Artist: THOMAS EDISUNS ELECTRIC LIGHT BULB BAND
Title: The Red Day Album
Format: LP + 7"
|"One of the most exciting finds in recent years is the previously-unreleased album from 1967 by this obscure U.S. psychedelic band, recorded around the same time of their ultra-rare Common Attitude 45, (famous for appearing on the Alien, Psychos & Wild Things comp). Led by the great Richard Orange,Thomas Edisun played Beatlesque, psychedelic pop/proto power-pop of the highest order with amazing songs and incredible harmony vocals. In 1967, just after Sgt. Pepper had come out, the band decided to register their own psychedelic masterpiece, so they entered a rudimentary studio and recorded a whole album during a weekend, under the influence of "smoking" and "mind-altering" substances . The album was never released, the tapes were stored in attics and basements, and the band broke up with some of their members forming cult power-pop band Zuider Zee.The Red Day Album ranges from pure Emitt Rhodes-Macca pop to Forever Amber/Lazy Smoke-styled lo-fi pop-sike and almost early Caravan keyboard freak-outs. Remastered sound from the original tapes. Includes an insert with photos and detailed liner notes by Jeremy Cargill (Ugly Things/Got Kinda Lost). Includes a 7" repro of their rare Common Attitude/No Ones Been Here for Weeks 45." -Guerssen.|
