An Ailment and a Cure
Just as we were reminiscing about the greatness of Ludicra, it seems they are partially being brought back to life. Christy and Laurie started a new band called Ails that carries the spirit and torch of the Bay Area greats. The band posted the following demo on Soundcloud with little information or fanfare, but it’s absolutely mesmerizing. The familiar vocals are as comforting as they are deranged and the song twists and turns as you would expect from the fretboard magicians. Other than the two members, nothing is known about the band at this time. It’s tough not to get too excited about this, but it’s a welcome piece of news from a band that ended much too soon.
