Margot & The Nuclear So And So's

The dreamy, bittersweet music of Margot & the Nuclear So and So's is primarily the work of singer/songwriter Richard Edwards, who formed the indie rock collective in his native Indianapolis. Named after the Margot Tenenbaum character in Wes Anderson's sophisticated comedy The Royal Tenenbaums, the band took root in 2004, when Edwards decided to flesh out his scenic chamber pop sound with help from guitarist Andy Fry, cellist Jesse Lee, pianist Emily Watkins, trumpeter Hubert Glover, drummer Chris Fry, percussionist Casey Tennis, and bassist Tyler Watkins.

The band's debut album, The Dust of Retreat, was issued on the local indie label Standard Recording in 2005. The picturesque, dozen-song set earned the band a loyal following, and Margot & the Nuclear So and So's signed with Artemis Records later that year. A remixed and remastered version of The Dust of Retreat was released in March 2006, but a series of label acquisitions (Artemis bought V2, Virgin Records effectively absorbed the band, and Capitol merged with Virgin) convinced the group to partner with another company instead. They relocated to the Epic roster in October 2007 while working on their sophomore release. After tracking approximately 25 songs, however, the band clashed with Epic over which songs to include in the final release. As a result, two versions of the album were released: Animal!, a vinyl and digital release of the band's preferred version, and Not Animal, a traditional CD release featuring those songs favored by the label.

After touring in support of the Animal! albums, Edwards relocated to Chicago and began pruning the band's lineup, eventually dissolving it altogether and rebuilding it from the ground up. Margot & the Nuclear So and So's thus became a six-piece band featuring Brian Deck on drums, Ronnie Kwasman and Erik Kang on guitars, Cameron McGill on keyboards, and Tyler Watkins on bass. Watkins and Kang had both played in an earlier version of Margot & the Nuclear So and So's, while the other three were Chicago-based musicians who joined the lineup in 2009. After building a makeshift recording studio in an abandoned movie theater, the six explored a lean, rock-influenced sound on Buzzard, which became the band's third album after its release in September 2010. In 2012 the band returned with Rot Gut, Domestic, a stylistically adventurous album exploring more guitar-driven '90s-styled rock and flirting with country & western influences. Fifth album Sling Shot to Heaven arrived in 2014, recorded entirely to analog tape in the band's home studio and released on their own label. An alternate live version of the album, Tell Me More About Evil, followed later in the year and was also issued as a concert film. Entering their second decade of existence, the group released an expansive collection of over 50 previously unreleased songs, demos, and alternate takes titled Bride on the Boxcar: A Decade of Margot Rarities 2004-2014. The five-LP box set offered an album's worth of tracks from each of their original full-lengths to date and arrived via Joyful Noise in late 2015. ~ Andrew Leahey & MacKenzie Wilson

Look-->Psalm 24:3-10 says Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousnes s from the God of his salvation. This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face!

I believe people are portals! :-) We become a portal for what master's operation in our life and in the physical world in which we live. Look-->Revel a t i o n 3:20 says Here I am!

The solution to the problems in this world are not gun laws, nor a need to build a wall, not even a different president. I believe the solution is US BELIEVERS! Look--> Psalm 68:1 says, "Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered; l e t those who hate Him flee before Him." As we let God arise IN us, as we open our gates to Him, as we BECOME A PORTAL for His presence, power and promises on earth, will make the enemy scatter, the darkness will flee.

Why be wicked and borrow, and don't pay again: when you can be like the righteous and show mercy, and give. The righteous be blessed and shall inherit the earth; and if ANYONE do speak negatively against us THEY shall be cursed of us and shall be cut off from goodness; BUT the steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be cast down: because the Lord upholds him up with his hand. Believe me I have been young, and now am old; yet have I no
