In 2008 Luke Sky, now a resident of the San Francisco Bay Area, decided to re-release Fàshiön’s groundbreaking first album Product Perfect. Please go to the Product Perfect page to read reviews of the record and gigs.
Having left his time capsule to mate Product Perfect’s vinyl with a CD, he then decided to write and record a new album – the first Fàshiön album to feature Luke Sky this millennium.
So, for Fàshiön fans everywhere the 10,735 nights of waiting are over and Luke proudly presents for your delectation Stairway To Nowhere.
Later this year there will be a book, also called Stairway To Nowhere, that will give hilarious, irreverent glimpses into Luke’s life during the two years he toured with Fàshiön. Name’s will be named, reputations besmirched, underwear-dirty and otherwise-flaunted in public. Luke has a battalion of terminator lawyers standing by to field the law suits.
Meanwhile, sit back and soak yourself in the lifegiving, rejuvenating sounds only to be found on the Stairway To Nowhere.
