Louis XIV may have broken up and gone separate ways for the time being, but all is not lost. Singer/guitarist Brian Karscig has started a new band, called The Nervous Wreckords. Not ironically, the song I have playing right now, Similar But Not the Same, is a great description of the sound compared to Louis XIV. In other words, it has the overall nuance of classic rock, with an updated sound. It’s not quite Rolling Stones meets Led Zeppelin meets Pink Floyd meets The Beatles, like Louis XIV had going on, but it’s good stuff nonetheless.
Their first album is called Valuminium, and you can pick up the MP3 download version on Amazon right now for less than six bucks.
