THE UFO CLUB
UFO Club is a collaboration between Christian Bland of The Black Angels and Lee Blackwell of The Nights Beats, recorded in summer of 2010 at Laguna Studios in Austin, TX. The project finds the duo (supplemented by Shapes Have Fangs / Laguna Studios mastermind Skyler McGlothlin) re-imagining 50s pop through the prism of 60s psych and the combined guitar work of Bland and Blackwell. The name is a homage to the legendary UFO Club of Pink Floyd-era 1960s London. The split gives a preview of their upcoming debut LP due in the summer, and two exclusive tracks: “Waiting for My Love” and a cover of Phil Spector / The Ronettes’ “Be My Baby”.
THE NIGHT BEATS
Seattleâ€™s The Nights Beats have made quite an impact on the psych scene in their short time as a band, touring relentlessly behind their H-Bomb EP to great acclaim while creating new material for their highly anticipated full length on Trouble In Mind, scheduled for a June 28 2011 release. The 4 songs on the split are are exclusive to this vinyl release. The Night Beats just blew minds once again at Austin Psych Fest for the second year in a row, GO SEE THIS BAND!
