The VACANT LOTS – ” 6 AM ” The Alan Vega Remix

From The Vacant Lots’ remix 7″ which is released on March 16th, 2015. Featuring re-workings of tracks from the debut album ‘Departure’ by the band’s heroes Alan Vega (Suicide) and Anton Newcombe (The Brian Jonestown Massacre).

‘Departure’ was mixed and mastered by former Spacemen 3 legend Sonic Boom and follows previous single releases on Mexican Summer and The Reverberation Appreciation Society, plus an appearance on our very own ‘Psych For Sore Eyes’ EP, now recognised as a landmark release in the burgeoning new psychedelic movement.

The key element of The Vacant Lots’ minimalist, primitive rock’n’roll songs is their boundless energy, which tears up the psychedelic rock template with a genuine punk spirit. Combine that with the use of synths and drum machines, and it’s not surprising to see why the band have won over Suicide’s Alan Vega, with whom they will be working very soon. Another famous friend is former Galaxie 500 and Luna frontman (and now Sonic Cathedral labelmate) Dean Wareham, who plays guitar on the album track ‘Tomorrow’.  Check back soon for pre-order information and details of UK and European live dates.
