ELECTRONIC: Pop Crossover, ROCK: 80's Rock

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Oakland-based Electronic Rock band Cuir Bleu (pronounced "kwi'r blue") was formed in August of 2001 by Kalib DuArte and Pixie Bleu to showcase Pixie's songwriting and enticing vocals against Kalib's electronic compositions. With a fetish flair and a positive attitude, Cuir Bleu's music is in a genre all its own: a solid high-energy blend of 80's Techno-pop, 90's Electronica and EBM/Industrial that the band calls "Electronic Rock with a spanking good beat"! Fans have compared Cuir Bleu to Berlin, Erasure, Lords of Acid, Curve and Fischerspooner.

THE RECORD: A project 2 years in the making, Cuir Bleu's debut EP "Slip Away" blends rich rock-influenced vocals with techno-laced dance beats, synthesizer, loops and electric guitar. The tracks range from techno-industrial/dance flavor ("Slip Away", "Falling Through Mirrors") and electronic rock ("Take a Picture", "Slip Away Stage Mix"), to sensuous and tantalizing ("I'm Your Lover" & "Branded Part 2"). The songs are evocative, showcasing the band's solid songwriting and sense of fun. This is the first in a planned set of four discs - three EPs to be followed by a DVD of music videos. The first 200 of each release will be a special Limited Edition, hand numbered and signed.

PRODUCTION: Mixing engineer and electronic musician Bobby Cochran (Hands Upon Black Earth) took the reins on preliminary production for this record, bringing the songs from the band's self-produced demo state to a clean, more professional sound. Digital mastering was done in Emeryville at Trancefusion Music by Eric Reynolds, who enhanced the songs, bringing out their unique flavor and creating an auditory treat.

PLAYING LIVE: Cuir Bleu gives a driving, high-energy live show with sexy go-go dancers added to the mix of electric guitar, keyboards and Pixie's soulful vocals. The band has played venues primarily in the San Francisco Bay Area, including the 2004 San Francisco LGBT Pride Event and the 2003 & 2005 Folsom Street Fairs. They have headlined at Club Revolution (Waves Saloon) in San Jose and launched a local band showcase at Oakland's Café Andalus. Cuir Bleu has appeared with renowned performance artist Frank Moore and his Cherotic All-Star Band on Frank's internet and radio simulcast program The Shaman's Den and Berkeley Public Access TV. The band's radio debut was with San Jose DJ, "The Batt", at station KSJS. Cuir Bleu's music and an interview were featured during The Batt's world-record breaking on-air event in September of 2001.
