Posthumous Music from Alan Vega

The wonderful folks at Sacred Bones Records are bringing us new old music from NY legend Alan Vega! According to the Sacred Bones site, "...Vega was constantly creating. That process naturally led to a wealth of material that didn’t see the light of day immediately when it was recorded, which came to be known as the Vega Vault. Mutator is the first in a series of archival releases from the Vault that will come out on Sacred Bones Records." 

The first of these releases, Mutator, was recorded in 1995-1996, and it drops on April 23. Pre-order HERE.

I can't wait to see what else Sacred Bones brings out of the "Vega Vault" (LOVE that such a thing exists). 


I'm not super impressed with what I've heard from the new album, however, it slots nicely into the Rob Zombie wheelhouse and there will definitely be a time/place for it in my routine. That said, I love this animated promotional short:


SRSQ - Unreality
Tassilo Hagström - Berlin (single)
Alan Vega - Nike Soldier (pre-release single)
A.R.E. Weapons - S/T
Alan Vega - Saturn Strip
Perturbator - Dangerous Days
Queensrÿche - Empire
Lard - Pure Chewing Satisfaction
Jim Williams - Possessor OST
Angelo Badalament- Twin Peaks OST



Emotional Jackpot. Power derived from Feeling. An oversaturation of emotion that while experiential, can cloud judgment and affect process.
