New Addition: Make-Up – Blue Is Beautiful (1995)

Make Up Blue Is Beautiful I’m a long time fan of DC’s The Make-Up, the post Nation of Ulysses band led by the always fascinating  Ian Svenonius, and bought most of their more than a dozen singles as they were released, but failed to snag a copy of “Blue Is Beautiful” until this week. The debut release by the band, it was released on their own Black Gemini label, and was produced Fugazi‘s Guy Picciotto, who would later produce their first full length LP “Destination: Love; Live! At Cold Rice” for Dischord. Both sides of the single are available on the 1999 K Records compilation “I Want Some”, which was recently reissued by M’Lady’s Records, or you can usually snag the original 7″ for $5-$10 on ebay. Check out a recent live version of “Blue Is Beautiful” below!
