Luke Jenner / Lightning's Girl
Out Of The Races And Onto The Tracks 4:05 The Rapture -Out Of The Races - 2001 sub pop - height of the post punk soun in the indie underground

Poptones 7:50 Public Image Ltd. - Second Edition - often mentioned as an obvious / key influence and often compared to.

Fat Lady Wrestlers 3:25 Happy Mondays -Bummed – “My mum was severely emotionally ill and my grandmother took her own life as well, she walked out into the ocean in Swansea to escape from a mental institution. My mum was British and my family is from Wales, so that always had a big influence on me, I was always aware of British artists like David Bowie and all that kind of stuff. It was on a different level to the average kid from San Diego because my mum was English and very proud of it. She was born in Bristol. " - Luke . Influence - "Techno-derived ecstasy-riddled late ‘80s Madchester hipsters the Happy Mondays also proved to be effectual instigators. Just listen to acid house sound “Heaven” for solid proof. But what The Rapture may have benefited from mostly was the British rave scene’s uplifting devotional unity” - beermelodies

It's A Mugs Game 5:25 Soft Cell- The Very Best Of Soft Cell - compared to more in recent years

Movin' On Up 3:51 Primal Scream- Screamadelica “I loved the idea of the album ‘Screamadelica’, the idea that you could go everywhere, that’s the kind of sprawling music that I loved like the first Roxy Music record which was just all over the map and The Beatles as well.” - Luke

Rocket U.S.A 4:18 Suicide -s/t 1977 -" Listening to their self-titled 1977 debut from the vantage point of late 2002, it's all so obvious: the synthpop, techno, and industrial dance sounds of the '80s and '90s, and now the new New Wave of electroclash, all gesture back to that foundational album."

House Of Jealous Lovers 5:05 The Rapture -Echoes - 2003 With the help of the DFA production team, (. DFA Records is an independent record label and production team, launched in September 2001 by Mo' Wax co-founder Tim Goldsworthy, musician James Murphy (of LCD Soundsystem)] and manager Jonathan Galkin.[2] The label has an exclusive distribution deal with major record label EMI.[3] DFA Records began on a series of 12" single vinyl releases starting with The Rapture's "House of Jealous Lovers" and The Juan Maclean's "By The Time I Get To Venus". ) The band recorded "House of Jealous Lovers" in 2003 and eventually released their first full-length album Echoes. Gabriel Andruzzi joined the band full time after the record was completed to help tour. The Rapture opened for the Sex Pistols in a soccer stadium in England, and underwent a large major bidding war eventually signing with Universal Music. - Wiki

“We wanted to go a few steps further to find their broader based influences. We used guitars so it came out like Liquid Liquid. It was more of a subliminal or subconscious thing. A band like Public Image Ltd. was drawing from dub music. I liked no wavers DNA and Arto Lindsay’s full on Latin take. So we draw from all those influences. But with Echoes, we really tried to make straight up house music. The vocals to “Olio” sound like The Cure, but we were trying to emulate early Chicago house records with the 909 drum machine and 202 bass machine.” – Luke


No Way Back - Adonis 4:58 Adonis - Chicago Trax - Volume - Adonis is a Chicago acid house pioneer who made his name with the classic 1986 tracks 'No Way Back' and 'We're Rockin Down The House'.

Move Your Body - Marshall Jefferson and On The House 7:43 - Jefferson's 1986 single for Trax, "Move Your Body (The House-Music Anthem)," the first house song to use piano,[3] was a popular and influential song in the genre. Lead single How Deep Is Your Love from Raptures most recent recalls the heady days of piano-led Chicago house a la Marshall Jefferson and is pure classic disco in the very, very best sense of the phrase. Hands in the air / tears in your ears". - cheeseontoast.com

The Kneeling Drunkard's Plea 2:53 Louvin Brothers -Satan Is Real

"Yeah. I got really into gospel and its big, uplifting vocals. That's what I'm trying to do on 'How Deep Is Your Love' or 'Come Back to Me,' or even 'In the Grace of Your Love' — it's my interpretation of gospel music. Some of those songs are prayers, literally. The subject matter is bigger than myself and trying to communicate with that universe, or whatever you want to call it: God. Being in the church choir was really cool -- I got involved with some cool music." - Luke

His Hand In Mine 3:15 Elvis Presley- Elvis Ultimate Gospel Gospel

How I Got Over - Clara Ward 2:58 Clara Ward -The History of Black Gospel Volume 2 - "One of the first gospel artists that really hit me was Clara Ward. She has a voice similar to my range. She was Aretha Franklin's hero and who she was trying to emulate." - Luke
