Rex ?

Unread postby tideeyed » Thu Sep 15, 2005 3:37 pm

I have been listening to a song called ..."other james" from a band called rex.
I do believe Ben was in this band, yet that is about all I know.

I have actually had it for a while now, but lately, I have been listening to it alot.

Anyone know the lyrics?

How about a little background on rex. It would be mucho-appreciated.

Thanx for your time.

I don't think Ben was in Rex, however the band Loftus was Red Red Meat and Rex together. Doug Scharin the Rex drummer has been in several bands released on the Perishable label. While the band HiM sounds nothing like Rex it is highly recomended. And as mentioned before Phil Spirito has moved on to oRSo.
Anybody know what Curtis Harvey has been up to? He seems to have dropped off the musical earth.

While you're stocking up on Scharin goods, treat yourself to the White Birch album by Codeine.
I thought Hugo had mentioned Curtis was working on an album for Perishable...but that was a few years ago.

last i heard, curtis was spending most of his time concentrating on photography. the last record i think you can here him perform on is the 2nd album from a band called pullman (members of rex, tortoise, come and maybe one other band.) incidentally, i think curtis did the photos on that record. pick it up, it's a goodie.
