - use the pedal board for vocal delays and just trip out like jerry garcia did at giants stadium 1999 NJ daze. selling cd's and tapes all night long lookinf for that miracle ticket . Man i could be on the first flight home my little rox ann in the back of the home place shed , u dont have to put on that red light ! u just show up all slick and smooth and show me that thriller smile. the fireplace is wanting for siren to go off any minute. So the show starts at 9:00 pm sunday nite at the Abbey so dont be late and i will wait to have our usual toast to our family with that bottle of fireball as we play all the hits from the 20's 30's 40's 50's 60's 70's 80' 90' & today bahahahahahahahahahhha life is but a dream dream on bro thanks for all your support ! take a break and roll 1 ! Music means freedom
its a CoCo Vine Raspberry Chocolate kinda morning with a bit of cherry pepsi . Clouds move the sun in and out of my eyes as my guitar gently sweeps. with bogers flying out my nose I reached to upload the newest demo track # 51 to the swampmuck demo site for further review. It a ska thrash jam with a real nice lyrics that runs thru out the mix. kinda like the jamaican Fruit insense that mingles around the studio here during the mid city break in the st john bayou. This is my Friday Night pre game show concerto time in space. so with this new song i wrote come the new album of songs, demos really , that have that 1 simple catch. like a favorite fishing hole all u need is 1. 1 is the number here. I track, 1 mike, 1 beat, 1 rhythem, 1 scream, 1 smile, 1 memory, 1 cock ring to rule them all bahaha. So like that hemp over there under the metal halide getting stronger day by day so does my songs of old. I will take a 57 chevy over a 2014 Corvette any day of the week. Just like the Double Duce of Disaster ,tracked back in 2006 in home place Ind while my baby was born to today here on Myspace - https://myspace.com/luvis0/music/songs bahahaha .... its all about taking yer time and having fun doing so. Lately the world is making us seem outa touch. I get lost with every passing text. I hear and see things more now that the new Luvis 25 Yrs cd is out there. I laugh at how i recorded these song with zero production. that a first man. It like driving a convertible with no clothes on. I always wanted to just release it the way i should be and not some over polished bloody twisted turd where Oh lets add more vocal harmonies to that 1 song were you fuked up the guitar solo in track 3/54 cause the strings were not number 10's but u use 12's and the mix is hot and the sound guy is booting up heroin with your girlfirends mom who used to be a singer down in New Orleans. geesh i'm over it. new tracks are endless fuckups! wow thats it , new band " the FUCK UPs " with the new song " what the fuck is going down" on fuck it all records where u can see some of the songs but not all cause your the FUCK UP who bough this shity album. bahahaha that its I have a new band. that fucking simple. lust like the song ST ANN STREET BLUES is all about keeping the music in yer heart. its about remembering a time and place. the moments you turn to me and said " I cant ____ with u tonight Mark cause ur ____ ___ and my _________ might get ___ ! ahhhhhh so looking forward to mmeting up with the BLOB SNARLY gang and playing the sept 5th show outside under the stars at " THE END OF THE WORLD " I have the honer of bringing out the old Marshall amp. I have had this amp since i was in High School 1987. Man some good times came blasting into this amp for me and its all because i had a small gig to play with some friends on Memorial day weekend. holy shit - we played Metallica slayer, dri, suicidal tendencies, anthrax shit those were the daze bro. reminds me of UR GOING THRU WIT IT. I did go thru wityh it and now sick and tired of it and your not happy for me but i know 1 thing and i'm GONNA BRING YOU DOWN ! music mean freedom !
