When Alan Vega, the godfather of electro punk, and Anton Newcombe, the deranged uncle of the neo-psych movement, remix your songs…pat yourself on the back, ’cause you done good.

I can’t think of two musicians that define The Vacant Lots better than Vega and Newcombe, as The Lots combine horror B-movie synthesizers with swirling Codeine-drenched guitar grooves.  There’s so much here for fans of psychedelic music to enjoy.  There’s the heavy syringe of Spacemen 3, the elegantly wasted tremor of The Velvet Underground and the vintage cool of The Black Angels.  It’s a 7” only Sonic Cathedral Records could put out.  File it next to your ‘Psych For Sore Eyes’ compilations.




The Details

Copies from the Sonic Cathedral Shop come with an acetate insert that creates an amazing moire effect with the centre label.
