The UFO Club - S/T LP

Take a ride on the debut full length from The UFO Club, a collaboration between The Black Angels’ Christian Bland and Nights Beats’ Lee Blackwell. The self-titled album was recorded in the summer of 2010 at Laguna Studios in Austin, with Skyler McGlothlin of Shapes Have Fangs providing production and additional instrumentation.

The name is a homage to the legendary UFO Club of Pink Floyd-era 1960s London. Likewise, the sound bears resemblance to the classic Syd Barrett style, filtered through the minds and influences of Bland and Blackwell, including 50s pop, doo-wop, surf and rockabilly. The 11-track effort is available now via Reverberation Appreciation Society.

The UFO Club Record Release Party on Wednesday August 15th at Red 7 with performances from Night Beats, Fungi Girls, Cheap Curls, Holy Wave and The UFO Club! DJ sets from THE SHAKE. FREE entry courtesy of Sailor Jerry, RSVP here: http://ufo.sailorjerrypresents.com/
