Antifluff Superstar was composed & recorded during a period of unprecedented self-growth. All of the material was conceived, recorded & mixed without any constrictions regarding when the music was documented as a musical expression. This creates a spontaneity and freshness not easily duplicated in the recording studio.
“OFFBEAT”, New Orleans’ premier music magazine wrote:
“Mark Galasso who gifted us with some of the best modern Louisiana pop around on 1997’s PERCHAPLECTIC, returns with a new persona as Antifluff Superstar, completing his studio-perfectionistic control-freak journey full circle. He’s even starting to sound like other wizards and true stars: his funk is becoming positively Princely, his twisted classicism Rundgrenian, his confessionality Lennonesque. The title track dips and weaves between three decades of damaged art-pop like a drunk on a binge. Just when he seems unfathomable, he polishes off a Beatlesque gem (“Jin’s Jet”), rips out a solid groove (“Stuck Here Without You”), or takes the piss out of his ambition by re-working one his commercial jingles (“Bonus Lucky 7″) and all is well. Mark’s colossally, wonderfully self-obsessed. The sheer audacity and frightening intensity of his ambition is absolutely thrilling. In a state that forgot how to make solid, non-derivative pop music a few decades ago, that’s to be celebrated.”
Mark Galasso-a.k.a “Antifluff Superstar”-has been recognized Nationally and Internationally for nine spectacular radio jingles he has written for the Louisiana Lottery Corporation.
