Chris "LutaChrist" Dupre
Chris (Lutachrist) Dupre began playing guitar at the age of twelve. He took one guitar class before receiving his report card which promptly ended all non school activities. The following summer Chris took up a job at a pawn shop cleaning cockroaches out of VCRs and lawn keeping to pay for his first guitar. Never doing well in school Chris only wrote songs and drew album cover ideas in class instead of partaking in school work .
After years of counseling, school punishments and being constantly grounded nothing seemed to deter Chris from his goal to be a musician. When Chris was 16 he fell in with an older crowd. His skill level on guitar attracted people twice his age and he began to start getting offers from bands left and right. Band after band, show after show, era after era nothing seemed to be sticking.
Dealing with other people's problems and getting everyone on the same do or die mind frame that he himself held proved to be very difficult. Feeling that time is of the essence and completely tired of suffering other peoples insufficiencies Chris decided he was going to record a solo album which completely submerged him into the madness that is music production. With no studio, no help, cheap mics and burning desire Chris released his first solo full length at the age of 24.
By this time the seeds had been planted. Chris had already met Edwin Rhone and Ed had already introduced Chris to Dallas. Ten years and a ride from hell later, Narcotic Wasteland.
