Pat decided it was time to bring modern production and an assortment of excellent musicians to some of his favorite Blow-Up songs. The result is the Condor's new EP "Joie De Vivre" available now on Big Stir Records via CD Baby. Go HERE to check it out.
This six-song mini album is a upbeat, classic rock and roll, with an edgy side of pop on top. Jody joined in the fun and contributed some vocals, too. "Matter of Fact" is one of the best unreleased Blow-Up song so if you've never heard it, check it out on this album.
Pat's been doing interviews behind the release and it's already getting airplay on some of the best power pop and alternative pop rock online stations and blogs.
Every wondered what it was like to see a Blow-Up live show? In addition to our Bootleg Series, you can see exactly what was played at dozen of our shows with the addition of setlists to the Gig Listing page. Check out what we played when we opened for The Replacements and Billy Idol or what was on our punk-ish setlist for gigs at legendary venues, The Mabuhay Gardens Gardens and the Masque.
Many thanks to Jody for compiling all the setlists.
If my math is right, Blow-Up played Club 88 eleven times back in the day. And we got to share the stage for those gigs with great L.A. bands like The Plimsouls and Backstage Pass.
I stumbled across this page today that has a lot of fun memories about the place. Check it out.

Wonderful piece about Pat and Michael playing in The Sloths with a little mention of our collaboration in Blow-Up.
Thanks to our good friend, Tim, there's a new ad for the Troubadour from 1979(!) in the photo album.

The Missing Loot is available today for digital download from CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon and the usual suspects.
Previously unreleased studio and live rarities we came across listening to old tapes for the bootleg series, brought to you at a discount price. Some songs that never got their due, some that didn't get properly recorded, plus some cool alternate takes. The sort of precious detritus and grimy gems we used to pay big bucks for on "unofficial recordings" of our most beloved bands and artists. This is one Blow-Up style.
