Product Description

Ludo is a Power-Pop Rock band from St. Louis, Missouri that is known for harmony-driven tunes with strong lyrics and an extensive touring schedule that has developed a solid fan base (known as Ninjas). This is Ludo's second full-length album and it was recorded in Los Angeles with Island Records and producer Marc McClusky. Ludo (the name of the giant muppet in the movie Labyrinth) has gone through a number of changes over the years. It started as a duo of lead vocalist and guitarist Andrew Volpe and guitarist Tim Ferrell, but has expanded to a five-piece group with Tim Convy on moog, bassist Marshall Fanciullo and drummer Matt Palermo. The band started out "armed with a van, two ferrets and a DIY three-song demo" in 2003. 12 tracks.

About the Artist

After four years of insane hard work, coast-to-coast survival touring, and endless trips back home to St. Louis, Island Records group Ludo claws their way to the top of the heap with "Love Me Dead," the first single and video from their major label album debut, YOU'RE AWFUL, I LOVE YOU, to be released on February 26th.

The day before, on February 25th, Ludo kicks off the release with a morning sit-down on St. Louis radio 105.7/The Point. The next day, three hours of "clerk" duty at Vintage Vinyl (3-6:00 p.m.) climaxes with an 8:00 live acoustic performance broadcast by The Point. It's the prelude to a month-long 18-city coast-to-coast road trip that opens with first-week retail CD release events in Kansas City (The Record Bar), Chicago (Reggie's, with Q101 radio support), St. Charles, MO (Slackers), St. Louis (The Pageant), and Columbia, (Slackers, KBBM radio support). Ludo hits the SXSW Conference on March 13th. The second half of March, Ludo will open shows for Presidents of the United States of America. (Please see complete tour below.)

It only takes one listen to catch the infectious "Love Me Dead," a cancerously parasitic love song to a romantic dead-end (with the first-verse throwaway line, "you're awful, I love you!"). The song has grabbed Modern Rock radio by the throat since it shipped one month ago today. Following its impact date this week, "Love Me Dead" jumped to #3-bullet (from #6) on the FMQB SubModern Specialty chart.Next week, the clip is part of mtvU's "freshmen 5" (where the winning video, as picked by viewers, receives an automatic add on mtvU).

Vigilante bushwhackers with a heart of gold, who are out to bang your psyche and love you dead - the five-man conspiracy known as Ludo was named by Alternative Press as one of the "Bands To Watch In 2007." YOU'RE AWFUL, I LOVE YOU was recorded over the course of eight weeks in Los Angeles with producer Matt Wallace (Maroon 5, Train, Faith No More). Described by the band's Andrew Volpe as their "healthiest, most-ten-toed musicbaby yet," the new album follows up its two indie predecessors - Ludo's self-titled debut album of 2003 (recorded in St. Louis, "in roughly 14 days"), and 2005's mini-album EP Broken Bride (on Redbird Records).Currently up to its 16th episode, the "Thing" now incorporates the `Toothbrush' video for "Love me Dead. In addition to tracks from their first two albums - "Hum Along" from Ludo; and "Pt. I: Broken Bride" from Broken Bride - the site also streams "Love Me Dead" and "Drunken Lament" from YOU'RE AWFUL, I LOVE YOU

Like many listening to this album for the first time, I was compelled to purchased it simply due to the fact that "Love Me Dead" hooked me (...the cheap price helped, too). With this hysterical diatribe against a girl who wronged him and yet still has her claws in his heart, Ludo made me laugh, smile and fall in love. It's one of the wittiest songs I've heard recently, with lyrics that twist expectations.

What follows this first diatribe is a collection of punk/pop-focused songs, most of which seem focused on love in its various forms. None of these ideas are really new or unique. You have the song about the guy who's trying to fend off a former love who spurned him, but his lower area is betraying him ("Mutiny Below") to the guy whose attention and obsession borders on stalking ("Go-Getter Greg") to drinking away the pain with "Drunken Lament," to name a few.

Then there are the songs that hearken back to their last album The Broken Bride. "Lake Pontchartrain" is a terrific song that showcases their zany story-telling qualities, with a dark yet funny story centered around this famous lake. Then there's the most unique song of the bunch, "The Horror of Our Love.

