Originally founded by guitarist and vocalist Sheila Sobolewski as a guitar and cello duo, LUFF has grown into a four-piece rock outfit currently comprised of Sheila, Robin Pickering (Triple Creme) on guitar, Aleks Gylys (Serica Ux, Coulter) on drums, and Mike Hurst (Serica Ux, Coulter) on bass. LUFFÂ’s music can be heard in several short films and documentaries, and Sheila and Robin scored the
documentary Alternative High for Reel Works in 2010.

Lyrics

Blanket Ice

Written By: Sheila Sobolewski

there the traps and mines cease
where our confidence sleeps
the mean reap nothing

she quietly disarms
rebuilds land and farm
and blankets their ice
