“I’ve seen Tom Lugo around, so I thought I would have a look at who he is. Usually, you find people are in a band and that’s about it, a few photos with their family maybe.

When I saw that Tom was a musician AND had a label AND another band AND another band AND he’s a black belt in martial arts AND another band etc… I began to take notice.

What I found is a polite, considerate, helpful man with an appetite for art. Let me introduce you to Tom Lugo.” 



Stellarscope’s latest release, ‘Standing In The Shadow Of Your Ghost’, is infused with what could easily be found in your early 80’s alternative scene with bands like The Sisters of Mercy, Joy Division, Bauhaus and The Jesus and Mary Chain. They’ve masterfully taken bits and pieces from the Post Punk era and brought them forward into today’s realm…..

Many thanks Tom Lugo and Stellarscope for taking the time for Torched Magazine!

Thank you The Ark of Music for the kind words!!! “Having listened to countless acts as a music critic, I can safely announce that a tasteful amount of contrast is always key to producing a great body of work. That said, abstract in its composition—yet intentional in its mood and message—veteran indie-rockers Stellarscope have created that contrast masterfully in Standing In The Shadow Of Your Ghost. The group is to be commended for finding the courage to continually evolve and expand as artists.

“Fifty-one bands from all around the world have joined their hearts and music together to pay tribute to one of the most passionate music enthusiasts that the shoegaze community has ever known. Premiering today, June 29th, at The Big Takeover is a compilation affectionately titled For The Love of Chris Tressler, dedicated to the memory of this amazing man.”


“Stellarscope are on undeniable form with this release and as the album continues they proceed to dazzle with craftsmanship honed over two decades of making music that draws influence from psych and space-rock, pre and post-punk, songs that contain soaring melodies and crashing guitar pyrotechnics within the space of a single verse. Never ones to merely repeat themselves, each track on Standing In The Shadow Of Your Ghost shows a different aspect of Stellarscope and their continuously evolving sound.” Read the full review here
