Graham Norton…


So this time last week Sir Graham Norton played our song ‘Red Moon Falls’ on his BBC Radio 2 show… which is lovely. It has also been pointed out by numerous people that Graham had a little chat about us after our song. Graham was particularly complimentary about how handsome SOME members of the band are, but how “achievable” other members are.  So we feel that now is the time to address this point, and to help Graham and all of you guys to understand our very unique look… Now as most of you will know, ALL UK BANDS for the last 15 years, without exception have been put together by Louis Walsh at the Bootcamp stage of TV show ‘The X Factor’… We were of course, no different. It’s just how it’s done now! (Ask Snow Patrol if you don’t believe me!!!)

Usually, Louis will pick 4 or 5 of the best looking singers and bundle them together in a cynical attempt to win votes from the Great British public… but with us, Louis decided to experiment a little and deviate from his usual formula.  Having discovered the obvious model good looks of our very own Rob and Clark, Louis felt the best way to display their innate beauty would be to drape them against a rather more plain backdrop. In fact, his exact words were…

“Find me an ‘effin drummer who looks like a Muppet that Jim Henson didn’t finish, put in his woodworm riddled shed and forgot about for a decade!”


“A keyboard player who looks like he could have been good looking, but then didn’t step off the escalator at the end, got pulled in and squashed down to half his original height. BUT he was left with the genitals of a much taller man so in a way he is still happy!”  (What? I’m writing the blog!!!)

So… Mike and I were discovered and Rubylux was formed!  It’s an unusual set-up, but it works for us. After that strange start where we had to battle with being only half as good looking as some of the other bands that Louis creates, we are really happy to now be hearing our songs on radio stations all over the UK and in a way, we ourselves have even forgotten just HOW ugly we are… so it took Graham to mention it for us to remember our past and pluck up the courage to let you in to our little secret!

Love as always X PS some events in this blog are likely to have been fabricated for your entertainment!!!  Except that bit about why Ad is a bit short etc…
