  • Quotes

    • Jason Hill: When you hang out with us, you realize that we like having a laugh. But Alabama banned us-we weren't allowed to perform in the state. I have no idea why. I've been called a sexist and a male chauvinist. There was a really great article in San Francisco's paper, The Guardian, which was about 10 Reasons Why You Should Not Like Louis XIV; it was the greatest article I've ever read. I've even been called a racist when I used the terms Chocolate Girl and Vanilla Girl. I was trying to be playful and flirtatious. People don't realize when we're being tongue-in-cheek. But in some ways, the most negative press can also be the biggest compliment.

    • Jason Hill: (On Louis XIV's style of music) It was to have a very specific and unique sound. It didn't matter if anybody else dug it. All that mattered was making music that we wanted to make.

    • Jason Hill: (On first album) A loose story about a guy that begins to think he's Louis XIV, with themes of murder, decadence, and betrayal all intertwined.

  • Louis XIV - One of the best albums I have every heard

    It is very rare for me to like every song on an album, but with Louis XIV's The Best Little Secrets Are Kept not only did I like every song, I loved every song. They are all so catchy and sound great, there is nothing else out there that sounds like they do. The originality is something that has just recently become hard to find in new bands but Louis XIV have suceeded, in my view any way. It's a shame that more people don't know about them, with the right radio backing they could have been a very popular band.moreless
