By now you've all heard the news that SKY
BLUES has undergone some changes in its line-up. This is obviously
a major development, and has left us with a big decision -- do we continue
as SKY BLUES or change our name? Most bands
go through many such member changes in their careers, but this is significant
for us because we have always been the same four guys, back from the very
first time we stood on our High School stage those many years ago, all
the way through recent heights we never guessed we would reach. It is for
this reason that we have decided, out of respect for the line-up that SKY
BLUES always was, to not continue under that name.
But that does NOT mean we aren't continuing!
and Cliff Rubin are very proud and excited
to bring you OMEGA
BABY. Visit the OMEGA
BABY website to check out
archived news, songs in Real Audio, band photos, and more.
Of course, skyblues.com will
continue; there are still going developments regarding Sky Blues,
with which the site will be updated as news comes in. Sky Blues Merchandise
will continue to be stocked in stores, and available at new lower prices
through this site, and now also at Amazon.Com.
Once again, we thank you for your continued interest
and support in our music!

SKY BLUES GOES HOLLYWOOD!!
SKY BLUES will be heard
on the soundtrack to a new independent film entitled "CRIMSON
LIGHTS." This Base Films production,
a spoof of MTV's reality programming, has just finished principal photography
and is currently in the post-production phase. The SKY
BLUES tracks "WINTER DAY" and "SKELETON" will be featured in
scenes in the film, which should hit art-houses and film festivals later
this year. We will keep you posted on its release!
NMG/PAVEMENT RECORDS RE-RELEASES
THE T.REX TRIBUTE!
the album's new cover art
OF THE WARLOCK: A TRIBUTE TO MARC BOLAN AND T. REX, the 20-song
tribute to the late British rock legend, has just been re-released by NMG
/ PAVEMENT RECORDS, and finally will be receiving full national distribution.
BLUES performs the track "CHARIOT CHOOGLE," a song originally
found on the classic 1972 T. REX album
THE SLIDER. On the tribute,
BLUES is in the esteemed company of artists like The Smithereens,
of The Mekons, and many others. In addition, we are honored
that we were chosen to be the opening track on the CD, and picked by the
label as a suggested radio cut. Whether a fan of SKY BLUES
or T. REX, this is a must-have disc. Check
your local record store, and for a preview of "CHARIOT CHOOGLE"