Please laugh at my funeral someday. I figure i have another 100 or so yrs left on this circle of dirt before i am rescued by my mother planet. It goes without saying i am nuts. how can i not be. the world is nuts. so i uploaded a song to youtube.com/luvispro , a video .... " HIT THE BONG" not the cypress hil song but the luvis hit the bong. recorded back in Broad Ripple Indiana waiting for wendy to come home. i had the 8 track tascam setup and i picked up the guitar and just started to jam. I used a boss 808 drum machine for the beat. it was a demo track. Now some 12 yrs later i just upload a version of it from the Louisiana Music Factory show last week or so. the song has been played alot. I love the song cause its my ode to my country and western lifestyle. born in jersey makes ya a either or. I am the or. so HIT THE BONG is out there on this site and that site. Its a starting point song for me. After yrs of depression for me. I battle my mental illness daily. There was a time when i just didnt record anything. I stopped playing all together. I left new jersey with zero guitars back in 2002. I was just so over it. I just though fuck you guitar. I smashed my signed autographed Aerosmith guitar on the streets on new jersey after a bad mood swing. I am so blessed now cause i survived the downfall of my life. I derailed and turned the train around and now i'm roaring down the tracks tootin my own horn . HIT THE BONG was the first song i recorded after reliezing i can redo my life over. I fell and got up and have been on my feet ever since. When i moved to Indiana, I just didnt have any clue about how the music would the reason i would be leaving. the music i made my whole life was 1 sided. now i write songs that are a double edge sword. thats fuckin life. I could say nothing. I could just be like most and say very little about my stuff and act like my time in the game was a joke or maybe i should act like somebody else did me wrong ? bagagaga Ya see i blame my self for all this. I blame it all on me. OK there are some who deserve a mention. as we all bow our heads for those who lost there musical lives today i will say just sing and dance at my funeral. This cold can of beer is calling my name. that guitar over there wants my love. the amps are all cold. The american express card you left at my house is now my guitar pick hahahaha Here's a song for all of you its a basic d-g-a- jam o.k. 4/4/ time 120 bpm o.k. is everybody ready - ahhhhhhh I just hit the bong, my days been crazy and minds still gone, as i move along another fuk'd up day in this crazy place..............
" a good fella from the old block " is da truth when i speak of some who have my back on and off the stage. I can only brag for so long than i must hand over the mike to somebody else who will undoubltly droubt your skull into the heavy metal ground. It was 25 yrs ago on a day like this that i was about to go to y fave bar " Hoovers". I wer in MT Tabor over loooking the old indian rock walls and said " I am packing my northern bags for some southern charms laced in bbq sauce with a touch of tremolo down in Memphis ". To which i oh the pleasure is bass player tony b from when this story comes flashbacking around again. so we both sat there drinking our cold drinks about to hit the train tracks when we decided to go down there record in the finest studios and make 1 hell of a record. Fuk yeah we did ! hell i have at least 50 rock gems for all to hear out there on the reverbnation.com/myrage1990 page. Memphis was a hoot and hot as hell the first yr as we help to create the most powerful computer company " Daisy Tek ". Those daze were filled with working hard and playing harder, and they worked the fuk outa us. The best was when we recorded tools of the trade and lords of mischief at " The Control Room " with Jimmy Enwright engineering... the fucken sound is so heavy man ! were we on fire ! we had this amazing practice room off Perkins rd over by RAKSTRAWS grocery store ! man those daze were great. sex drugs rock and roll came out that building. I miss that place minute by minute. I could write an entire blog to the AAPLIANCE JAM ROOM ! Fuk... so Old tony did me a solid yrs later. almost 25 yrs later. he calls me and makes me laugh about our time down there in SOUTH PARK !...... Thanks bro for all that - i need it ! the current tempo is always a lil hot and i need to slow it down. I live in the big easy and yet i am running full speed most of the time. I gotta slow down. let life show me something i can laugh at with this old gitar in my hand. Now Sept 5th Blob Snarly and crew play at the " END OF THE WORLD " an old door event with the river and endless train tracks..... come out and party with us. Now old fatboy reminded me of the time we played out doors in this field in muddsippy 1 gorgus day and how much fun we all had. it was a real cheesburger in paradise kinda day ! bahahahah great stuff i tell. thats really why i love playing music i think, Just to rehash the stories and tell some new ones. The kids seem to like hearing them. Its all about the kids. No child left behind ! MUSIC MEANS FREEDOM !
