As you know, the SHB are playing two Hometown gigs this weekend in Denver, Colorado. I was contacted by Reg Whitehead (I guess he’s a financial consultant who’s working with the band’s management) and he invited me to the shows! I’ll be posting updates upon my return. Wish me luck!
Again, congrats to the SHB for its recent #1 single, City of Lights in the Dark”. Here’s what I’ve learned about the band’s newest single. After a long hiatus (and Chris’s Peppy Flavors EP), the band inched back together to record Consider The Stars. In a recent email exchange with SHB’s drummer, I learned Steve F. was […]
What do you think of SHB’s funky new song “Psychosassic”? I personally dig it. Word on the street is that Christopher House wrote the lyrics and music after reading Douglas Adams’ book Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. I’m sure we can expect “Psychosassic” to make its live debut on the upcoming Capture the Flag tour!
The long wait is over! The Staton-House Band’s eighth album, Consider the Stars, is out now! I’ve been listening for the past week or so and I gotta say it now. It’s flat out stunning. Definitely creeping up the all time rankings of SHB albums. Along with the first single, “COLITD”, I am really loving […]
SHB Is back with a vengeance! Their first single, “City of Lights In the Dark” from Consider the Stars has hit #1 on iTunes. I’m very excited for the band (and especially songwriter Steve F.). I just have one burning question. Where’s the 7″ single? vinyl baby… – Finger
The band’s first single of Consider the Stars is out now! “City of Lights in the Dark” is the first songwriting contribution from drummer Steve F. That’s sure a sign that the band is hitting on all cylinders and there troubled past is behind them.
We got the track listing late last month and now we have the album art! This gorgeous design is courtesy of Christopher House, Rick Bayless and (longtime) friend of the band, Dan Manutsitch. Does the bear motif signify that the band is really comfortable living in California these days and wants to show the Golden […]
The Blue and the Black is pleased to exclusively announce the final track listing for the Staton-House Band’s 8th Studio album, Consider the Stars! City of Lights In the Dark Psychosassic Let Me Feel Your Pain Consider The Stars A Dream a Minute Losing Ground Capture the Flag Shelled Tesla’s Lovers Ivy Some great titles […]
The rumors are true! A new Staton-House Album is on the horizon. I have word from a source close to the band that they are in the studio (The Village Studios) and the songs are flowing. I’m hearing song titles such as “Pain”, “Ivory”, “City of Lights” “Sarah’s Secret” and “Losing Ground”. The wait is almost […]
As a longtime fan of the Staton-House Band, I thought a more exhaustive site (than the paltry official site) would be warmly received. This site replaces my previous Joy Motel blog (as Tom Staton’s dad has secured that name and URL…) “Shifting sands, holding hands, everything is new.” -“Happenstance” from Alexander Street I’m well qualified as […]
