P. HUX Deluxe (1995)

Deluxe (1995)
Unpretentious Power Pop

Parthenon Huxley is one of those indie pop guys that always seems to pop up in the oddest places – joining a post-Jeff Lynne ELO (a.k.a. The Orchestra), producing A Man Called E (of the eels) or forming this top-notch power pop trio, P. Hux. And, ever since going national in 1980, he’s been savvy enough to fit snugly into any and all working situations – usually with above-par results. Deluxe, P. Hux’s 1995 debut, is rife with respect for The Who, The Beatles, even The Bears, and almost any other power pop benchmark you can name. Deluxe, though, is especially worth your pop time. It’s out of print, but still @ Amazon.

    In case you didn’t know, his real name is Rick Miller.I first knew him when we both lived in Chapel Hill, N in the 70’s.. Played with The Blazers & the Dads, before becoming Rick Rock. Somewhere I have some Rick Rock live on cassette tape from a local radio broadcast. I wouldn’t have believed it but he has an entry in Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parthenon_Huxley). Truly amazing.

    His debut record “Sunny Nights”, released in 1988 under the full Parthenon Huxley moniker, is one of the great lost power pop records, IMO. Just why this LP never made it big escapes me. I still own the vinyl. AND I have never seen a digital version of any kind floating around. It will be one of the very first vinyls I’ll digitize once I get a proper equipment up and running.
