Blast from the past - OF LOVE AND JUSTICE release now on iTunes!

Newly released to iTunes and Apple Music, in Revolution 1989, Gradation Music chronicles the unreleased music of the long defunct Houston, TX band Of Love and Justice.


Of Love and Justice was a three-piece modern rock band formed by lead vocalist/guitarist Ferni Lopez, bassist/vocalist Steve 'Kosher' Doria and drummer/vocalist Eric Siebert. When the band first arrived on the local Houston music scene in mid 1989, to when they disbanded in early 1991, they were something of an anomaly. Not fitting neatly into any one musical genre, the group melded their musical tastes together to form a unique musical style all their own within the local scene. One writer for Houston's Public News in 1990 summed up their sound like this - "Imagine Buffalo Springfield meeting early Pink Floyd...at CBGB's."


The OLAJ fan base grew steadily with energized shows at Houston venues such as Fitzgerald's, The Axiom, Downtown Grounds, Washington Avenue Showbar and Dan Electro's Guitar Bar, until eventually calling it quits.

A special edition of this release, including digital extra's,  is also available from Gradation Music at OFLOVEANDJUSTICE.BANDCAMP.COM
