By popular demand, people want Michael Knott's back catalog on vinyl! Our goal is to make that happen! This will be a trial run for us, if it goes well look for more albums to be reissued on vinyl and CD! We will begin with the 1989 classic L.S.U. album "Wakin' Up The Dead"! "Waking' Up The Dead" is the album that launched the Blonde Vinyl ship into the raging sea, cutting the way for all relevant Christian Alternative record labels that followed. This Post-Punk masterpiece will be remastered by J.Powell at Steinhaus Mastering, he has recently worked on the Daniel Amos reissues/remasters as well as the Retroactive Records releases of Lifesavers "Heaven High" and L.S.Underground's "PTSD" albums.
"Wakin' Up The Dead" will be pressed on random colored vinyl, so each record is unique, no two will be alike. The packaging will be a double gatefold cover with a brand new painting by Michael for the cover!
Why do a new painting? Well the original paintings were not able to be located and blowing up the old cassette and CD art up to 12" vinyl size will not look very good. On the plus, one lucky person will get the painting as a pledge option!
We will also be pressing high quality replicated CD's! Not CDR's this time!
Digital release will also be available!
1 The Bomb
2 Ocean Blue
4 House Of Love
5 Revival Nineties
6 Carry Me To Cairo
7 Come Alive Again
8 Dancin' In The Kettle
9 I Need You So
10 Nineties Tease
11 Wakin' Up The Dead
STRETCH GOAL! STRETCH GOAL! STRETCH GOAL!
If we surpass our goal by $5,000, Michael Knott and Joshua Lory will collaborate once again to record a brand new full length record! and everyone who backs the "Wakin' Up The Dead" rerelease will get a copy on CD as well as a digital download of the new album upon completion! Backers will receive the album before it goes too the general public!
We have some cool package deals with the remaining vinyl and CD's of the "Songs From The Feather River Highway" EP and even fewer of the remaining "Rocket And A Bomb Live!" DVD's!
