Title: s/t
Format: 7"
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Although they only got a couple of spins around the earths axis, Vacuum were the band who wrote the clay tablets from which all great Christchurch groups worth a plug would glean substance to formulate THAT sound. Originating in 1977 & consisting of members Bill Direen, Stephen Cogle, Peter Stapleton, Peter Fryer & Alan Meek, Vacuum perfected an aural symmetry that fused classic Nuggets, Roxy, Elevators & Velvets moves as a template & this unique plonk would become germane for all that sailed after. Deep collectors will recognize these tracks by name from various prior releases, but these particular recordings-culled from 78/79 rehearsal tapes-are being made available here for the 1st time, EVER. Kicks would go on to become an early staple in Direens Builders discography, but the guitar on this version is particularly & wonderfully unhinged. The beautiful serenity of Cogles Shade - masterfully driven by Meeks keyboard--is as crisp out of the gate as the later honed version familiar in the oeuvre of the Victor Dimisich Band. The real thunderclap of the bunch is Accident (another take can be found on The Builders Beatin Hearts lp) where it sounds like someone spiked the Tia Maria with peyote & as a result, the band has psychically disemboweled Heard Her Call My Name & fed the guts to Amon Duul. Ive said it for years, electric liqueurs dont lie! One time edition of 300. File alongside; Six Impossible Things, Pin Group, Builders, Victor Dimisich Band, Above Ground, Scorched Earth Policy, Dadamah & Terminals." - Siltbreeze.
SOLD OUT

Artist: VACUUM
Title: Walking Slow
Format: 7"
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Edition of 300. A long wait to be sure on this one, but well worth it. Second installment of archival tracks from this legendary Christchurch outfit, culled from cassette recordings circa 1978-78. For the uninformed, Vacuum were the genesis, the ground zero, the guys that forged the ChCh "sound". While the bands lifespan was short, its members would go on to soon after form Bilders, Pin Group, Victor Dimisich Band, Scorched Earth Policy & Terminals. Before Flying Nun, before ANYTHING, there was Vacuum. These recordings are being offered up for the 1st time, ever." -Siltbreeze.