# 9 ? I must be off my rocker. I have to calm down. I get very excited over disruption and distortion. My echo is a giant empty vessel. I look to the heavens for answers but only see f16's in formation. I turn to see a new cloud but see only a pack of drones. I am terrified that the nazi party will do it again and make music againest the law . IT COMMING so bet when i say it. History is repeating itself like a blues beat in 4/4 time. The fact that i only see MUSIC as a form of freedom is what you should be worried about. Just as the slaves sang songs of freedom, the new illegal crossing the American boarder is now singing sweat songs of freedom. without a song to guild you where might you go in life ? For over 25 yrs i bean riting songs but latly all my songs are filled with hate or just plain negitive. THANK GOD i have Jah to show me the songs i need to play and all those other get toss'd into the big trash can in the sky. I could probadly start a deth metal band tonite with all the song i have about sex drugs and rock and roll over or i'm gonna shoot you - lay down...lay down ! fire FIRE FIRE FIRE FIRE 10X PULL OUT ANOTHER PISTOL AND KEEP SHOOTING ME !!!!!!! The fact is i'm just not intimidated by all this sheety music . I just seem to be watching and tellin ya what i see. I do plan on being that 1 guy walking down the street holdin my guntar and the AMERICAN flag in the other while bullets fly over my head from all sides cause i'm a TARGET and I LOVE IT ! BULLEYES LUVIS is gonna b my new nickname from now on - I'm just over all the injustice going on in my homeland. first ya take my rights, than you take my guns, than you take my vote, than you take my truck, than u take my love of it all and now U THINK U CAN TAKE MY FAMILY ! MY FAMILY IS MY MUSIC. MY FAMILY HAS ALWAYS BEEN MUSICIANS ! US IN THE LUVIS FAMILY DONT PRETEND! WE DONT RETREAT ! WE DONT SURRENDER ! WE JUST SHRED AND SOLO OVER ur stupid new world order beats while IMPROVISING on the spot like a jedi ninja. I am having 1 hell of a great day - the highs and lows are keeping my blood pressure up and my tunings far below the great whale bellows. Today I wish to Thanks everyone on Reverbnation who r with me and support my music. life is short and so am i. i wish you all the best today on stage and behind the mixing board. life is good ! fuk all this nonsense and go record something and release it to the world. do something or you will do something for somebody else ! by the way the weather is like 90 something, the sky is blues and i love my Girls ! MUSIC MEANS FRREDOM
Hey Reverbs I sit here at the studio brain washed with new songs wit dat super natural melody line that only i can cross. I have been to the cross roads and was almost ran over but i just kept walking and never looked back. It tough to make a stand these days. When i was a younger man my in-stinks were a lil off. I used my little head to think for my big head. I made love songs with some sweet country rhythms but add'd to many spices and everything went sour. Now that I just played the L.A. Music Factory and watch the video i see a new me. A new luvis is emerging. Much the same way the fall and winter months are comming. Cold winds will blow snow drifts into your g clef. Dont worry about the " what ifs " anymore seeing how we are all being watched and listened to but NOBODY wants do anything anymore. welcome to freedom. I used to be told i couldnt play guitar over there. Mark dont play that song ! Luvis you shouldnt sing that ! hey everybody I LOVE YA BUT ITS ALL A LIE ! 25 yrs of playing music making songs cursing farting puking fuking getting busted on the run on the lamb down by the river under the bridge flippin off the system throwing signs to the fuzz, throwin bodys to the ground, smashing limbs, slicen thoats being assaulted, false flag attacks, marshall amps dr pepper navarro handmade cigars myrage woodro evil luvis and the 420 production suicide solution . the whole system is way to much. that why on SEPT 5TH 2014 the Bands here in New Orleans will gather atthe Warehouse to play music that screams real freedom ! real AMERICAN ROCK ! KILLER MUSIC ! I do alot of this for my own gilty pleasure but i always seem to touch and teach somebody the truth about music ! thats what its all about ! music is the only thing that matters ! make love not war but be prepared for both ! xoxoxoxoxox
Hey Satchmo its a Party Over here in the Luvis world of tings bings and chicken rings. With only a few hrs to practice for the Blob Snarly shows I sit across from an empty bottle of expensive whiskey with dark eye telling me to go promote and distribute or die like punk bitch on the fringes of the river. LUVIS is going with full intent to commit shredding of an electric instrument. It how I roll the dice honey, whats wrong with your facebook u never smile anymo . No worry on this day as rent is paid and my girls speak only love for me, my biggest defenders of my freedom. I keep outa new jersey this is alldat matters and I live to tale the tall tails. got so much to do on this mountain morning. gonna hit the river banks for some cool breeze's later while playing " my little fireball or nose e neighbor " it must be done or u'll she'' b ask'n me to " fix the toilet " . ahhhh shit its so nice to see my name up on the wwoz website. its official now. this new cd " luvis 25 yrs " is a formula of abstracts + opticals with musical fractions = LUVISPRO aka LUVIS PRODUCTIONS. NoW its almost 25 yrs ago today I wer sittin on a loading dock in Memphis laughing with our lawyers over copyrights and the library of congress with the co conspiricer of MYRAGE -Texas Tom when we add'd the new word into the world known as LUVIS....IT wasn't soon after that it all exploded like a fart on the tip of Uranus. its a shame but I feel your pain. SO here go again some 25 sec from mars later. It almost like my friend cata clismick . she was livin with 3 other in there .....reefers .....MUSIC MEANS FREEDOM ! XOXOXOXOXOXOXO :-)
