    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    OGLIO RECORDS RELEASES NEW JEAN-JACQUES PERREY / DANA COUNTRYMAN CD:
    "DESTINATION SPACE"

    (Dateline: Los Angeles - The Oglio Entertainment Group, Inc., September
    23rd, 2008 release)

    JEAN-JACQUES PERREY: STILL WRITING, RECORDING AND ROCKING AT AGE 80

    *******

    Oglio Entertainment Group, Inc. has released the new Jean-Jacques
    Perrey / Dana Countryman CD, "DESTINATION SPACE". The CD is a new,
    all-instrumental collection of 17 original tunes, featuring Perrey's
    trademark craziness, but this time veering into Spy Rock and Science
    Fiction themes. Using classic 3Moog2 synthesizers, the CD is styled to
    be very retro, and very futuristic..

    At 80-years old, Jean-Jacques Perrey is a legend, and a pioneer in the
    popular electronic music field, and he continues to be a favorite and
    honored performer at electronic music festivals around the world. In
    the two years since their last Oglio CD ("THE HAPPY ELECTROPOP MUSIC
    MACHINE"), Perrey and Countryman have performed their special brand of
    crazy electronic pop in Germany, Norway, England, Holland, France,
    Switzerland, Romania, Russia and the United States. Young audiences
    have great respect for this living legend of electronic pop music,
    who, unlike many other musicians his age, is still composing, still
    performing and still rocking.

    Over the past five decades, Perrey has released many classic MOOG
    albums, featuring his trademark crazy tape loops and his catchy
    original melodies. His theme "Baroque Hoedown" (co-composed with
    Gershon Kingsley) has been featured as part of Disneyland's much-loved
    "Main Street Electrical Parade" for over 30 years. Perrey's "E.V.A."
    has been sampled by countless popular Hip-hop and Rap artists,
    including Ice T, Dr. Dre, Fatboy Slim, and many, many others. His
    music has been featured in countless commercials, and even THE BEATLES
    featured one of his tunes on one of their famous Christmas recordings!
    The Beastie Boys, Smashmouth, Negativland, They Might Be Giants, and
    Luke Vibert (to name just a few) have all paid tribute to Perrey in
    their own music.

    Perrey's music partner for "DESTINATION SPACE" is Seattle arranger and
    composer Dana Countryman. The duo have appeared in concert together in
    clubs and music festivals in Europe and America. The new CD was
    recorded in Countryman's studio, in the Seattle area. A culmination of
    two year's intense work, this CD blazes new musical territory for
    Perrey and Countryman, this time veering into more rock themes, and
    they even get funky with a Moog-ed out dance tune: "FUNKY LITTLE
    SPACEGIRL."

    Besides Perrey's famous happy-go-lucky space-age pop tunes,
    "DESTINATION SPACE" also features several new "Spy-Rock" tunes, and
    Science-Fiction themed musical creations. The closing song to
    "Destination Space" is "BEYOND THE MILKY WAY", Perrey and Countryman's
    first song, written with lyrics. Always aiming to surprise, the
    musical duo used computers to synthesize to create artificial singing
    voices for the song, instead of merely bringing in real singers. The
    effect becomes an eerie version of "The Carpenters Meet ELO in Outer
    Space."

    "DESTINATION SPACE" is Perrey's 22nd album in his long career, and at
    age 80, he is showing no signs of slowing down. Perrey and Countryman
    will be performing two very special shows in NYC and Montreal, to
    debut songs from the new CD:
