"Last Of The Beats is Gray's second official album release, with beats and sounds from 1980s downtown New York to somewhere into the future. Founded in 1979 by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Gray was at the cutting edge of conceptual, avantgarde music, noise and sound making. Inspired by John Cage, Stockhausen, and The Velvet Underground, with their new album, Last Of The Beats, Gray continues to push the boundaries of beauty and transcendence in music and art. Last Of The Beats is also loaded with exciting collaborations by former collaborators, including King Britt and Deantoni Parks, and adds new names to this list, including U.K. producer James Lavelle of Mo'Wax and UNKLE fame, legendary dance music producer Arthur Baker, Spike Lee actor Roger Guenvuer Smith, famed Tubes drummer Prairie Prince, and writer/Warhol & GQ publisher Glenn O'Brien. The design/artwork for the album's cover is a photograph of a noise-generating piece of kinetic sculpture that Jean-Michel Basquiat actually played, when Gray performed for famed art gallerist Leo Castelli's 78th birthday party, back in 1980, in New York City."