Following up the epic "Broken Bride" EP, Ludo's "You're Awful, I Love You," is a fantastic album. The band has a wonderful mix of humor and sincerity that combine to create a very entertaining album. The songs cover topic such as a lake that eats people (Lake Ponchartrain), the conflict between physical and emotional desires (Mutiny Below), creepy stalkers (Go-Getter Greg) and drunkenly pining over an ex (Drunken Lament), just to name a few.

The songs are all catchy with lyrics ranging from silly, "I was driving out of there as fast as a Camry could!" to touching, "Every Saint has a past, every Sinner has a future, so you know what keeps me hanging around." The music is energetic and listeners just can't help but sing along to the catchy tunes. Without a doubt, this is one of the best albums I've listened to in months and months! I tried to think of a few of the standouts, but they're all too good to choose just one or two. Listen to the samples above for yourself and prepare to be impressed!

I have been a Ludo fan since right Broken Bride came out. I fell in love with their music through their self titled albums hit Hum Along. You're Awful I Love You was a perfect follow up to Broken Bride. The passion and angst and darkness from BB and the light hearted humor from the self titled album are all rolled into to one bright orange packages that doesn't fail to amuse, move, or entertain.

Topeka is by far my favorite of the album. The lyrics and melodies charm you from the start. "I found God in a catalytic converter in Topeka on a Monday night." Lake P. houses the essence of Broken Bride but never fails to keep you amused as the narrator goes of on a wild tale about swamp creatures and the loss of friends in a lake.

Congrats Ludo!

This CD is one of the most poetic and lovely I've heard in ages. Not only are the humorous lyrics cutting (no pun intended) but even the words on the darkest cut, "The Horror of Our Love" flow and bite and weave with the music to create images that are both beautiful and ghastly at the same time. My favorite cut is "Lake Ponchartrain", a chilling, ghostly story of what happens if you dine on the wrong food on a stormy night. But it is tucked away so cleverly in the rhythms of the music that you need to pay attention. That is no difficult feat with the clear diction of Ludo's lead singer Andrew Volpe. It is seldon that I hear a song and can catch every word. I hope they do more songs like this! I listen to this CD nearly twice a day when I am at work. It helps the day go by on a more happy, upbeat note. You're Awful, I Love You

I heard the song "You're Awful, I Love You" for the first time on Best Buy's radio station in the store, and I was hooked at first listen. No, you're not going to find the world's most original sound, maybe not the most breath-taking musicians, but this music was just made to be fun and enjoyable, which it does VERY well. Catchy choruses and fun lyrics make it very easy to enjoy this band. Its the kind of music that will cheer you up when you're down, and you can tap your foot to as well.

I really enjoy this CD, its a very fun listen.

I love music, let that be said. I'm always looking for the next album to inspire me in my own creative endeavors. I heard "Love Me Dead" by Ludo on KROQ, in Los Angeles. I instantly loved the song, hearing notes of My Chemical Romance mixed with slight hints of Good Charlotte combined with...complete originality. Despite the fact that I'm normally a music fan who must be won over in order to purchase, I did buy the "You're Awful, I love You" album by Ludo to hear more. I'm not sure how I feel. There are moments of brilliance, as in the first track, "Love me Dead." In "Lake Ponchartrain" those slight, demonic, dark moments that are hinted at in "Love me Dead" become way more obvious and I was sold. In "The Horror of Our Love", I became a fan. I adore the dark, sardonic, cool and unapologetic moments of drama and goth rock that pop up throughout this album. Yet they're not enough. The CD has moments of brilliance; as I said, the CD alludes to hints of "My Chemical Romance" without the poseur personality of Gerard Way. There are songs that hit the chords or darkness, speaking to the Goth witin. These are the moments of genius, moments that should be stretched out, not sucked back into the void of crappy punk-lite music that Good Charlotte, Bowling for Soup or All American Rejects embodies. I think Ludo have the potential to reach for more, to find that dark-rock within but I think they're afraid of failure and so, at the pinicle of finding themselves, they become cowards, allowing their power chords and boring drum beats to define them instead. If they'd let themselves leak through, letting that bloody, beaten and awesome darkness come through, I think they could challenge My Chemical Romance, My Bloody Valentine and all of the other victors of Goth Rock for their crowns. I want Ludo to succeed but I really, really hope they realize their potential before they get sucked into the void of American-Idol land. Forget the poetic ballads, let the darkness ring forth!
