“We just signed [a two-year distribution deal] with PCT Music,” said Scott Stephens of Liquid Blue. By most standards, the North County dance-pop band has had a bitchin’ year that included a 60-country world tour, inclusion on the Peace Not War II benefit CD alongside the likes of Jane’s Addiction and Le Tigre, and the release of their debut album Supernova. Their song “If You Gotta Ask” was named the official campaign theme song of ill-fated presidential candidate Ralph Nader, and their tune “Real”—partially a tribute to Senator John McCain—resulted in an invitation to meet the Arizona politician on Election Day.
“We were selected from thousands of bands across the U.S.” Stephens said of the PCT program. “Twenty-four groups were selected to be part of a new distribution program, America’s Best Independent Artists” which helps bands without distribution deals get their albums into major retailers. The program’s goal is to increase sales by lowering prices, and 35,000 copies of Supernova, for instance, will be placed in Walgreens, Rite Aids and Targets.
Finally, Liquid Blue’s song “Rescue” will be used as the theme song to the new film by aquatic-life painter, Wyland. “The DVD will be released early next year—it should also get lots of play on PBS, Discovery Channel, etc., as his current video does,” Stephens predicted.