it ant cheap livin in the big easy , it is cheap to record your music here. big easy does it round here in july is how we go today. ya she's a total hotty in her lilly whites. it my day to promote SWAMPMUCK Records. I usally go to Jackson Sq with my cd's and gitar . sell ya the shirt off my crack back. as i sit in the middle of it all I ponder the yonder and i'm very amused by all the confusion and such going on. Theres a show next frieday nite with blob snarly , mea culpa and the repellers. As long as members of the bands dont go to jail - fuk ! its all good. SO LATELY i have been thinking of songs i recorded back in the yr 1989. some of those songs were created during & while in the aftermath from MI. troubles abound for young mark. no band and no gigs along with no songs and no direction made me do some crazy things. I did write some songs that made no sense than - but know make all the sense. AS i moved outa the ST ANN studio and now creating the DUMAINE ST STUDIO , i am finding it harder and harder to create music. I have to always had to break down my studios just as i am getting them to record music. I am not a happy camper to have to always change my situations. still i have all the gear and the man with the most tools always wins Wrestle'n with my demons can be a damn distraction so with that i am leaving for the bayou. to shake my head and wonder. to listen to the sounds of crickets and secadas . fuk it for now. i will she my girl later on. the house will be full ths week with the arrival of grandma, she doesnt jam but is a pure inspiration for me when writing death metal songs. good times u bet, bad luck ya i know him, karma is a bitch and murphys law is what i just wrote about - have a great day everybody - MUSIC MEANS FREEDOM !
let me tells ya a lil story a long time back in 1990 I wer still livin in nj an I had just got back from musicians institute before I begin I must say its nice to be back online ) I was studing all types of music. I love nj/nyc BUT .... So was getting into jazz and really loved django stuff and this other guy named Joe Pass. so I heard he was a jersey guy and still played. so I get around the few jazz guys in my hood ( gus ) and we go in search of Joe. Now I had a bunch of albums and sheet music from hal lernard about ho wto play like Joe Pass. I of course didn't get A'S at MI for sight readin and I needed a lot of help. So one nite in NYC I head over from my West 4th st hangout to the Bluenote. Holy Cow JOE PASS is on a calendar date. So I drop the $50.00 bucks an get my seat reserved. I luv NYC for this. NITE of show an its a packed house. I am wearing my finest dive bar attire amoungest the tux's. ok. I order a beer and it came to me in a LG glass ? o.k. My girlfriend didn't want to go. o.k. shagging myself to table #5 I sit and wait with tablature in hand of these songs and there substitutions in #/flat bhahaha, such a rookie ! luv it - all this flash backing thankx to wwoz radio today 7-16-2014 :-) ... so Joe appears with a greascth and whails in my face like a madman, the sweetest guitar runs EVER...I shook my head in amazement more than in time with his crazy rhythms, rite ! alright !

It Official - LUVIS 25 YRS is now avail to all via iTunes . Fuk yeah again - Thanks to Discmakers & cdbaby.com LUVIS is now on track to a huge summer of partys and jam's. now let me tell ya a little story. I used to operate a Construction business. All day I would try to sell folks the bet materials for the job. I would always get shot down with inferior materials because the cost is to high. than we would walk away at the end of the job saying " I wish I had did that " . people are weird in the home improvements business - free estimates suck - fuck u and you free estimate ! so with that story come the story of me telling you that this new Cd is the bomb. Discmakers is the bomb. Cdbaby is the bomb. iTunes is just another hand grenade . I didn't expect so much from so little. I don't mean to be short with ya but size matters when dealing with music. I give you 38 minutes of the best I can offer at 44 yrs old. My instrument has been thru a lot of stages. I watched my lil axe pound , 2 3 maybe 4 sho's a week. IT gets very hard to concentrate with all the music in my head. I see musical passages in my eyes that connects with the stars and planets which directs me the mainline of time and space. Only a few of us left who can do it. most of us jersey guys were killed of during the the 1990's drug wars between NYC and the NJ fractions. I miss my Friends / Musicians - I blame who ever is in charge at the opium fields over sea's cause " you cant grow it here " ! Was talking to a fiend of mine last night who is going out to do a major concert in Denver with some rappers , he said "the music is all that matters anymore". SO fukking true. WIT DAT I would like to THANK YA'LL once again for all the kind emails , postx, comments and love I get around the web and please take a listen and download the new album its now avail on iTunes key words " LUVIS 25 YRS " https://itunes.apple.com/album/25yrs/id885537762?v0=9989&ign-mpt=uo%3D1 XOXOXOXOX L.U.V.I.S.
