Hi folks,
For those of you who don’t know Bob Lucier, don’t know what you’ve missed thru the years and for those of you who do know him know him as a great person and a very talented musician. 
I’ve known Bob for a great many years now and consider him a very good friend.
But, the main reason I am here is to tell you about Bob’s new CD. He sent me a preview copy and I am very impressed.  He is like a great wine, he gets better with age.
Bob, I think the CD is great and it’s one that everyone should have in their “play all of the time”
collection. I know it will be in mine. Good luck with your continued success.
“God Bless”…John Hughey

02  fortune
03  the pain
04  impossible
05  my worst mistake
06  life in a small town
07  the road

The Sound of Static
: 2005

Band :
MAT DREW – Lead Vocals, Percussion
RYAN “Julio” ODETTE – Guitars, Vocals
DAVID MAJOR – Drums, Vocals

   The Sound of Static is a 4 piece band that hails out of Chatham, Windsor and London. S.O.S comes from the remains of local seasoned bands the Janet Theory, Gates of Rage (Pit Bull Grin) and Whatever.

    Mat, Dave, Julio and Mark decided to get together for a few pops and some RnR. Immediately everything seemed to click and their first song Broken (and on top of the world) was written on the spot and the Sound of Static was born.. S.O.S plans on playing near a town near you soon and recording of an EP is planned for release early 2008, as a lot of people are wondering what you’re gonna get when you mix death metal with pop…the sound is neither metal nor pop…but something disturbingly in between!!!
