The Living Blue
Like another band recently featured on C&T, Headlights, The Living Blue are from Champaign, Illinois. They are signed to Minty Fresh Records, and are currently on tour supporting their newest release titled Fire, Blood, Water (2005). Formerly known as The Blackouts, the band earned national attention by excelling in Little Steven’s Underground Garage Battle of the Bands before releasing their current album. Interestingly enough, my first exposure to them was as the music playing on Joe's MySpace profile. It was the opening chords to "Serrated Friend" that first piqued my interest, and I've since ordered the album.
The Living Blue - Serrated Friend
The Living Blue - Tell Me Leza
