Luke Jenner / Lightning's Girl
Stairway To Heaven 8:03 Led Zeppelin -Led Zeppelin IV - classic rock was king if you grew up listening to radio in the '70s and '80s. Luke is 36 so be exposed to classic rock as a kid was the norm.


The Wizard 4:21 Black Sabbath - Symptom of the Universe: “A big contention point with us (bass player Matt -v- Luke) was that with the last record I got really into heavy metal. The two things that really influenced that record for me the fact that I got really into the Uli Jon Roth period of Scorpions and I got really into Depeche Mode. Matt just hated heavy metal, hating Black Sabbath and all this stuff that I kind of grew up on. I mean I grew up in the grunge era; I loved bands like Helmet and Therapy? “- Luke

The Sails Of Charon 4:24 Scorpions -Gold - :Rapture frontman Luke Jenner is a big fan of the Scorpions. Jenner calls "the missing link between Sabbath and Metallica in the evolution of rock," even though "they get NO respect." It's a slightly odd or at least surprising area of focus for a man of Jenner's station, but 1978's Taken By Force (his favorite of them all) features a few little vocal yelps and peals of guitar that one can imagine Jenner laying down on a Rapture record. There's an insistent throb and thump in "Sails of Charon," too, that could do damage to a dance floor given the right vibe." eMusic

Disarm 3:17 Smashing Pumpkins -Siamese Dream 1993 - when indie broke into the mainstream culture – impressionable on people Luke’s age.

No Surprises 3:48 Radiohead -OK Computer - Many Echoes reviews mention radiohead – “I grew up in the era of grunge where you had Kurt Cobain, I read every Nirvana book to see how it was done, how they made it. I loved Billy Corgan and Black Francis and the first John Lennon solo record. There’s the whole idea that in order to make something that beautiful you have to go through a horrible experience and it has to be excruciatingly painful. I feel that that’s not true” -Luke

Loser 3:55 Beck -Mellow Gold - 1993 -huge while Luke and Vito in their teens - west coast - Beck also cross pollinates many genres - alternative to alternative

In Between Days 2:58 The Cure- The Head On The Door - Luke is forever compared to vocalist robert smith - especially on early records

Notes 2:12 The Rapture - Mirror - 1999 debut on gravity records - angsty - dark - goth - dance art punk

I Don't Want To Be Happy 3:22 James Chance -Twist Your Soul - no wave with a sax - 2003 Echoes - Gabriel Andruzzi plays sax on the Rapture records.Can't talk post punk and sax and not mention this artist.

Smells Like Teen Spirit 5:02 Nirvana - Nevermind An almost unavoidable anthem pick for an alternative kid growing up in the early 90s.

Ditch Digger 4:50 Rocket From The Crypt -Circa: Now! – “I started going to all ages shows; getting into Rocket From the Crypt and buying lots of cassette demos of local bands no one remembers except for me. “ - Luke

Peanut Butter 2:29 Fluf -Mangravy - records on cargo - San Deigo's answer to grunge movement that pitchfork / rocket / drive like Jehu / screamo bands on Gravity

Death to Dead Things 2:57 Trumans Water -The Peel Sessions – more San Diego goodness - "Truman’s Water were like the four dorkiest kids in high school but they had a shit load of energy. The first time I saw them there were only two or three people there, yet they put everything they had into it. It was quite inspiring.” - Luke
